When Metallica releases its new album, Death Magnetic
, in September, fans will be able to do more than thrash their heads to it – they'll be able to play their fake Gibsons right along with it.
According to nme.com
, the band will release the album on the video game Guitar Hero
, as well as in stores.
And hardcore fans may have something else to look forward to: Lars and the guys reportedly may release a special Metallica-only edition of the game next year.
In related news, Guns N Roses, will also release their new track, "Shackler's Revenge" on Guitar Hero
's competition, Rock Band II
, the same month.
