Metallica Album Coming to Guitar Hero III


For all you music enthusiasts and video game rockers, this Friday (September 12, 2008) will be a monumental first for both the gaming and music industries. Metallica’s ninth album, Death Magnetic, will be available as downloadable content for Activision’s Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, and you will also be able to pick up the album at your local music store. Also included with this DLC is two renditions of “Suicide & Redemption” that has extended solos by James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett. But don’t let what you read totally impress you because the best has yet to be told. For all you rockers that will be picking up Guitar Hero World Tour, this DLC album is forward compatible. Meaning, all you have to do is pick up Guitar Hero World Tour and the album will seamlessly integrate with the game when it is released this October at no extra charge.

The content will be available for download on the Xbox 360 and for the Playstation 3. The content will set back Xbox 360 owners 1440 Microsoft Points, and Playstation 3 owners will have to pay $17.99 in order to play this content. Don’t let the price detour you from checking out this. Not only can you play the content on two different games, but you get 11 songs, plus exclusive recordings of “Suicide & Redemption.”
