Rock Band Track Pack: Metal features 20 songs with both released and previously unreleased Rock Band DLC in disc form (though all was offered later on). You DO NOT need another Rock Band game to play, it is a stand-alone game. Better yet, it offers a separate 12 achievements and 250 gamerscore. If you will need to be resourceful and have some friends in order to get all of them.
Step #1- Solo Tour
It is suggested to play on Easy as a Vocalist, as you will have to eventually anyways to 5-star "Red Devil". Ideally, you would want to get these tasks done during this Vocal Tour:
Step #2- Band Tour
Now this could be tricky. You could do a bunch of band oriented achievements if you have all 4 people and they are good. This is a variable that will be different from player to player. Here's a rundown of what you need to do as a band:
Step #3- Score Duels and Quickplay
There is one song you are required to do in a Score Duel, and another in which it would help immensely:
Two other tasks not covered in the roadmap that you will likely complete now in Quickplay:
Now just do anything you had to skip in Steps 1+2.
[x360a would like to thank litepink for this road map]
|Complete "Killed by Death" on Expert without a band member failing||(1)|
|Two or more people, two or more instruments, all on Expert. No tricks here, pick your best instrument and complete the song on Expert.|
|The Fifth Circle||20|
|5-star "Red Devil" as a Vocalist in Solo Tour|
|This is the only achievement which REQUIRES you to play a particular instrument in the Solo Tour. Therefore, the quickest way to get this and "Trinity" would be to play your Solo Tour as a Vocalist. Choose Easy difficulty.|
|Master of Master of the Universe||15|
|5 star "Master of the Universe" with any instrument on Expert|
|Play on your best instrument. You can go for this with a friend if you're working on your Band Tour, otherwise go for it on your own.|
|Complete "Transmaniacon MC" as a full band, with all band members on Hard or Expert|
|All four instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals. This will also require three other people who are capable of playing well enough on Hard. Don't get fancy with your score, just save your friends if needed (or have them save you). Getting to the end is all that matters.|
|Play "Screaming for Vengeance" in a Score Duel|
|This requires two of the same instrument to complete. Finish the song regardless of score or result to unlock.|
|Hit 100% as a Bassist on "Closer," up-strums only|
|Play on Easy obviously. If you are accustomed to down-strums, you can flip your handedness, and play looking into a mirror. Although you will be strumming down, they will register as up, and the notes will appear normally in the mirror.|
|In the Moment||30|
|Score 100% as a Vocalist playing "Forever"|
|This comes down to skill as no tips can be given for vocal talent. Play on Easy and try humming if singing doesn't work for you.|
|4s and 5s||10|
|Get 4 stars or better playing "3s and 7s" with a full band|
|This one requires the use of all four instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Vocals. It also requires 3 other people locally. There is no Xbox Live support so you are dependent on others to play with you and pass the song. Having all the equipment and gathering 3 others will be the main challenge here, as you can play the song on Easy.|
|Finish "Thrasher" as an Expert Drummer||(1)|
|There are few methods of doing this. The first involves the obvious, passing the song in Quick Play or Solo Tour. Really comes down to skill, coordination, and practice, you're on your own.|
The easiest method is if you have two sets of drums (Guitar Hero ones work too, remember). Play this song in a Score Duel as you can't fail in this competitive game mode. No matter the score or result, you technically are "finishing" the song.
Another involves playing in a band. Have the main profile as the Expert Drummer while the others play on Easy to help bail you out should you fail.
Yet another, is playing the song by yourself, but split up the responsibilities between friends (have some help you with the kick pedal, half the pads, etc.)
|Resign Your Souls to Metal||15|
|Complete Band Tour on Medium difficulty or greater|
|This requires at least two people, and instruments to accompany each one of them. Band Tour consists of the complete track list of 20 songs.|
|Play "D.O.A.", "Laid to Rest," and "Hair of the Dog" in Solo Tour|
|While difficulty or instrument doesn't matter, you can't mix and match instruments. Must do all three songs, in one single instrument's tour.|
|Enter the Gates||30|
|5-Star "Blinded by Fear" on any instrument... with your eyes closed||(4)|
|Before panicking about having to 5-star the song with a blindfold on or something, you can relax. They are simply added some humor to the achievement description. Play with your favorite instrument on Easy...with your eyes open if you want.|
