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:
