Speculation: SLAYERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Two METAL bands in a row? Two THRASH bands in one year? Three of the BIG FOUR in Rocksmith 2014 DLC?

Yup, all that is happening next week with the confirmation of a Slayer FIVE pack next week!

Let’s take a look at @DanAmrich’s Clue!

  • SLITHERING OUT OF THE DARKNESS
  • MANKIND HAS CREATED ITS OWN HELL
  • CONSUMING EVERYTHING AND EXISTING AS ANATHEMA
  • OBLIVIOUSLY LURCHING TOWARD ITS FINAL DAY
  • ALL TOO QUICKLY THESE DOOMED SOULS WILL REALIZE
  • THEIR PROPHESIED END IS FINALLY NEAR

That means the first confirmed @Slayer song is…

You all know how much I love this song in music games 😀

What other songs might we expect?

Please….

Because outside the solo it’s not that challenging to play

Because it’s in @RockBand

Of course we probably aren’t going to see Angel of Death due to the historical subject matter and often misconstrued meaning behind the song, but a five pack of @Slayer is just awesome in general. I only wish that Jeff could have lived to see @Audrey123Talks playing Raining Blood…

Are you excited for Slayer? Do you mind tuning to Eb Standard? Or is this just way too much Metal for one month? Let us know!

Wow, things have escalated a bit since I last checked in here. I don’t know if Gotch71 has ever had a genuine post, but at this point they’re just trying to piss you guys off. I understand wanting to defend the virtues of Slayer, but don’t the feed trolls. Just be happy the pack is almost here after all this waiting and try and tune out the nonsense. In the end, the fans of Slayer are the true winners, because they’re the ones that are getting packs they want. To everyone unsatisfied with the amount of metal packs, if you’re… Read more »

Pease..it’s fine to call slayer crap… U guys know who u are… U suck the teet of ubsoft every week.. Oh great download .. This is awesome!!… Can’t wait… Grow a set of nuts and hopefully the garbage downloads will stop… Because I won’t … Don’t like the truth don’t read my posts… U mad bro??

HA!
Guest
HA!

I thought that the All That Remains dlc was a wasted opportunity, and I’m not interested in Slayer either. ATR sucks, imo, but Slayer certainly isn’t crap. Again, you don’t have to like them, but I absolutely understand why so many people are excited for Slayer dlc. Incredible guitar playing and wicked skills. Like em or not…mad respect. Not my cup of tea and obviously not yours either. Need to be an antagonistic, whiny asshole about it? Nope.

Haha this article is crawling up towards 100 posts, slayer has a huge following. I can’t believe people who talk like this guy or girl does; honestly, are you 5 years old? So whiney and can’t respect music. When you truly respect music it doesn’t matter if it does something for you; you know it motivates others. Gotch71 you are the least intimidating troll i’ve ever seen. I’ll pass on the slayer dlc, and look forward to next week. Went back and got matchbox 20 pack and aerosmith lately, plus i’ve got the blues stuff to play so i am… Read more »

Why haven’t you been banned yet?

English test: F-
Slayer starts with a capital if you are referring to the band.
It isn’t U, it’s YOU
It’s Please, not PEASE
Correct me if i’m wrong. But i’m pretty sure it’s teat not teet.
You should put quotation marks in the “Oh great download .. This is awesome!!… Can’t wait…” .
And before you jump in and say i’m a fanboy. I have listened to Slayer, and i can safely say that Slayer is one of the best of its kind.

Do you need someone to talk to? Has someone done you wrong? Maybe not getting any at home? It’s all right, you can let it all out. Taking your anger out on Slayer and their fans is just making you look more and more like an ignorant dumbass with each post. They are a well-loved, accomplished band with a huge fan base and a long history. No one said that you have to like them. So you don’t like them, then guess what? Don’t buy the dlc and be happy that they are getting 5 packs from such big artists.… Read more »

I’ll bet people, for the most part aren’t that upset with the dlc that’s been released. There’s a lot of awesome dlc (imo) that I’d love to pick up, but maxing out the old credit card is a bad move when something I really want may be right around the corner. So, I think we’d all agree that it would be very cool of the skilled and attractive Ubisoft Rocksmith team, if they had a killer sale on Xbox and playstation so we’d be even more in awe of their generosity and knack for giving the people something to strive… Read more »

Been playing the blues pack pretty much every day since release. Think more in that direction guys. Far, far too much metal in ROCKsmith.

I love metal (there isn’t as much metal in this as people seem to think, many in that list below are hard rock, not metal), but i do agree we need much more blues, rock ‘n roll, funk, and some jazz too.

