The BackBlast:

In 1986, an up and coming US metal band returned to Denmark to record their third studio album. Fresh off the unexpected success of Ride the Lightning, the band came with a chip on their shoulder and determined to prove that they were a true force in rock n’ roll. The result was Master of Puppets. With all the power and precision of Ride the Lightning, but with more dynamic tempo and time signature shifts, acoustic guitar, and stronger lyrics, it took the world by storm and was recognized as an instant classic. Ten strong pax gathered this fine Saturday morning to honor this colossal achievement in rock.
