March Marks The 25th Anniversary of Metallica’s “Master Of Puppets”

So I’m officially gettin’ old…the album that had the biggest impact of my youth has been out for 25 years now. The album had actually been out a little over a year when I first heard it at the age of 15 and it literally changed my life. Because of Metallica and Master Of Puppets in particular, I went on to get into other thrash bands like Slayer, Testament, Megadeth, etc. and really became consumed with the underground metal scene. To this day I get goosebumps when I hear the main riff to “Battery” kick in. Master Of Puppets is everything I could ever ask for in a record…speed, technicality, melody and flat-out epic songwriting. From the opening riff to the title track to the haunting dirge of “The Thing that Should Not Be” on through the straight-up thrash masterpiece “Damage, Inc.”, the album is as close to perfect as I have ever heard…every single track on the album is phenomenal. Metallica may have made a lot of mistakes over the course of the last 20 years, but there’s a reason people mention their name in the same breath as Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Black Sabbath…that reason is Master Of Puppets.
