Metallica can't play Guitar Hero, make live archive available

Metallica has announced that a version of its new album Death Magnetic will be available to download for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. The Guitar Hero version becomes available this Friday, allowing fans to play along to some huge James Hetfield/Kirk Hammett riffs. But the band members have admitted that their attempts to play Guitar Hero have been less than successful. “We’re all bad,” says bassist Rob Trujillo. “It’s a different animal playing that game.”

Meanwhile, the new internet friendly Metallica has made 20 live albums available to download on its website. The albums are free and are culled from a 21-year period between 1982 and 2003. The albums are all available on MP3 and are encoded at a low 192 kbps bitrate. You need to register with the Metallica Live site here to get your hands on these rare goodies. [NME]

Like I said on youtube ha ha ha now they want to give away stuff for free lol


I downloaded the show from Austin in '89 - the audio quality is terrible for 192k. The files sound like they're encoded to no more than 96k. But, hey, that's why they're free.

I'm not an audiophile, but if it sounds like it was encoded at 96K that kinda sucks. Then again it is free like you said.
