Metallica’s ‘Death Magnetic’ coming to Guitar Hero III and World Tour

death magnetic world tour

Today, Metallica announced on their official Web site that their upcoming album, Death Magnetic , will be available for download on Guitar Hero III the day it debuts in stores. If only being able to act like a guitarist is not enough to suit your fancy, don’t worry. Death Magnetic will also be available on Guitar Hero World Tour this fall.

I always wanted an opportunity to play the drums like Lars, or groan like Hetfield. I wonder if this upcoming album will be able to match the inspiring records of old. Hopefully, we won’t be bothered with another “St. Anger.” What the hell was with Lars’ drum kit on that CD anyway? It sounded like he had a cat tethered across the snare.

According to GuitarHeroNews , the album is set to drop this September. No price point or exact date has been pinpointed as of yet. What do you guys think of this move? I always visualized playing some of Metallica’s older stuff, like what has been previously offered — not necessarily a brand new album. Do you think this will open doors to the entire Metallica library?

AUDIO-TECHNICA KEEPS METALLICA ROCKING ON THE BAND’S DEATH MAGNETIC WORLD TOUR

“Big Mick” Hughes’ tenure as front-of-house (FOH) engineer for legendary heavy metal phenomenon Metallica is almost as long as the band’s existence. “This is my 25th year. I was 25 or 26 when I started with the guys, and I’m going on 51 in a minute,” recalls Hughes. Although the band has evolved and grown, a key to its longevity is unarguably its constant dedication to hard-rocking heavy metal, showcased brilliantly on the 2008 smash album Death Magnetic (Warner Bros.). Another constant for the band has been Hughes’ selection of Audio-Technica as the microphones of choice for Metallica’s live stage setup, the most recent incarnation of which is crisscrossing the United States, soon to be followed by Europe, as the Death Magnetic World Tour. “I’ve been using Audio-Technica for years, because of the way A-T mics sound. I can’t really imagine using anything else,” Hughes commented. “They sound great and have tremendous reliability. I can’t remember the last time we actually changed a microphone because it was bad. That just doesn’t happen, which is really pretty remarkable.” Hughes has selected a wide variety of A-T mics for the current tour, including the ATM350 Cardioid Condenser Clip-on Microphone for toms and overheads, AE2500 Dual-element Cardioid Instrument Microphone for guitar cabinets, wired and wireless versions of the AE5400 Cardioid Condenser Handheld Microphone for vocals, ATM650 Hypercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone for snare and dual AT 4050 Multi-pattern Condenser Microphones in a stereo configuration on guitar cabinets. Hughes points out how the band’s unique stage setup requires a number of dependable vocal mic units, a role more than fulfilled by the AE5400. “We’re in the round, so there are eight vocal positions around the stage, all wired AE5400’s. And then we have a few wireless 5400’s that we drop in and out for different songs, depending on if they’re playing acoustic guitars or something like that. And the wired and wireless all sound exactly the same, making the vocal mix, which I do in subgroups, relatively simple and straightforward for me.” Hughes is likewise vocal in his praise of Audio-Technica’s Dual-element AE2500: “The AE2500 is absolutely stunning on guitar cabinets. When I first tried the 2500, I listened to each element individually and said that’s not very big. But when I combined the two (dynamic and condenser), it’s absolutely crushing. The summation of the two is so much more than the individual elements — it’s bizarre. I use the 2500 with flat EQ and only high and low pass filters employed. It’s a very, very big sound. We’ve used the 2500 on cabs for a long time — you just know what works, and why change a winning combination?” Celebrating over 45 years of audio excellence worldwide, Audio-Technica is a leading innovator in transducer technology, renowned for the design and manufacture of microphones, wireless microphones, headphones, mixers, and electronics for the audio industry. —For more information on the complete range of Audio-Technica products, contact Karen Emerson, Audio-Technica U.S., Inc., 1221 Commerce Drive, Stow, OH 44224.

METALLICA's Final Death Magnetic World Tour Stats Available

November 21, 2010, 13 years ago

hot flashes news metallica

METALLICA's World Magnetic Tour, in support of the group's ninth studio album, Death Magnetic, which was released in September 2008 - officially kicked off in October 2008 in Glendale, AZ. By September 2010, the tour had reached North America, Europe, South America, Asia and Oceania. The tour culminated with three dates in Melbourne, Australia in late November 2010.

