A special five day marathon of guitar shredding tunes has been announced today, as Guitar Hero Live‘s Shred-A-Thon event goes live on GHTV. The brand new event is bringing some of the toughest songs in Guitar Hero history back to the stage for players to attempt to remaster over the next few days.
The Shred-a-Thon playlist is set to include the following tracks on repeat:
DragonForce – Through the Fire and Flames
Alter Bridge – Cry of Achilles
Megadeth – Hangar 18
Lamb of God – Ghost Walking
Trivium – Strife
Once the event is over, Through the Fire and Flames will be joining the game’s regular track-list so the return of the iconic tune will be a far more longstanding one than previously expected. Every song in the Shred-A-Thon is also Rival Challenge-enabled, which means players have the option of competing against matchmade gamers in a head-to-head battle during each song.
Guitar Hero Live‘s five day Shred-A-Thon event is live through a special third channel of GHTV, and will be active until Monday 8th February, ending at 3pm GMT.
