Guitar Hero: Metallica

Monday, December 15, 2008| by Will Chen

Recently, Metallica was the talk of the boards as many found the Guitar Hero version of their latest release Death Magnetic to be aurally superior to the full release which has been criticized as being abusively over compressed. The band also received a fair amount of internet publicity regarding the "And Justice for Jason" guitar hero remixes which included the missing bass tracks from the tracks Blackened and ...And Justice for All. Come first quarter 2009, fans will have a shot at a large portion of the band's catalog as Activision releases Guitar Hero: Metallica.

Activision initially confirmed the release in an SEC filing in late May and today USA Today published exclusive photos from the new title along with an interview with lead designer Alan Flores, Lars Ulrich, and Kirk Hammett which confirms the release date is drawing near.
