Clever people with eyes have uncovered evidence that Metallica will be the next band to get its very own Guitar Hero game.

Buried deep in an Activision SEC filing was confirmation of its existence, according to GameSpot, alongside a promise it would be out before the end of March next year.

Metallica will follow in the footsteps of Aerosmith, which gives its Guitar Hero solo performance sometime next month.

Presumably the format will be much the same; play as the band from grass roots to stadiums, tackling most of the back catalogue as well as other songs that inspired Metallica along the way.

Metallica was formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich, who incidentally went on to lead the publicised fight against Napster at the turn of the century.
