Last week, Metallica shared an …And Justice For All Deluxe Edition teaser and today (6th), the legends have confirmed the news. On November 2nd, Metallica will celebrate the album’s 30th Anniversary by releasing a definitive reissue via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Of course, this would go well with the group’s own Blackened Whiskey. Think about it, after downing a considerable amount of Blackened bourbon while listening to the song “Blackened,” you will convince yourself that there is plenty of bass on the record.
In all seriousness, this remaster looks well-worth it. The remastering was overseen by Greg Fidelman and it is expected to include previously unreleased audio and video recordings. Pre-orders for this 30-year celebration is available now, and you can find it on the band’s website. Additionally, you can find the entire track listing at this location. Similar to previous box sets, there will be expanded and deluxe editions that will feature previously unreleased material such as demos, rough mixes, video, live albums, interviews, never before seen photos, and more as the press release states:
“The …And Justice For All reissue will be available physically as a Standard Double 180 gram LP, Standard CD, 3 CD Expanded Edition, CAssette, Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set and digitally as a Standard album (available to stream and download), an Expanded Edition (available for download only), and a Digital Deluxe Box Set (available for streaming and download). The Expanded Edition will include previously unreleased demos, rough mixes, previously unreleased live tracks, and an expanded booklet of never-before-seen Ross Halfin photos. The one-pressing-only Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set will include the remastered double 180g LP, a “One” picture disc, 3 LPs featuring their iconic performance from SEattle in 1989 remixed by Greg Fidelman, 11 CDs, 4DVDs, a set of four patches, a Pushead print, a tour laminate, lyric sheets, a download card for all material in the set, and a deluxe 120-page book with never-before-seen photos and never-before told stories from the people who were there.”
