DLC Week of 1/03: Megadeth and Slayer!

Challenge yourself with DLC from Megadeth and Slayer in Rock Band 4!

Off Megadeth’s Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying? comes “Peace Sells”, one of the highlights from the Rock Band 2 disc soundtrack. It’s hailed as one of the greatest metal songs of all time, shown in its near-perfect track record at Megadeth shows over the last 30 years. From David Ellefson’s bassline to Dave Mustaine’s unmistakable vocals, the song is excellent for all players. Guitarists will head into a challenging first solo, but when it’s over, it goes right into a fast stretch, where the whole band is tested. The kick pattern during the second guitar solo will require proficiency, and a third guitar solo sees things out, assuming you make it through.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any heavier, we’re also adding another Slayer song to the Rock Band 4 library! From the influential ‘80s album Reign in Blood, “Angel of Death” is one of the band’s most loved songs and a highlight of an amazing album. To call it the perfect song for players looking for a challenge is an understatement. Every instrument is super fast, drums have a kick-heavy solo near the end just to make you work for it, the guitar solo has quite the chart that will take more than a little practicing. The bassline sometimes mirrors the guitar, and sometimes plays an incredibly fast series of strums. Get ready.

Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99. The Rock Band Rivals Season 9 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $14.99.