Metallica have issued the following tour summary:

According to a new Billboard Cover Story , Metallica is scheduled to play Brazil's Rock in Rio festival next September, and writing for the follow-up to Death Magnetic should begin sometime in the first half of the year. The other night in Adelaide, Australia, the band members even threw around some new riffs in the tuning room.

Ulrich says Metallica is nearing the fulfillment of its current record deals all over the world, which means the band has some "interesting decisions to make" about how (and with whom) it will sell its music in the future. He's not worried, though. "Given the slow pace at which we write albums," he says with a laugh, "it's not something we'll have to deal with any time soon."

Lars Ulrich Says Metallica Will Tour “Death Magnetic” Through 2010

By Andy Greene

Andy Greene

Metallica ‘s massive world tour behind Death Magnetic is still in its infancy, but Lars Ulrich has visions of it lasting beyond next year. “We’re booked up through August of next year, and right now we’re sort of laying out Fall of ’09 and the Spring of ’10,” he says. “We’re waiting for a few other countries to be actually formalized as nations so we can be the first band in. We’re also waiting for the polar caps to stabilize so we can go play there. There’s talk about some other planets too.” As of now the band is on planet earth, playing American arenas for the first time in four years. “It’s great to be back indoors,” says Ulrich. “We’re right in the thick of it in the middle of the arena. It completely exposes every nuance and that adds a real tone of vitality and excitement.” The setlist is heavy on 1980s classics like “Master of Puppets” and “One” as well as about five songs from Death Magnetic . The setlist changes from night to night, but they always end with 1983’s “Seek And Destroy.” “We’ve probably ended our last 200 shows with that song,” says Ulrich. “The 17 or 18 songs before that get mixed up every night, to the point of ridiculousness. So having a slight bit of predictability at the end gives people the chance star thinking about putting their coats on and remembering what fucking parking lot they were in.”

Metallica’s Death Magnetic: how the kings of metal reclaimed their throne

After a decade of controversy and near-implosion, Metallica seriously needed to right the ship. With Death Magnetic, they did just that

death magnetic world tour

Will the real Metallica please stand up? Let’s be honest. That’s the question burning on everyone’s lips in 2008. 

Drummer Lars Ulrich sidles up to us wearing a vintage Budgie T-shirt and sipping a giant strawberry milkshake. He seems to have been reading our thoughts.

“I was talking to my friend [ Machine Head frontman] Robb Flynn the other day and he said something that really surprised me,” he reveals. “He had a friend who wanted to interview me. ‘He thinks you’re an unapproachable rock monster,’ Robb told me. Well, I’ll take an hour out of my day to do an interview with anyone who thinks I’m a rock monster. It just isn’t true. Most people who come into contact with Metallica say, ‘You guys are so normal and nice.’ Of course we are! We’re just a friendly neighbourhood rock band.”

Hang on a minute. A friendly neighbourhood rock band? Is this the same squabbling, dysfunctional bunch who bared their souls in the movie Some Kind Of Monster ?

Some Kind Of Monster was, of course, a penetrating, and at times acutely painful, insight into the Metallica psyche. The cringeworthy bickering between Lars and James Hetfield caused many viewers to hide beneath their cinema seats and stuff popcorn into their ears. The thrash combo’s last studio album, the fiercely criticised St Anger , is likely something they – and indeed their fans – would rather forget. As everyone witnessed in the documentary, recording the tracks in tandem with producer Bob Rock was like getting blood out of a stone. Indeed the album itself had the aural dynamics of an inanimate object.

But that was 2004 – a lifetime ago in the fast-moving, modern-day rock’n’roll world. Such a warts-and-all exposé would have destroyed many a band’s career. But not Metallica’s. They have steadily rehabilitated themselves on the live circuit since then, blasting out greatest hits sets that have largely ignored St Anger and its preceding albums, Load and Reload . They’ve put their demons behind them and recaptured their mystique. Against the odds, Metallica remain the world’s biggest heavy metal band.

