Master of Puppets è il terzo album in studio del gruppo musicale statunitense Metallica, pubblicato il 3 marzo 1986 dalla Elektra Records[11] e il 7 dello stesso mese dalla Music for Nations.[12]

Il disco si posizionò alla posizione 29 nella Billboard 200[13] e divenne il primo album dei Metallica a superare le 500.000 copie. Nel 2003, l'album è stato certificato sei volte disco di platino dalla RIAA per aver venduto oltre sei milioni di copie negli Stati Uniti d'America.[9] Prima dell'inizio dell'era SoundScan nel 1991, Master of Puppets ha venduto 4.578.000 copie.[14] Nel 2016 è stato inserito nella National Recording Registry dalla Biblioteca del Congresso degli Stati Uniti d'America in quanto «culturalmente, storicamente, ed esteticamente significativo».[15]

Il disco[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

Grazie alle doti compositive dei singoli componenti del gruppo, l'album riesce a ritagliarsi un posto di prima grandezza nel mondo del thrash metal; dalla maggior parte della critica specializzata viene considerato come il miglior album del gruppo, nonché uno dei più riusciti dischi heavy metal di sempre. Da notare la buonissima produzione per l'epoca (1986): come riportò il frontman James Hetfield in varie interviste, venne data una grande attenzione allo spessore e alla potenza del suono delle chitarre, caratteristiche che con il tempo divennero uno dei punti di riferimento per il genere.

Dall'album è stato estratto il singolo omonimo, pubblicato esclusivamente in Francia. Nel disco è inoltre presente il brano strumentale Orion, penultima composizione del bassista Cliff Burton prima della sua scomparsa avvenuta nel 1986.

Il 10 novembre 2017 il gruppo ha ripubblicato l'album in edizione rimasterizzata e presentata in varie edizioni, tra cui una deluxe comprensiva di concerti inediti, interviste e demo.[16]
