As some of the world’s biggest metal bands – and worst fonts – come together at Ozzfest meets Knotfest, Rock Band 4 gets new DLC so you can play along at home.
Ozzfest and Knotfest join forces this weekend at the San Manuel Amphitheater in California to form Ozzfest meets Knotfest – the biggest metal festival ever to take place in North America. To mark the occasion Harmonix has created a new DLC package featuring tracks from some of the show’s biggest acts.
They’ve also managed to get a rather wonderful quote from Megadeth frontman, Dave Mustaine:
“This is going to be one of the most brutal releases Rock Band has ever put out. Get ready to destroy your guitars and drums!”
Despite over 30 acts performing at this weekend’s festival, the Ozzfest meets Knotfest 2016 pack isn’t as ‘brutal’ as you might hope and contains a mere three tracks.
- Megadeth – ‘Dystopia’
- Ozzy Osbourne – ‘Road To Nowhere’
- Slipknot – ‘The Devil In I’
The pack will be available from 20 September on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is priced $5.49. You can also purchase each track separately for $1.99.
If you prefer the real thing it’s not too late to get tickets. Head over to www.ozzfestmeetsknotfest.com for more information.
