Rocksmith 2014 DLC 1/19/2016 – Megadeth II

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Finally some more METAL DLC on Rocksmith 2014! There’s no way anyone is going to argue about Megadeth being metal right? Ok, good.

The hand punishment is due this week for those that dare to tackle this five pack of shredding guitar solos, and high octane bass lines. Highly requested songs to make up this five pack include, A Tout Le Monde, Holy Wars… The Punishment Due, Peace Sells, Tornado Of Souls, and Trust!

Best part? Only one song is in Eb Standard, so if you are up to it everyone can play without tuning their axe too much.

Megadeth II Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

Do these @Megadeth songs scratch the #moarmetal itch, or are you a Metallica fan? (I keed). Let us know!

A big thanks to RS Team for this pack. Lots of extra work with no extra compensation. Many of us will enjoy trying to master these songs for a long time to come.

If I’m not mistaken, the version of A Tout Le Monde that appears on United Abominations was recorded in E Standard. For me, this inclusion would have made the selections for Megadeth pack II 100% perfect. With nine total tracks on RS, I’m happy to see that Rust In Peace album is now well represented, as well as a good mix of old/new. Finally, I’m a little surprised that this pack didn’t include a track from their new album, set to drop tomorrow, no less. Not complaining, just surprised.

It’s a killer pack, and should take awhile to master. I’d vote for it over QOTSA and STP. We should have a Technical pack of the year poll at the years end.

What a great pack, I know 3 different versions of a tout le monde and I am so glad they picked the best one! Never expected to get this song honestly but I love it. Played through the pack and it is really awesome! Some riffs are challenging, some are quite simple but fast and other are more approachable, really a perfect wellrounded pack. The solos are mostly above my skill level but gives plenty of replay value. Tornado of souls kills my left wrist lol but its so much fun!

There’s a really great octave effect that hits at perfect times on the bass track for this tune.

I’ve been aching to play To Bid You Farewell on Rocksmith for a while now. Have you requested any others?

Holy Wars, Peace Sells, and Tornado sells it for me. The rest is just a bonus that I will be getting 😈

How’s this for a bonus: looks like “Peace Sells” has been pitch-shifted to avoid a True Tuning (A430, I believe, is the pitch of the original recording).

Wow, this pack is excellent. There’s a lot of Megadeth songs I could have been happy with, but all 5 of these songs are particularly good choices. It’s been a while since I’ve been so excited for DLC. Thank you Rocksmith! Please don’t take any more long breaks from heavy metal packs! 🙂
