Metallica has released a cryptic message for fans that alludes to an epic celebration of the Black Album‘s 30th anniversary.

The group has released a live clip of “Wherever I May Roam” from 1992 captioned #BlackAlbum2021? which originally was captioned #ComeThisFall. As a group that loves to celebrate big milestones it’s not hard to fathom a “Remastered Deluxe Box Set” featuring multi-live set performances. With the band headlining some major festivals this fall, including headlining two of the three nights at the Aftershock Festival, it’s also entirely possible we get some full-album performances.

The band’s self-titled fifth album not only won a Grammy and made its way to the Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, but it also is the 22nd best selling record in the world at 25 million copies sold.

With Kill ‘Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, …And Justice for All, Death Magnetic, and Hardwired… to Self-Destruct all having Deluxe rereleases, it’s about time the Black Album gets its due. We’re already rocking out in our heads to a live remaster of Enter Sandman.
