Original Story: The entirety of Metallica's new studio album "Death Magnetic" will be available this Friday, September 12, as downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Neversoft's Guitar Hero 3, publisher Activision announced today.
Priced at 1440 Microsoft Points ($18), the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace download will also pack two Guitar Hero-exclusive versions of "Suicide & Redemption" and will be forward-compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour, due out this October.
In addition to being the first full downloadable album for Guitar Hero--full albums have been available in rival series Rock Band since spring--"Death Magnetic" is the first time an album has simultaneously debuted in a game and in stores.
The Death Magnetic track list is as follows:
- That Was Just Your Life
- The End of the Line
- Broken, Beat & Scarred
- The Day That Never Comes
- All Nightmare Long
- The Unforgiven III
- The Judas Kiss
- Suicide & Redemption (Extended Solo Ver. 1)
- Suicide & Redemption (Extended Solo Ver. 2)
- My Apocalypse
Since Suicide & Redemption is included on the actual cd i would guess that one of these exclusive tracks is the one that is on the cd, be it version 1 or 2. Who knows though i guess there could be 3 versions of the song.
Yeah, I'm looking into it.
According to Metallica.com one features a solo by Kirk and one by James. Although that doesn't make clear if one of those is the album version.