The secrecy behind their new album, Death Magnetic , has been tighter than Lars Ulrich’s old spandex pants. Listening sessions have been held under armed guard, the select few lucky enough to get close to it strip-searched and forced to repeat the mantra “I have not heard Death Magnetic, I know nothing of Death Magnetic”… OK that’s an exaggeration. But only a small one. 

Regardless, an intrepid Metal Hammer find ourselves on board a packed double-decker inter-city train, hurtling across the Flemish countryside, cutting a swathe through lush fields under sparkling skies. Our destination is the village of Kiewit (pronounced ‘key-wit’) where the 23rd annual Pukkelpop festival is taking place. As we traipse around trying to find the festival’s artists’ entrance, the local populace is mowing lawns, trimming hedges and washing cars. It’s a picture of suburban idyll. Perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised. That’s Belgium for you. After all, only a nation that doesn’t take itself seriously would promote a urinating boy as a national icon.

We ensconce ourselves backstage to await our chat with Metallica – the headline attraction this balmy Friday night. The band arrive just after 7pm and the previously sedate VIP area becomes a throng of confusion. Unfazed, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo breeze into their private cabin without so much as a by your leave. Untouchable, unapproachable, keeping all and sundry at arm’s length. Friendly neighbourhood rock band our arse…

But it’s true. Get to the core of Metallica – or ‘unpeel the onion’ as Phil Towle, their so-called performance-enhancing coach in Some Mind Of Monster , put it – and you’ll find Lars wasn’t talkin’ out of his, er, ars’.

In actual fact, Metallica are pretty much unchanged from when this writer first met them more than 20 years ago. Well, as unchanged as a band can be who have sold millions of albums and earned millions of dollars in the intervening years. It doesn’t seem so long ago when Metallica were flailing around in the fledgling thrash-metal moshpit, blood under their fingernails, duking it out with rivals Slayer , Anthrax , Megadeth , Testament , Exodus … 

Nevertheless, the suspicion lingers that Metallica 2008 – freshly focused, demons expunged, hugs all round, etc, etc – are intent on distancing themselves from ‘the heavy metal scene’.

In the build-up to the release of ninth album, Death Magnetic , Metallica appeared on BBC2’s posh and very arty The Culture Show . Shortly afterward they conducted an interview with a dad-rock music mag that concentrated less on their music and more on their activities in London’s trendy Met Bar. Metallica were criticised for staying in different hotels – even in different countries – during their latest tour of summer festivals. Lars was a notable target, being portrayed in the story as a ‘European sophisticate’ with a penchant for vintage champagne and private planes.

“Me, a European sophisticate?” Lars laughs. “If I am that doesn’t say too much about the rest of them.”

“Lars’s millions? Ha ha!” chortles James Hetfield, still a big presence but a much mellower person than when this writer last met him. “I really don’t think about it. We’re not focused on questions like, ‘What fanbase are you going for?’ There might be other people in the Metallica machine who are, but I’m certainly not. We’re going to be ourselves wherever we go.”

After this interview James is scheduled to talk to a Dutch publication called Humo. The powers-that-be have decided not to tell him the name of the mag. Just in case.

Lars continues: “There always has to be a story about James – the hotdog-eating, red-blooded American conservative – against me, the diminutive, motormouth, art-collecting Dane. It’s fine. The main difference between now and back in the day is that now it’s more comical, whereas 10 years ago it used to wind you up a little bit.”

  • “Whose f**king idea was this?”: how Metallica’s made the spectacular S&M2
  • The Top 10 best Metallica riffs

“No,” James says firmly when we ask if he ever regrets making Some Kind Of Monster . “That movie was the best mirror I’ve ever had. There were a lot of times where I saw myself as I did not want to see myself. Uh oh – there’s the brat slamming the door when he didn’t get his own way; there’s the 10-year-old kid with abandonment issues or whatever…

“Not to completely play Freud but a lot of it had to do with us not knowing ourselves. We’ve grown up in a rock’n’roll environment, and that’s a difficult situation for anyone to grow up in.”

So why foist Some Kind Of Monster on the public at large? Why not keep it for Metallica’s own private consumption?

