Metallica's 'Death Magnetic' album rips up GHIII

Available today for 1440 Microsoft points (or a CD purchase) is new Metallica "Death Magnetic" DLC for Guitar Hero III which we're being told is both "deadly" and "magnetic". Who knew? For your 1440 points you'll get the entire album which is comprised of eleven tracks including two versions of the song"Suicide & Redemption".

Make your way to the Xbox Live Marketplace to grab the musical DLC goods or wait for it to release as Rock Band DLC. Wait a sec ... that probably isn't going to happen. Metallica fans, you'll just have to settle with GHIII.

Get 11 free GHIII Metallica tracks with CD pre-order

Best Buy has a rather enjoyable Guitar Hero III offer where, with a successful pre-order of Metallica's upcoming Death Magnet album, you'll receive eleven GHIII tracks. DLC tracks that we presume come from the album itself. There are three different flavors of the album to pre-order that range from $10 to $30 that'll get you the free songs (while supplies last). Metallica fans, it's time to go shopping.

GHIII to get not so new Interscope DLC this Thur

Good old Acti just announced brand newish downloadable content for Guitar Hero III that's scheduled to hit the XBLM sometime tomorrow. The new DLC is called the "Interscope Track Pack" which we're labeling as "newish" DLC only because the three tracks were previously made available to those who purchased the Guitar Hero III album. Now, come this Thursday, the three GHIII tracks by Flyleaf, AFI and Marilyn Manson can be purchased for presumably 500 Microsoft points. Presumably, because that's what all the other GHIII track packs sell for and no pricing details have been announced for this latest track pack. Press release after the break, enjoy.
  • "Tina" by Flyleaf
  • "Carcinogen Crush" by AFI
  • "Putting Holes in Happiness (Nick Zinner Remix)" by Marilyn Manson

GHIII Dragonforce DLC finds its way through the fire and flames this August

According to a post over Roadrunner Records' official website, the label which Dragonforce is currently signed under, there's brand new Dragonforce downloadable content planned for release to Guitar Hero III that will be making its way to the XBLM on Thursday, August 21st. The Dragonforce tracks to be included in the DLC track pack will be two classic songs from their Inhuman Rampage album "Operation Ground and Pound" and "Revolution Deathsquad" as well as "Heroes Of Our Time" which is the first single from their new Ultra Beatdown album. Get ready kids. You have less than a month to build up your strumming muscles for the torturous strumming onslaught that is Dragonforce.

Guitar Hero III Virtuoso tracks now available

Available for a 500 Microsoft point purchase off the Xbox Live Marketplace is a brand new and oh so challenging Guitar Hero III Virtuoso Track Pack comprised of three songs. The three tracks included are "Surfing with the Alien" by Joe Satriani, "For the Love of God" by Steve Vai and "Soothsayer" by Buckethead. And early word on the street is that you'll have to be a darn good Guitar Hero virtuoso to master the crazy difficult riffs, hammer ons, pull offs and other guitar skills. Good luck with that.

The Guitar Hero / Rock Band guitar matrix v2.0!

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith recently released and we have Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band 2 to look forward to later this year, meaning we're getting a bunch of brand new guitar peripherals. Take into account the older guitars from Guitar Hero II and III as well as the original Rock Band and you're left with a confusing instrument compatibility mess. Our head hurts just thinking about it. But team Joystiq has done their best to make sure you understand which guitar peripherals work with which games, breaking down the information into a convenient Guitar Hero / Rock Band guitar compatibility matrix (version 2.0). Make the jump to view the complete matrix of guitar compatibility and be in complete peripheral compatibility awe and, possibly, complete compatibility disgust.

Fresh and free RSV2 and GHIII DLC downloads

It's a free Xbox Live Marketplace download day, as we get not one but TWO free chuncks of downloadable content goodness. One being free Rainbow Six Vegas 2 DLC, the other being free Guitar Hero III DLC. All free, free, free!

The RSV2 "Gift Pack DLC" (no longer called the "Fan Pack") includes a set of three re-releases of the multiplayer maps Calypso Casino, Murdertown and CQB Training but now re-lit for a "darker" gaming experience. Today's free GHIII DLC is the July Fourth inspired "Top Gun Anthem" track of which we don't believe Tom Cruise will make an appearance in or would even support. Meh. Go grab your free XBLM downloads, kids, because ... you know ... they're free!

GHIII's July 4th surpise: Free 'Top Gun' DLC!

