New Metallica album for GH3 on Friday

Same day as shops, plus exclusive tracks.

"Death Magnetic", the upcoming ninth studio album by Metallica, will launch simultaneously in Guitar Hero III and in shops this Friday.

Better still, the band has recorded two exclusive versions of single "Suicide & Redemption" for the game, each with extended guitar solos to panic along to.

Even better still, the entire "Death Magnetic" album will be forward-compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour, which launches this October.

That makes the 1440 Microsoft Points (GBP 12.20 / EUR 17.80) or USD 17.99 (Euro TBC) asking price rather more attractive.

The other tracks on the album are "That Was Just Your Life", "The End of the Line", "Broken, Beat & Scared", "The Day That Never Comes", "All Nightmare Long", "Cyanide", "The Unforgiven III", "The Judas Kiss", "My Apocalypse".
