DENVER (Billboard) - Every song from Metallica's upcoming album "Death Magnetic" will be available for gamers to download and play on "Guitar Hero III" and its sequel "Guitar Hero World Tour" on the same as-yet-unannounced day it is released to retail, the band said on its Web site.

Microsoft also mentioned the availability during the E3 gaming conference underway in Los Angeles. A dedicated Metallica "Guitar Hero" game in the vein of the recent Aerosmith title is also in the offing, but it's unknown when it will see the light of day.
