Guitar Hero: Metal Gods is a music video game developed by Neversoft and distributed by Activision. The game was released in North America on the PlayStation 3, Wii, and XBox 360 on September 15th 2009 and on PlayStation 2 on November 3rd, then released globablly on November 12th. Guitar Hero: Metal Gods is a spinoff from the main series, following Guitar Hero: Masters of Metal. Neversoft have confirmed that a third "metal" Guitar Hero would arrive in the near future, possibly adopting the title Metal Hero rather than Guitar Hero.

The game is based on Guitar Hero: World Tour, with support for lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals. The game has many of the same features from World Tour, including single-player and band Career modes, online competitive modes, and the ability to create and share songs through "GHTunes". The game focuses, as suggested, on the music genre of metal, and features a wider range of metal. Tom Araya of Slayer, the late Chuck Schuldiner of Death, the late Dimebag Darrell of Pantera and Damageplan, and Ronnie James Dio of Black Sabbath, Dio and Rainbow all lent their image to the game and appear as playable avatars, with Neversoft restricting them to their respective band songs. The game is in turn dedicated to Dimebag and Chuck Schuldiner.

Main setlistEdit

The following list is the complete setlist of songs featured in the game, including the year of release of the song according to the game, the song name, the artist, and the song's placement in the band Career mode. All songs are based on master recordings, in two cases, specifically re-recorded for the game. In the game's Career mode, songs are presented sequentially in tiers representing both real and fictional venues. To access each subsequent tier, the players must accumulate a number of stars from available songs; completing a song rewards the players with up to five stars based on their overall performance. Tiers are arranged in approximate difficulty, which varies between the single player instrument careers and the band career modes, with later tiers representing more difficult songs. The final/exit song after completing the final tier, "Thou Shalt Headbang", is Pantera's "Cemetery Gates", with the player able to play as Dimebag's avatar. [1]
