March 3, 2016, marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Metallica’s triumphant breakthrough MASTER OF PUPPETS. Already solidified as a metal force via their first two independent albums, Metallica crashed through the commercial ceiling on its major label debut, upending the image-heavy MTV video bands and carving out a place in the mainstream for the thrash metal resistance. Join us for a track-by-track breakdown of Master at 30, including Metallica studio and live tracks, plus tributes by Mastodon, Tankard, Primus, Parthian Shot, Ensiferum, and others. Know your Roots!
