Metallica plan re-issue of ‘…And Justice For All’

September 7, 2018

This is a long time coming. Metallica has finally announced the details of the re-issue of their classic album “…And Justice For All”!



The album was released in 1988 and success-wise was a natural progression for the band. They did well with “Master Of Puppets” but “Justice…” went 8x platinum in the US alone and set the band up for a HUGE release with their next album, the “Black” album.

Plus, “Justice” spawned the band’s first video, “One”.

Metallica says this re-issue is being released on November 2 through their own “Blackened Recordings” imprint and is remastered by Greg Fidelman “for the most advanced sound quality”, available on the following:

  • A Standard Double 180 gram LP, Standard CD
  • 3 CD Expanded Edition
  • Cassette
  • Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set
  • Expanded Edition (download only)
  • Digital Deluxe Box Set (on streaming and download)

You can pre-order the Expanded Edition – hear unreleased demos, rough mixes, unreleased live tracks and never-before-seen Ross Halfin photos!

The question remains, does this “most advanced sound quality” mean the remastering will see the bass tracks get the auditory level they deserve?