“We thought it was important for us to show a human side,” James explains. “We were viewed as distant and unfeeling after the Napster thing, so it was important that we showed the world that we do have a human side. I’m sure there was also a part of it that felt like: ‘No one’s ever done this before, so let’s do it.’ The other part was possibly connecting with other bands that have gone through a similar struggle.”

With 10 kids between the four band members, Metallica are a family affair these days. Lars tells us how his priorities have changed. 

“The fights in my life are not with James Hetfield, the fights in my life are with my kids about learning to say fuckin’ please or finish their fuckin’ vegetables or get the fuck to bed on time. I can’t be all things to all people any more. I’m 44 years old and I have to take care of three beautiful kids and [then-partner] Connie and do my best to get on with James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo every day. Those are my responsibilities.”

Earlier, we referenced Metallica’s past as a key player in the burgeoning thrash-metal scene of the mid 80s. It’s a period they themselves were forced to revisit on Death Magnetic, under express instruction from their new producer, Rick Rubin .

“Rick kept telling us: ‘Think like you used to think in 1985. Approach it like you did in 1985. Listen to the same records you did in 1985.’ Everything was about transporting yourself back to 1985,” Lars divulges.

Rick, of course, was encouraging a back-to-basics approach. He wanted Metallica to simultaneously recapture the fire of their early days and dispel the painful memories of working with Bob Rock on St Anger .

“Without completely going silly and trying to relive the mid 80s, yes, I think we’ve gotten exactly what we were out to accomplish,” James states. “So far I’m liking Death Magnetic . A lot. There’s a few songs on there that I just can’t stop playing. Unforgiven III is one of those. I may be sappy, but I like the kinda epic-y ballad, you know? I fall for it every time.” 

“I think it was a little bit easier for me to cast my mind back to the past than it was for James,” Lars considers. “James still has one foot in some of the dark stuff he was carrying around. But he still speaks very fondly of the old days. There was a Metal Hammer thrash-metal special that came out recently with James on the cover, and we all sat on the plane reading it. Suddenly James went, ‘This is amazing, we should do a reunion of all the old Bay Area thrash bands.’ I thought: ‘Wow, he’s really feeling that.’

“So yes, James carries around this dark stuff but I always love it when the kid comes out again. Because that was the kid I first met and that was the guy I fell in love with. And when he shows up once in a while it’s so much fun.”

“Our new songs are built to be played live,” chips in guitarist Kirk Hammett, whose mild-mannered demeanour is in stark contrast to James Hetfield’s in-your-face presence. “I can just picture how great these songs are going to feel when we play them in front of an audience.”

Recording Death Magnetic was “a very, very cool experience,” Kirk adds. “There was hardly any fighting at all. Plus, it feels really good to play guitar solos again. People have been asking me, ‘Does this mean Kirk Hammett is back?’ I suppose that’s true in a way. During St Anger I was as busy as I’ve ever been in the studio but a lot of it was to do with trying to maintain the sanity of the band. If there were guitar solos on that album I would probably have been a nervous wreck doing them, because there wasn’t really much time or space to work on something equally as stressful.”

It seems unfair to denigrate Bob Rock too much, given that he helped propel Metallica into rock’s premier league – not to mention give them extra added mainstream appeal – with 1991’s   Black Album .

But relationships often turn sour over time, and by the time St Anger came around Metallica and Bob were falling out. Big time. The band’s mentor had turned into their nemesis.

“Increasingly over the last few projects with Bob, God bless him, every major task ended up as a compromise between me and James,” Lars sighs. “I think if you interviewed Bob right now he would tell you that he probably didn’t have any more to offer Metallica anyway.”

“St Anger was the near-death experience of Metallica,” James says matter-of-factly.

Rick Rubin – who first made an impact on the metal world by producing Slayer’s seminal Reign In Blood album in 1986 – is these days a much-fêted knob-twiddler, having worked with The Cult, Danzig, AC/DC, System Of A Down, Neil Diamond, Rage Against The Machine, Johnny Cash, Slipknot… Rick’s CV is as impressive as it is diverse.

“Rick Rubin is not a musician like Bob Rock is,” Lars explains. “Rick has absolutely no technical expertise whatsoever. He only just about knows how to text and send an email. What Rick does, he fits the classic phrase ‘A&R guy’. He’s a set of ears. He sits down, listens to your music and says, ‘That’s great, that could be better, that doesn’t work.’ What he doesn’t do is sit there and go: ‘Try F-sharp after G and one more dB at 10K.’”

