Rock Band DLC Update: Week of 03-18-08

by Paul


This week’s round of Rock Band songs brings a little Metal to the line up. Okay, not a little Metal… a shiat load of ultra hard core thrash metal under the guise of the “Earache Thrash Pack.” Here are the bands. Give yourself a cookie if you recognize any of these bands and an extra if you actually know the songs. Then give yourself a hug, because you probably hate your parents. Hey man, it’s all right. They can’t hurt you anymore.

* “Blinded by Fear” by At the Gates
* “DOA” by The Haunted
* “Thrasher” by Evile

They are available individually for $1.99 each (160 Microsoft Points) or $5.49 (440 points) as a bundle. They’re also master tracks, but I can’t imagine why any of these songs would necessitate the use of a cover band.

If you want to more about the songs and the bands that made them… uh famous… then check out Harmonix’s run down. Be sure to check out the videos after the break before you go, though!

Blinded by Fear

My neighbors will hate me if I try playing or singing any of these songs at a decent volume level or even think about playing and singing these songs.


I hate when the music doesn’t start right away. Metal isn’t some dudes talking! Metal is yelling and pounding on things!!!


I bet there’s like a million songs named DOA. Even though I love Foo Fighters, this DOA rocks the hell out of theirs.

And now I’d like to put in my official request for Fear Factor and Ministry. Thanks.
