Metallica admit ‘we’re bad at ‘Guitar Hero”

However, band's new album is being released via game

Metallica have admitted to being bad at playing Guitar Hero.

The metal titans’ new album ‘Death Magnetic’ will be the first to be released simultaneously on normal formats and on the hit computer game this Friday (September 12).

The band have revealed they’ve struggled to get to grips with the plastic guitar-based game, however.

“We’re all bad,” bassist Rob Trujillo told the Metro. “It’s a different animal playing that game.”

‘Death Magnetic’ was leaked online last week after allegedly being sold before its release date in a French record shop.