“Working with Bob Rock and then Rick Rubin is about as black and white as you can get,” James expands. “Bob fully immerses himself into the project. Bob is involved in every note, every decision, every sound. He’s the first one to unlock the studio door and the last one to set the alarm as you leave. He has the schedule, he’s got the agenda for the day. He’s cracking the whip, yelling at Kirk, ‘You didn’t do your homework!’ He’s working with me on the vocals and the lyrics. He’s the referee when Lars and me start fighting, ha ha!

“Whereas Rick… he’s opposite. Very, very opposite. He doesn’t care about the arguments over which note sounds better. He doesn’t care about when we’re taking a lunch break. He doesn’t care about any of the… aesthetics. He just wants to hear a good song.”

The other major difference between St Anger and Death Magnetic is bassist Robert Trujillo. Bob Rock was responsible for the four-string sounds on St Anger, which undoubtedly contributed to the in-studio tensions. With Rob on board, the recording process got a whole lot easier.

“James, I feel, was very fragile when I first joined the band [in February 2003],” recalls Rob, who is part bassist, part Incredible Hulk. “He was just coming out of his whole trip, going through his transition from the old James to the new James. Now it’s like he’s got his Juju back and I feel that really shows in his dedication to this new album.”

Rob doesn’t look like the kind of person who would be easily intimidated by stroppy superstars.

“Correct. The thing about Metallica is, there’s a lot of creative energy. If there’s a problem – and it’s not so much of a problem, it’s more of a gift – it’s the fact that we’ve got so many ideas and riffs. James just tweaks the volume knob a little, adjusts his tone, and he strikes a couple of notes and chords, and he’s got a song. I’ve never seen anything like it. The amount of riffage that comes out of the amps in this band is ridiculous. So the creative spirit is alive and kicking and feels very viable. I feel that Death Magnetic is a launch pad for the future.”

Of course, if James and Lars ever started fighting again, Rob could very easily step in and separate them. He is, after all, a very, very, very big guy.

“I would try my best,” Rob smiles.

“Ha ha!” grins James. “Yeah, Rob could step in if he wanted to. That’s something that Lars probably feels good about. But when things go down it doesn’t matter about size or shape. When things snap, they snap. When Rob was a member of Suicidal Tendencies I watched him and [singer] Mike Muir on stage plenty of times. I used to think, ‘Holy shit, I wouldn’t want to get in an alley with them. They’re big, tough-looking dudes.’ But Rob is a sweetheart, he’s an amazing personality and his contribution is sitting in the backseat, giving a little direction here and there, but being completely willing to step up to any challenge.”

“[Former bassist] Jason Newsted gave a lot to this band but his personality got a little rough sometimes because he was so serious,” Lars explains. “Rob’s been in the band longer than Cliff [Burton, Metallica’s fondly remembered second bassist after Ron McGovney] and coming up to half as long as Jason. The word effortless is the word that always comes to mind. It’s the easiest way to describe Rob. As a personality he’s effortless; as a musician he’s effortless.”

  • The Top 10 Best Metallica 1990s Songs

To an outsider, the build-up to the release of Death Magnetic appears to have been planned with military precision. However, according to Lars, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

“Maybe in the metal world people look to us and think, ‘Those guys have got it together.’ But it’s not something we think about a lot ourselves. In terms of the way modern bands would like to operate, we all want to be like U2. Everybody has a perception that U2 is hands down the most together organisation.

“There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think this is amateur hour. We are so dorky and so many little details go wrong. We go: ‘D’oh! I bet that doesn’t happen to U2!’ U2 do everything properly and everybody else is just second-class on a professional level. I joke about it when I speak to our managers. I tell them, ‘I bet [U2 manager] Paul McGuinness makes sure that happens properly.’”

So far, Metallica have only played two new songs from Death Magnetic – Cyanide and lead single The Day That Never Comes – on their summer tour. But that’ll all change when they hit the road in the US in October to promote their new release.

