Last week was an eventful week for the metal icons. First they announced a line of album-themed watches, and then a Metallica-branded whiskey called Blackened. Finally on Friday, they began teasing their long-awaited ...And Justice for All re-release.
There has been much discussion around the seemingly elusive release. In 2017 producer/engineer Toby Wright, who handled some of the engineering on Justice said he would "love to remix" the album. The longstanding issue around the album is the absence of Jason Newsted's bass.
In Feb. of this year, Justice mixer Steve Thompson claimed that Metallica don't have plans to remix the album. “I just contributed to the anniversary album of …And Justice [for All]," he told the Talk Toomey Podcast. "I just sent them a bunch of pictures and some outtakes, but they have no desire to remix the record. They want to keep it the way it is. They might remaster it or something like that, but there is only so much mastering you can do. And I’ll tell you the truth, I don’t even know if those original multi-tracks could be saved. Because there are like 5 million edits in them from Lars‘ drums alone. So if you have the box and open it up there probably be about 50 million pieces of tape all over the place.”
