Metallica's 'Master Of Puppets' Selected For National Registry

(hennemusic) Metallica's 1986 album classic, "Master Of Puppets", is among 25 sound recordings selected for induction into the US Library Of Congress National Recording Registry.

"The title track starts unsurprisingly enough with a crisp power chord and catchy riff," highlights the National Recording Registry entry, "but halfway through, the tempo slows and a clean arpeggiated progression, accompanied by cello-like tones, introduces Hetfield's mid-tempo lead which eschews tapping, sweep picking and, other metal guitar techniques.

"Black Sabbath bassist and lyricist Geezer Butler has commented that Metallica's 1980s output brought the music 'back to the spirit of [Black] Sabbath' and, he further emphasizes, 'If we started it, then [Metallica] reinvented it.'" Read more here.
