10 essential guitar albums - Metallica 'Master Of Puppets'


“James Hetfield's right hand – does it get any better than that? That's what makes this an essential metal record, that incredible rhythm playing. Being European, I thought that this was a really interesting record because it seemed to be a mixture of American and European metal sensibilities. And Metallica made that combination work beautifully too.

“Kirk Hammett’s playing is great because he has a little bit of a classical influence going on. But James’ right hand – that was the sound. It's this huge, powerful attack. It was the direction for many, many metal bands that followed. Hetfield was super influential.”
