…And Justice For All (2018 Reissues)

Bang Your Heads Like It Is 1988… again!

The reissue and expanded version of “…And Justice For All” is coming on November 2, 2018.

Thanks to Metallica.com, we get the Cassette and 3CD versions a little bit early; the Box Set is scheduled to arrive on the release date.

…And Justice For All” (Wikipedia) was originally released on August 25, 1988. It was the first full-length record featuring Jason Newsted on bass, filling in for Cliff Burton who was tragically killed in a bus accident on September 27, 1986. The song “One” is notable for being the first video single from Metallica. It was also nominated and won for the first Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.

This reissue is remastered but not remixed. For those who hoped for the bass tracked to be turned up in the mixed shouldn’t hold their breath.

The Cassette version also comes with MP3 Download card.

Metallica: Silver goes the Black Album

Metallica Black Album CD

Metallica released its biggest selling album on August 12, 1991; that’s twenty-five years ago to the date. Metallica’s self-titled album, spawned five singles:

  1. “Enter Sandman”
  2. “The Unforgiven”
  3. “Nothing Else Matters”
  4. “Wherever I May Roam”
  5. “Sad But True”

“The Black Album” as it is commonly referred to, went on to sell more than 16 million copies as of August, 2015 in the United States alone. Per Wikipedia article, It has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. In February, 2016 “The Black Album” was selling about 5,000 units per week; better than many newly released records that month.

“The Black Album” was the record that helped Metallica break into the mainstream music scene.

On May 7, 2012 Metallica performed “The Black Album” in its entirety from the last song to the first in Prague, Czech Republic.

I still play songs from the record to this day as it is one of my all time favorite along with the first four Metallica records.

New Release Tuesday: Bad Religion, Megadeth, Family Guy, South Park and Iron Man 2.

It is New Release Tuesday here in The United States and I know that I’m going to go broke.

Sudden Death was recorded for Guitar Hero – Warriors Of Rock.
