Black Album Reissue?

2021 is the 30th Anniversary of the self-titled Metallica album, but the band has been quiet about the idea of any possible celebration….until recently. On Friday, the band posted a minute long excerpt from a 1992 live performance of “Wherever I May Roam” with the hashtag #BlackAlbum2021? In the past five years, the band has released reissues for Kill ‘Em AllRide the Lightning, and ….And Justice For All to mark their 30th Anniversaries. With the album officially hitting its third decade in August, it seems pretty likely that we’ll see a new Black Album reissue in the second half of 2021.
