The first Rocksmith 2014 song reveal of this week is about as much of an antithesis as you can get to the previous one.
Today Rocksmith UK’s Facebook page confirmed that the Slayer song will be none other than War Ensemble off their fifth album; Seasons In The Abyss.
The announcement of Slayer being the next artist revealed for the forthcoming game was met with a mix of jubilation, general apathy, and of course some strong opposition from more religious members of the Rocksmith community claiming that Slayer is “Devils Music”.
The content of War Ensemble is no more controversial than Metallica’s Disposable Heroes, so for an “on disc” song, I feel Ubisoft SF made the right choice.
Angel of Death for Slayer Pack 01 amirite?
Are you happy with the inclusion of Slayer in Rocksmith 2014? Or would you have rather seen Testament, Anthrax, Emperor, or Kanye West?
Let us know!