“We’re going to be playing plenty more of the new stuff,” relishes Kirk. “The last thing I would want is for Metallica to go down the heritage-band route. That’s the fast track to stagnation. I like being creative; I like the challenge it puts across. I guess it’s a comfortable way to go, to become a heritage band, so to speak. It’s easy but I don’t know how much fun it can be at the end of the day. It would drive me crazy. I could never see us doing that. I see us going down the Rolling Stones route: still making albums, still touring when we’re 60. I don’t know what the setlist would be like then… please don’t ask.”

James concludes our interview in reflective mood. 

“Death Magnetic is Metallica’s ninth album, which I find unbelievable. Most bands hit their ninth record in maybe their 12th or 13th year of being together. We’ve been together 27 years. We’re slow. Metallica’s clock is very slow. Until we get on stage. Then it’s very fast!”

METALLICA in Paris Night 2: See setlist and videos from M72 Tour

Metallica 's M72 World Tour continued tonight (May 19th) in Paris, marking the band's second performance in the French capital and the third date of the massive run, which began in Amsterdam last month. For this tour, James, Kirk, Rob and Lars are playing each location twice, and have promised "no repeats" of the same setlist, so this evening's configuration of songs was significantly different than what fans heard in Amsterdam and at the first Paris show , just two days before.

Metallica opened the 16-song set with a bang in the form of Ride the Lightning' s "Creeping Death," followed by ...And Justice for All' s "Harvester of Sorrow." They then played Death Magnetic' s "Cyanide," marking the song's first appearance on the M72 tour, and first live performance since 2018.

In terms of new songs, three 72 Seasons cuts were played: "If Darkness Had a Son," "You Must Burn!" and the title track.

Check out footage from throughout the night above and below via YouTube, and check out the setlist courtesy of Setlist.fm .

DEATH TO ALL Announces May/June 2024 'The Scream Of Perseverance Tour' With CRYPTOPSY

DEATH TO ALL ( DTA ) — which features former members of DEATH celebrating the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner — will embark on "The Scream Of Perseverance Tour" in May.

The current lineup of DEATH TO ALL includes Gene Hoglan (also of DARK ANGEL and DETHKLOK ), Steve DiGiorgio ( TESTAMENT , CONTROL DENIED , SADUS ) on bass and Bobby Koelble on guitar. Max Phelps ( CYNIC ),who has been touring with DEATH TO ALL , is once again handling the vocal and second-guitar duties.

DEATH TO ALL is a unique opportunity for a new generation of metalheads to experience the genius of DEATH and Schuldiner first-hand.

Hoglan says: " DEATH TO ALL is really excited to be hitting the road on the 'The Scream of Perseverance Tour' with special guests CRYPTOPSY . The North American tour will bring three different, special and exciting shows encapsulating the two equally important eras of DEATH ."

"The Scream Of Perserverance Tour" features unique two-night stints in multiple cities, where the first night will be an old-school, brutal night featuring, in its entirety, the album which started the DEATH legacy, "Scream Bloody Gore" , as well as classic tunes from "Leprosy" and "Spiritual Healing" . The second night will feature the finishing touch in DEATH 's history, "The Sound Of Perseverance" , as well as timeless classics from the technical and more melodic era of DEATH , "Human" , "Individual Thought Patterns" and "Symbolic" . Also, in certain cities, the sets will be "From First To Last", where DEATH TO ALL play the mightiest bangers from every DEATH album.

Hoglan adds: "We’ll be joined by our good friends, the legendary CRYPTOPSY , who have some special plans of their own for this tour.

" DEATH TO ALL is extremely pleased to be bringing these special nights to the fans of the one and only Chuck Schuldiner ... as only DEATH TO ALL can...his entire DEATH legacy! As Chuck liked to say, 'let the Metal flow.' You'll want to catch every night possible."

CRYPTOPSY shares: " CRYPTOPSY is very much looking forward to sharing the stage with the iconic and symbolic DEATH TO ALL band! Since the tour will be hitting major U.S. markets two nights back to back, we plan on giving the fans two unique setlists. One that consists of classic old-school first-generation CRYPTOPSY tracks and a second that'll focus more on the newer generation.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate DEATH 's legacy alongside DEATH TO ALL . We welcome you all to bear witness to this epic tour!"

