Hard to believe it, but 25 years ago yesterday, Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" was released, and turned the metal world upside down. Mike Meyer at the Phoenix New Times has just launched a 10-part series on the best thrash metal albums of 1986, starting with Puppets. He was able to sit down with "Puppets" producer Flemming Rasmussen To talk about what it was like to record such an important album. "Master is a perfection of the sound we started to evolve on Ride. And in my opinion, we did really master it on Master. That album sounds so good. Right from the demos, we pretty much knew this was gonna be a killer album. I think we all felt that this was gonna be the best Metallica album yet, as we had a bunch of really strong songs. Even the instrumentals were awesome." To read more of this interview, visit www.hennemusic.com
