The first album with Jason Newsted.

The album's central theme is "Injustice".

Metallica's first promotional video was shot for "One". Three different versions/edits of that video exist, featuring cuts from the movie "Johnny got his gun", on which it is based.

The Japanese version has a bonus track:
10. The Prince (Diamond Head cover) (04:25)

Cliff Burton receives co-writer's credit on "To Live Is to Die" as the bass line was a medley of unused bass recordings Burton had performed prior to his death. While the original recordings are not used on the track, the compositions are credited as written by Burton and are played by Metallica's bassist at the time, Jason Newsted. The words spoken towards the end of the song ("when a man lies, he murders some part of the world...") by Hetfield were written by German poet Paul Gerhardt, but are mis-attributed to Burton in the liner notes.

According to Flemming Rasmussen, when mixing the album he was asked to ‘Take the bass down so you can just hear it, and then once you’ve done that take it down a further 3dBs.’
