Greetings Rocksmith Ghouls and Ghosts!
This week’s Spoooooky DLC contains two new additions to Rocksmith 2014 and two singles from previous artists! Let’s take a look at what we’re getting in advance of the spookiest night of the year!
We start off with those scary, evil Canadians and their band Billy Talent! They bring, from 2009’s Billy Talent III, the song Devil on My Shoulder (not to be confused with the similarly titled Devil in a Midnight Mass, which was released as part of the first Billy Talent pack)! Plus, this is as close as we’re probably going to get to Led Zeppelin.
Now we head south towards Los Angeles and meet up with Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo. As New Wave is a criminally under-represented genre in Rocksmith, it’s always great to see more of it come to the game. This week it comes to us in the form of the title track from their 1985 album, it’s Dead Man’s Party!
Next, we go across the Atlantic where we meet the ULTIMATE metal band! Yes, Motörhead return to Rocksmith. The NWOBHM legends first appeared in the Classic Riff Singles week with the legendary track Ace of Spades. This week, the equally amazing Killed by Death joins the lineup. While it originally appeared on 1984’s No Remorse, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that we could be receiving the 2008 re-record that was done for Rock Band given that’s what we got for Ace of Spades.
We stay in Europe for our final artist, moving East as we go to The Netherlands. It’s not quite making it’s rhythm game debut, but the original, 6 minute masterpiece is! It’s one of the most requested songs in rhythm game history! It’s guaranteed to be a workout for all your fingers! It’s the first yodelling song in the game! From 1971’s Moving Waves it’s none other than Hocus Pocus by Focus!
