Metallica - The $5.98 EP: Garage Days Re-Revisited [CD] (Lenticular Longbox, remastered, limited to 20,000)
The Wait is over…Actually, it's back! Nearly three decades after going out of print, Metallica will release a remastered version of The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited on April 13, 2018 as part of thir ongoing remasters series via their own Blackened Recordings label.
Originally released over 30 years ago on August 21, 1987, the collection features the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and The Misfits. The five songs from the EP were later included as a part of the 1998 multi-platinum release Garage, Inc., but the band felt it was time to bring it back in the original formats!
The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA.
Metallica was formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield and in the nearly 37 years since, they've pretty much done it all. If you need to know more, loads of facts can be found on Wikipedia ... and some of them are even true. One more thing you should know: the European leg of their WorldWired tour will recommence on February 1st in Lisbon, Portugal, and continue through May.
