Guitar Hero Van Halen – Free Demo on Xbox Live

As we have now come to expect and admire, the release of Guitar Hero Van Halen is being accompanied by a free demo available now on Xbox Live. The demo features 4 playable tracks from the game, they are -Dope Nose (Weezer), End of Heartache (Killswitch Engage), Eruption (Eddie Van Halen Solo), Panama (Van Halen). From playing the demo we can confirm that past fans of the game who think it has now gone too soft and easy will not be disappointed, Eddie Van Halen is known as a master of his art for a very good reason and anyone completing this on expert really needs to consider a career in music! One tip we can give you is you may want to consider ditching your old faithful GH3 guitar in favour of something with a touch slider as there is a lot of crazy sliding solo work to be done!

The Guitar Hero Van Halen game (now the 8th game in the series), features 25 epic Van Halen tracks, 3 special Eddie Van Halen signature solos and 19 guest acts, so as with previous band specific Guitar Hero releases, will be high on the Christmas list of any Van Halen fan.
