METALLICA's "One", SLAYER's "Raining Blood" and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's "3's and 7's" are among the newly confirmed tracks for the upcoming Activision title Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

As previously reported, former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash will provide an original track for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, as well as make an appearance in-game as a boss battle character. The legendary guitarist will not, however, be easy to get to: In order to "unlock" Slash (who donned a motion-capture suit so game makers could track his every pluck), players will have to face him in a one-on-one shredding duel after completing all the songs in the game.
