Guitar Hero Live’s Shred-a-Thon Event Hits Today Bringing DragonForce

on February 3, 2016 5:36 PM

During yesterday’s weekly Guitar Hero Live update, I mentioned that big news was likely coming today with the launch of the Shred-a-Thon special event. While I assumed this would include DragonForce’s iconic “Through the Fire and Flames,” I had no idea that the event would come with a new channel entirely.

According to a press release issued today, Shred-a-Thon (launching today and lasting until February 8, 2016) adds a third channel for a limited time to Guitar Hero TV.  The new channel focuses on developer-picked rock favorites that pose the heaviest challenge to seasoned players. Expect to see the following tracks:

  • Alter Bridge — “Cry of Achilles”
  • DragonForce — “Through the Fire and Flames”
  • Lamb of God — “Ghost Walking”
  • Megadeth — “Hanger 18”
  • Trivium — “Strife”

After Shred-a-Thon ends on February 8, “Through the Fire and Flames” will be added to the normal song catalog. Check out the trailer for the event below:
