Eight of rock's hottest bands have contributed to a special re-recording of METALLICA's "Master of Puppets" in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the classic album's release and the 25th anniversary of the magazine Kerrang! The CD will be given away free with Kerrang! issue 1102, which goes on sale April 5. Magazines with the special CD will be available in the usual spots outside of the U.K. — at your favorite record store or book store if they normally import Kerrang!

"Remastered" features exclusive recordings by BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, TRIVIUM, FIGHTSTAR, MACHINE HEAD, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND, CHIMAIRA, MASTODON and MENDEED, with the sleeve notes for the album written by none other than Lars Ulrich. "It's awesome to think that some of you guys weren't even born when we recorded 'Master Of Puppets'!" laughed Lars. "When we started thinking about Kerrang! honoring 'Master of Puppets' with this tribute album, and saw the artwork and the line-up of bands we realized it was a big deal. We're honored that it's a record that's perceived as a milestone and a record that's been so inspiring to so many people, both fans and young bands like TRIVIUM and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. We're as excited to hear this as you guys are!"
