METALLICA - Klassiker auf Vinyl



METALLICA werden ihren Klassiker-Backkatalog nach und nach auf Vinyl wieder veröffentlichen. Zunächst wird es ein Re-Release der ersten beiden Scheiben 'Kill 'Em All' und 'Ride the Lightning' am 15 April in den USA geben. Wann auch in Europa mit einer Veröffentlichung zu rechnen ist, steht noch nicht fest. Dazu die Band auf ihrer Homepage:

"While we're finishing up the new album, we told the dudes at the record company we thought it might be cool to dust off the old tapes and get all retro with some vinyl re-releases... First up are the first two albums (duh!?), 'Kill 'Em All' and 'Ride the Lightning', coming out on April 15 in North America and pretty fucking close to that in the rest of the world.

"There will be two like the original on a single disc spinning at 33 1/3, the other a two disc, 180-gram vinyl, 45 rpm package all in a double gatefold. The music was half speed mastered from the original analog tapes at Mobile Fidelity to bring you audiophile quality. Both versions will be available in the online store here and over at MetClub.

"Oh, and in case you were wondering, 'Master' and 'Justice' will obviously be next and should be coming out on vinyl in June."
