Fresh details on Activision’s upcoming Guitar Hero Metallica have surfaced in the latest issue of Game Informer – that is, according to posters over on Score Hero who claim to have nabbed a copy of the magazine.
The game will allegedly include various tracks from band that toured and worked with Metallica over the years, along with several unannounced tracks from the likes of Foo Fighters, Slayer and Queen.
Check out what you can expect below from contributing artists:
Alice In Chains: No Excuses
Bob Seger: Turn The Page
Judas Priest: Hell Bent For Leather
Kyuss: Demon Cleaner
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Tuesdays Gone
Mastodon: Blood and Thunder
Michael Schenker Group: Armed and Ready
Samhain: Mother of Mercy
The Sword: Black River
Naturally, Metallica themselves will be offering up a healthy dose of their own works, which so far includes the following tracks:
For Whom The Bell Tolls
Hit The Lights
Master of Puppets
No Leaf Clover
Nothing Else Matters
Sad But True
Where I May Roam
"We wanted a little bit of a different slant. Basically, you start out and you play some songs and you get warmed up, and there's a competition. We're trying to pick a band to play with us and go on the road with us,” said Lars Ulrich, during an interview with USA Today.
Kirk Hammett chipped in, adding, "It is kind of weird to know that people are going to have an experience that is going to be similar to my own experience playing and performing music. It's going to open people up maybe to the prospect of taking the whole thing one step further and actually picking up an instrument. We might be rearing an entire culture of future musicians. That prospect is just super-cool."
Guitar Hero Metallica is due for release in 2009.

Now maybe heavy metal, speed metal, thrash, death metal, grind and all subgenres of heavy metal will get the respect is so deserves. with this happening, this is awesome. speed metal getting into the hands of kids and adults alike, that's cool. i have a younger friend and he said he wouldn't have known about megadeth if it wasn't for GH. good job, guys!! keep the metal coming.

this is must buy for me. I don't listen Metallica too much but I always wanted something heavier in Guitar Hero. and I agree with @1. It would be great to see some death metal.

I've been done with metallica since the black album released. Stuff from the first 4 studio releases & GDRR would be perfect. A Pantera GH, on the other hand. . .

@ 2, never, Harmonix/MTV lost the deal with Metallica, hence why you cant import Enter Sandman for RB 2
