Metallica - Master of Puppets
Metallica - Master of Puppets "Master of Puppets" is a well known song by thrash metal band Metallica. It is the title track of their 1986 album. It is also following the tradition of Ride the Lightning in having the title track as the second track, preceded by a shorter, high-speed typical thrash metal track. There are several such track similarities on Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice for All. "Master of Puppets" is also notable for its long and complex instrumental section beginning about three and a half minutes into the song. The song, as Lars Ulrich explained, is about being controlled by some kind of manipulative force relentlessly. The song features a chromatic introduction riff and a change into a Spanish phrygian interlude. Before the second solo of the song, bassist Cliff Burton, can be vaguely heard in the background reciting the verse, in a deep gruff voice. * During the recording of the main guitar solo, Kirk Hammett pulled the E string off of the fret board while hitting the wammy bar, making a high pitch sound. Because they thought it sounded cool, they left it in there. He could never figure out exactly what he did, so he often played an artificial harmonic when playing the song live to substitute. * The song has been ranked as the 3rd greatest heavy metal song ever by VH1.[1] In March 2005, Q magazine placed it at number 22 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. * The song was ranked #2 in Martin Popoff book The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs Of All Time. Popoff put together this book by requesting thousands of metal fans, musicians, and journalists to send in their favorite heavy metal songs. Almost 18,000 individual votes were tallied and entered into a database from which the final rankings were derived. * The song was said to be bassist Cliff Burton's favorite Metallica song.
