From the rockband.com forums

Hey Rockers,

Here's your weekly fixing of DLC for August 12th, 2008. It's a rip roarin' Roadrunner 6 Pack, filled to the brim with metal mayhem. The pack will be 480 MSP (aka $5.99) and single tracks will be 80 MSP (aka $0.99) for the first month. From that point on the pack will be 800 MSP (aka $9.99) and the single tracks will become 160 MSP (aka $1.99). GET STOKED!

Tracks will be out on Tuesday on Xbox Marketplace and Thursday on the Playstation Store.

TRACKS:
Airbourne – Runnin’ Wild - 80 MSP - $0.99

DevilDriver – Clouds Over California - 80 MSP - $0.99

Dream Theater – Constant Motion - 80 MSP - $0.99

Killswitch Engage – My Curse - 80 MSP - $0.99

Machine Head – Aesthetics Of Hate - 80 MSP - $0.99

Megadeth – Sleepwalker - 80 MSP - $0.99

All tracks are masters.

Also, there was a nice helping of new Rock Band 2 info (Including one achievement, I think!) at the Rock Band forums. I posted that down in the RB2 forums, but thought I'd mention it here since I know I often forget the RB2 forums are there and as such, don't check them. ^^

see this is what i'm wounding is when will this song hit,

In an interview with the creators of the music video game Rock Band in October 2007, it was stated that Metallica had given the rights to MTV Games, the game's publisher, to have the first single off Death Magnetic available for playability on the game before the album's release.[2] On August 1, 2008, that first single was ultimately revealed to be "The Day That Never Comes."

Dont know aout this weeks Songs but i will have to take a look at them

That'll silence the metalheads that have been complaining on every Rock Band forum I've gone to.:p

No kidding... n these are some seriously heavy songs. lol

Although Rock Band 2 seems to have a lot more heavy metal than the first.... so that should quiet them even more.

Awesome selection of songs. I'm not sure why they are a pack though because the price still adds up the same if you buy them on there own. So at least you can by the ones you want without losing out.

W00t! DT FTW!! I'll get them all, but Constant Motion is the one I'll play most. Portnoy is right up there with Peart as one of my personal drum heroes.

Now if I just had a 360 to play. :( May have to ninja mine back from Sharon.

Not to be mean but did you guys read the original post? :confused:

This DLC I cannot wait for, mainly the Megadeth and Dream Theater portion though I'm sure the rest will be great. My Curse, ehh, just for guitar I wasn't crazy about the GH3 chart, which didn't seem to be overcharted.

If anyone wants to play these in a full band, I will be playing them first day out and will play guitar or bass.

Oh hell yea on of the best songs by a good band and challenging on all parts. But, can we get this topic back on talking about 8/12 DLC instead of 8/5 DLC?

^^ give it time, if this one some sells well, then there is hope for future songs.


first impressions on two songs.

Killswitch Expert guitar: if you can alt strum while moving your left hand at the same time then this song will be a piece of cake, if you cant then get ready to have two tired wrists. the guitarists pretty much picks all of the verses so its a tough song.

dream theater...well shocking its impossible! lol. its in the impossible tier for a reason. the start of the song is basically like kilswitch, a lot of fast picking and if u can alt-strum and move ur left hand ur fine. after the intro it moves into something like BYOB and thats where i failed. have fun everyone :D

All of the songs this week have a major aversion to hammer ons (save for a couple of solos!) so there's lots of alt strumming to go around. :)

I can't get the hang of alt strumming though, so all of these songs are very difficult for me. I've passed all but two so far, and unfortunately don't have a whole lot of fun with them since I just wind up with two very achy wrists at the end. No problem with the songs themselves though.

Don't get me wrong, I can totally see why this is a fun pack, especially for people looking for more difficult songs, it's just so difficult as to not be terribly fun for me. Though, perhaps, dropping to hard may make the songs more passable and as such more fun. I'll try that later. :)

I was just going to let everyone know that all of these songs are very awesome on X drums.

Runnin Wild is the easiest of the bunch, but it's fast and changes up enough to keep it interesting.

My Curse is probably the easiest after that. It's a very fun song to play with a good amount of bass pedal (pretty much all of these do) and some cool and interesting rhythms.

The Devildriver song is I think the most exhausting song to play in the game. This song is like one long crazy driving bass pedal. It just doesn't stop. It's not terribly difficult (Tier 7, I think?), it's so just fast and plentiful on the bass that it gets tiring very quickly.

Megadeth's Sleepwalker is a pretty fun song with a very tricky beat. I'm not even sure how I beat it honestly. Just looking at the chart I didn't seem to register it. I played it almost on reflex. It was a weird rhythm that just seemed to make sense. Lots of bass on this one too. Although it's a Tier 9, I didn't think it was as difficult as Dream Theater. Speaking of which...

The Dream Theater song is completely awesome to play. I failed the first time through on the crazy blast beat section toward the end but beat after playing it again. Pretty much this entire song is full of constantly changing, really interesting and unique rhythms with various time signatures alternating. The drum solo that's going on during the guitar solo is definitely one I will be enjoying trying to get down for some time to come.

Aesthetics of Hate is a ridiculously difficult song (think Blinded By Fear, but slightly slower and more varied). I personally didn't enjoy this just because I can't get more than 9% through it. It's a good song though.
