Guitar Hero Live gets Marilyn Manson, Mastodon

Posted by on May 20, 2015

The latest Guitar Hero Live line-up just got a massive metal boost. Announced earlier this year after a five year hiatus, and with a lackluster opening line-up, Guitar Hero Live has bolstered its metal offerings with some pretty solid acts.

Said Jamie Jackson, FreeStyle Creative Director, to Rolling Stone:

“It’s been 10 years since the first Guitar Hero game came out. When you think of it like that, and think about how much the musical landscape has changed since then – that’s where we’ve been able to explore some new types of musical style as well. Guitar music is broader than it’s ever been – so we’re reflecting that in the range of music on offer.”

The latest Guitar Hero Live, out this fall, will be available on PS 3 and 4, Xbox One and 360, Nintendo Wii U and (somehow) mobile devices. The timing couldn’t be better for the Deftones who have an album out in September, and Killswitch Engage who might have a new album out later this year.

Latest 2015 Guitar Hero Live line-up:

Royal Blood – “Little Monster”
Marilyn Manson – “Disposable Teens”
Killswitch Engage – “In Due Time”
Marmozets – “Move Shake Hide”
Of Mice & Men – “Bones Exposed”
Deftones – “Diamond Eyes”
Vista Chino – “Sweet Remain”
Bring Me the Horizon – “Shadow Moses”
Mastodon – “High Road”
Trivium – “Strife”
