Metallica's Kirk Hammett Looks Back At Master of Puppets

(Classic Rock) Metallica's Kirk Hammett remembers being bored during recording sessions for their classic album Master of Puppets, because it took Lars Ulrich so long to lay down his drum tracks.

The guitarist says he'd sometimes have to hang around for days, playing cards with late bassist Cliff Burton. But despite that, he has fond memories of making the 1986 work, recently voted the greatest heavy metal album of all time.

"That album is my favourite Metallica album. We'd been playing together as a band with that lineup for about three years," Hammett tells Rolling Stone. "We were definitely peaking. Master of Puppets, in my opinion, was the sound of a band really gelling, really learning how to work well together."
