Virtually Double The Fun

Guitar Hero: Metallica becomes the first rock video game to feature a double bass drum setup.

Activision’s hugely popular Guitar Hero title finally has something to satisfy hardcore metalheads. The new Guitar Hero: Metallica is the first interactive rock video game of its kind to feature a double bass drum setup. Aspiring shredders can now blow an afternoon (or a whole weekend) in style, playing along to Lars Ulrich’s double pedal beats on a virtual version of the star’s Tama Starclassic Maple kit on more than 45 monster titles from Metallica and 20 other artists selected by the band.
