Well-known British photographer Ross Halfin has shared rare pictures of Metallica frontman James Hetfield, on his official Instagram account and remembered the times of the Metallica’s Master Of Puppets era.
In 1986, Metallica has released the third studio album of the band, named Master Of Puppets, and stunned the whole world with their songs like Battery, Master Of Puppets, and Orion. With this album, they have made their own legacy in the music scene.
If you can check out the pictures below, you can see that James was looking so young with his long yellow and curly hair. His good synergy and happiness can be seen with his face. Also, one of the pictures, he was screaming on the stage like a mad man and looking so cool with this appearance.
While we were writing this, the picture got over 18.000 likes less than ten hours and most of the fans left some interesting comments in the post.
Here is what Ross Halfin wrote:
“As it’s been 34 years to the day since Metallica released Master of Puppets, here are few photographs from that era of the band. #rosshalfin #metallica #masterofpuppets”
A fan named Andy Misselbrook said:
“Thanks, Ross. This takes me right back… When I could still balance on a board! I was just starting to hear of Metallica at school… 😎”
Another fan named Markus Jacobi added this comment:
“A milestone in metal history… Goosebumps when I think about it… Hetfield, Burton, Ulrich and Hammett were 23-24 years old at this time – very unique.”