"The Scream Of Perseverance Tour" dates:

*** "From First To Last" — the greatest classics from every DEATH album

In a 2014 interview with Metal Rules , DiGiorgio was asked what DEATH TO ALL means to him. He responded: "Our formulated answer is that it is a tribute memorializing the memory of Chuck . To me, it means getting back with buddies. And you've seen their lineup change a little bit here. We had Paul [ Masvidal ] and Sean [ Reinert ] from CYNIC . We had Shannon Hamm in for a while. And now Gene and Bobby . I've jammed with all these guys over the years. They're pretty much some of the best musicians in the world. At least in my opinion."

He continued: "We did those albums back in the day, and when our cycle was over, and when whoever lasted however long, we went our own ways. Now we're back together again and it's cool, from my point of view, to do music with some of the best, amazing musicians/guys in the world. It's awesome. And we have a lot of fun every night, man, because we all realize that not only did we make a statement [30]-something years ago, but here we are [30]-something years later in our [50s] playing that stuff as we did as young men. It's kind of, like, yay us. Because… we're playing this music we did just turning the corner into 20 and we're doing it pretty good. And that's not a brag. The reason is we push each other. Somebody falls a little bit behind and this guy's right behind him. You don't want to let your guard down, because everybody's really good at what they do. And that's what it means to me, man. It means to carry on what we did back then with no idea where we'd be in the future, and here we are doing it with conviction."

Schuldiner died on December 13, 2001 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor.

In recent years, DEATH 's storied catalog has undergone a meticulous reissue campaign via Relapse Records .

Relapse released the first-ever fully authorized DEATH tab book, featuring 21 classic songs tabbed out for guitar from the band's entire discography. The book, which includes traditional notation as well as tablature, also comes with a digital download of all tracks.

In a 2011 interview with Bass Musician magazine, DiGiorgio stated about working with Schuldiner : "Sometimes people make good music together, and sometimes they vibe like yin and fucking yang. Chuck is credited with a lot of things in the music world (metal world, of course),but one thing a lot of people don't know much about is how aware he was. What I mean is that he was a good listener. If I thought of a wacky bassline to something he was writing, before I could even try to explain why it came to me, he was already ahead of it and looking for something on the next part. He had a good sense of when to hold me back and when to push me. It was great to have someone, especially the 'main man' of the band not only appreciate what I contributed but also help me find my inner demon to conjure even sicker and more abstract things to play. There really was some math going on in that roiling storm sometimes."

Death Magnetic

  • Edit source
  • View history

Death Magnetic is the ninth studio album by Metallica released in 2008, and was released as downloadable content for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock . It is cross-compatible with Guitar Hero World Tour and newer main titles as well as Guitar Hero: Metallica , and can be downloaded from their stores as well (although only " Broken, Beat & Scarred ", " Cyanide " and " My Apocalypse " can be downloaded in the Wii version), with updated note charts to take advantage of those games' newer gameplay mechanics such as Drums , Vocals , extended sustains , open notes for Bass, and more.

Guitar Hero: Metallica already had "All Nightmare Long" as part of the game's on-disc main setlist so the Death Magnetic album DLC will add the other tracks to the game, although due to the Wii and PlayStation 2 's inability to download the full album, "Broken Beat & Scarred", "Cyanide" and "My Apocalypse" were already included in those versions of the game.

It is to be noted, also, that the instrumental track " Suicide & Redemption " was released in two versions for Guitar Hero with different guitar solos in the middle of the song. A long guitar solo performed by James Hetfield (Metallica's rhythm guitarist and vocalist) in "Suicide & Redemption J.H.", and a long guitar solo performed by Kirk Hammett in "Suicide & Redemption K.H.", while the retail album release had the first half of James's solo in the first half and the first half of Kirk's solo in the second half of the long guitar solos.

There are many complaints about the sound quality of the retail version of the album, and many fans believe that the audio files on the DLC sounds better.

Track listing [ ]

  • " That Was Just Your Life " (7:08)
  • " The End of the Line " (7:52)
  • " Broken, Beat & Scarred " (6:25)
  • " The Day That Never Comes " (7:56)
  • " All Nightmare Long " (7:58)