MarleySantana

I’m not into metal and therefore feel zero excitement/interest in DLC of this nature. I will say though that there really isn’t all that much of it on RS. You have Rock and Hard Rock. I think some folks are lumping all of that together and just calling it metal I do agree with both you and Thom. The blues is in short supply. And looking at all of the post related to May’s Blues Pack, it seems a large number of us feel the same. Bring on more blues. Gotta spread the love though and thsi week it’s Metal’s… Read more »

I’ve been playing Slayer riffs since I got my first guitar more than 20 years ago. It’ll be nice to finally learn to play the full songs correctly. I’m hoping for Seasons in the Abyss, Dead Skin Mask, South of Heaven, and Spirit in Black (and Reign in Blood). Haters can hate, but metal is a great workout for my guitar skills! I’ll still be excited for Jazzsmith, though.

I’m super excited for everyone that has been waiting patiently for Slayer, and I hope you have a blast. I will listen to Slayer here and there, but I generally don’t enjoy them. The guitar style sounds cool, just not something I enjoy playing. You guys have fun, and I get to save some money for next week! 🙂

old slayer or isnt worth a thing like metallica nothing after master

the moment its gonna be fun its when they ll a full album of someone ( youll have the choose the right one , but that could be funny

danamrich

If we get static for a 5-pack, how on earth are we going to get a full album accepted? More likely we’d get “why didn’t you just take the 5 songs I wanted and do a pack of that instead of the whole album?” 🙂

because some album are seriously great from beginning to end and most of the times those artist are the best around for example Jailbreak , Ride the Lightning , Diary of a madman , this one you almost put all on Boston 1st lol , Painkiller , Pyromiania , Enema of the State , THUNDER SEVEN..sry for caps just passing throught a little of my album and there so much more but those are incredible , we dont need to think im one minded i love guitar sound with energy .. but im going far from the point that an… Read more »

Of course it’s a female who hates metal. If you don’t like it, then get out. Oh, by the way, jazz sucks.

Hey I’d love some Metallica any day but screaming/growling isn’t music…

toshineon
Guest

It may not sound good if you’re not into that kind of music, but you’d be surprised at the amount of vocal skill and effort that goes into screaming and growling. It’s far more complex than just outright screaming normally.

Bonza Bloke
Guest

Exactly. That’s why world class Opera singers don’t growl/scream.

Pavarotti couldn’t even do it because it was just too complex for him. Before he died he said that his one regret was that he couldn’t be as awesome at singing as Frank Oz :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Joseph Ferreira
Guest

the games called rocksmith, not voicesmith. the guitar riffs in Slayer songs are both fun AND challenging.who cares about the singing. All those bands you mentioned were released because they’re not uptight and released their song rights & a lot of people requested them. obviously at least one of these two factors does not apply to your chosen Jazz or there probably would have been one already. And personally i suspect we’ll see a country pack LONG before a Jazz pack.

Bonza Bloke
Guest

The other problem with Jazz is that at it’s core is freeform improvisation. You don’t want to be learning a Jazz piece to a 100% accuracy when it should change every time it’s played.

The set note tracking doesn’t mix with improvisation too well. Unless you tune down to Drop C and then it doesn’t matter what notes you play, Rocksmith can’t tell any more. :grinning:

That’s one of the worst formulated posts I have ever had the misfortune to read.
Pure literary diareah.
Maybe you should go back to school and ask them to teach you English.

Clever use of irony, putting in the deliberate misspelling. It’s like you’re saying “I’m going to pick on your English skills, but hey, none of us are perfect,”.

Nice.

Just speculation, but I would guess you used to be a poster named David Lane, then you were the girl who hated everything that posted from facebook above. I have a feeling you are all the same person, always complaining, but never stating what you would listen to.

So, what does a troll listen to? I figured the Dethclok Troll awakening song would have been up your alley.

Joseph Ferreira

The fact that you can’t play it doesn’t mean it sucks it means you suck. spend less time trolling and more time practicing. and yes i have seen a bunch of hot chicks running around screaming ‘SLAYER!!!’

I don’t know how you do it, but somehow you manage to have the dumbest comment out of everybody in the comment section in EVERY riff repeater post EVERY single week.

I think royalty is a reference to the name of the BAND and not the ARTIST. So this is our top 40. Prince “changed his tune”, Queen is possible, QotSA is very probable, there is a band called “Royal Blood”, etc.
Either way, cheers to the metalheads.

Secret Squirrel

Whoa… Didn’t see that coming. I thought there’s no way there would be another metal pack. Who cares though? I cannot wait for this pack. If they have Metal Storm/Face The Slayer in the pack, it would be one of the greatest moments in RS DLC history. I want it sooooooooo bad.
