Death Magnetic, the band's ninth studio album, will be available to download and play for Guitar Hero 3: Legends Of Rock this Friday. It will cost 1440 Microsoft points to obtain.
Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Activision Blizzard, said: "We've been working very closely with Metallica and we're extremely excited to offer Death Magnetic not only in its entirety, but also with the exclusive recordings of 'Suicide & Redemption' as downloadable content to Guitar Hero fans."
'Suicide & Redemption' will feature extended solos recorded especially for the game. The download will also be compatible for the upcoming Guitar Hero: World Tour.