Continuing their downloadable content release frenzy, Guitar Hero III will be releasing another free download this Thursday, July 3rd, just in time to celebrate the Fourth of July.

This Thursday, available as free download off the Xbox Live Marketplace will be the "Top Gun Anthem" as GHIII downloadable content. An iconic 1980's anthem that single handily changed the world. No really, it changed the world! Though, we'll be the first to admit it is a bit repetitive and long, but we can't help but be uber excited to celebrate our Fourth of July festivities with a tribute to our Tom Cruise Maverick. Fly on Maverick, fly on!

Rock out to WoW, free GHIII DLC now available

Yesterday, we told you about World of Warcraft's "I am Murloc" track making its way to Guitar Hero III as downloadable content. Well, we just wanted to inform you that today the 14MB track became available for download off the XBLM and can be downloaded for FREE! Free WoW themed Guitar Hero DLC, what could be better? What's that? Free WoW themed Rock Band DLC you say? Come on now, be fair and don't be that guy. For shame.

Viva la vida! Coldplay GHIII DLC is now available

A reminder for those who, with the aid of Guitar Hero III, were looking forward to jamming out to Coldplay this week, your downloadable content is now available. The GHIII Coldplay Track Pack, featuring the songs "Violet Hill", "Yellow" and "God Put A Smile Upon Your Face", is now ready for your 500 Microsoft point purchase off the XBLM. So, this being a reminder, you can go and get your Coldplay DLC purchase on if you so choose. Also, seeing that this is probably going to be our last post talking about Coldplay, we feel the need to sneak in their Apple iTunes commercial. We thoroughly enjoy the purple and blue smoke that emits from the band as they play ... it's freakin' b-e-a-utiful!

Coldplay DLC takes over GHIII next Thursday

Just as Entertainment Weekly promised, Activision recently sent word that music from Coldplay, including a track from their latest album Viva la Vida, will be making its way to the XBLM as Guitar Hero III downloadable content next Thursday, June 19th. The Coldplay DLC pack will consist of three tracks including their latest single "Violet Hill", their first ever hit "Yellow" and the single "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face". Even though Acti didn't make any mention of pricing, we expect you'll be able to grab this three pack for the standard GHIII DLC going rate of 500 Microsoft points. Official press release posted after the break.

Guitar Hero III releases Isle of Wight DLC

The second of five sets of June's promised Guitar Hero III DLC just released today, bringing with it music from the Isle of Wight to a living room (or den) near you. Available for 500 Microsoft points off the XBLM is the new GHIII Isle of Wight Track Pack featuring the musical tracks "Problems" by The Sex Pistols, "Shoot the Runner" by Kasabian and "I Predict a Riot" by Kaiser Chiefs. And because we loved it so much last time, embedded above is an encore presentation of Kasabian's "Shoot the Runner" video. It's almost like a violent gun filled iPod commercial, no?

Video: GHIII 100% perfect Dragonforce's 'TTFAF'

Here it is! It really happened! One accomplishment that we never thought we'd see get accomplished has been, well ... accomplished. Guitar Hero III's overly long "Through the Fire and Flames" track by Dragonforce has recently been played 100% perfect on expert difficulty with video proof to boot. Youtube account holder iamchris4life uploaded his nearly cyborg-like GHIII strumming performance and, what more can be said? It's "Through the Fire and Flames" played perfectly on expert. Just watch and be amazed.

Also, towards the end of this eight minute video there is some NSFW celebratory "holy sh*t" remarks and f-bombs, but really, can you blame him? Celebrate however you want iamchris4life, you crazy good GHIII expert you.

[Thanks, to everyone who sent this in]

Acti set to release five GHIII DLC packs in June

Piggybacking today's announcement of the new Guitar Hero III Motorhead DLC, Activision just sent word that they're planning to release five sets of GHIII DLC during the month of June with today's Motorhead Track Pack being the first.

They're keeping the lid firmly sealed regarding three of the five track packs, but did reveal that the second set of DLC will release next Thursday, June 12th and include music inspired by the Isle of Wight festival including "Shoot the Runner" by Kasabian (amazing video above), "I Predict a Riot" by Kaiser Chief and a freshly recorded version of "Anarchy in the U.K." "Problems" by The Sex Pistols. We expect to hear more about June's other three GHIII track packs in the weeks to come, but for now you can enjoy Motorhead and look forward to Isle of Wight inspired music next Thursday. Full press release after the break.
