The metal men of Metallica have announced full details for the deluxe reissue of their famed 1988 album, “…And Justice for All,” which turns 30 this year. The re-release will be available in a bevy of packages, including a goodie-packed Limited-Edition Deluxe Box Set, and arrive in stores on Nov. 2.

The limited-edition deluxe box set will offer the original album re-mastered as a double LP, plus lots of extras, including a “One” picture disc; a re-mixed live performance from the band’s 1989 Seattle concert on three LPs; 11 CDs packed with rough mixes, demos and live recordings; four DVDs; and a digital download card with everything. Call it the gift for the ultimate Metallica fan.

The box set also offers some Metallica swag, such as a tour laminate, Metallica patches, lyric sheets and 120-page book with photos that tell the Metallica tale.

In advance of the deluxe reissue, Metallica has shared re-mastered versions of “Dyers Eve” and a 1988 live-in-London recording of “Eye of the Beholder” online. The songs can be streamed via the YouTube players below.

“…And Justice for All” is a major album for Metallica, as it marks the band’s first release following the tragic passing of bass player Cliff Burton in 1986. On the original album, bass player Jason Newsted’s playing is hardly audible, so many fans are wondering if the reissue will bring out the bass. The album also features the anti-war song, “One.” For more information on the reissue, head to
