“Today” is the 35th anniversary of Metallica’s epic Master of Puppets. I have to admit that I never cared for it. I think because I was expected to care for it. It just wasn’t my thing. I thought (and still do) that Ride the Lightning was the better album. But, I have to say that I have turned around my thoughts and this whole album is pretty much a beast. I dig it now. It took me analyzing it for the Rolling Stone list to figure that out. Well, how about a contemporary punk band doing a cover? Let’s go with that. Enjoy!
Until “tomorrow,” same blog channel…
“End of passion play, crumbling away. I’m your source of self-destruction. Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear. Leading on your death’s construction. Taste me, you will see, more is all you need. Dedicated to how I’m killing you.” – “Master of Puppets” (Burton/Hammett/Ulrich/Hetfield)
