Band Photo: Metallica (?)

The iPhone game/app "Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica" has been announced. The game features ten Metllica songs and can be purchased online for just $4.99 here.

"Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica is the first game in the Tap Tap Revenge series to include a Bluetooth-based Battles Mode where players challenge friends to a point-by-point battle where they can deploy bombs and other special objects to distract the opposition and come out victorious. Accompanying the Career Mode is a new fast-paced Arcade Mode where players are challenged with yet more bombs and other special objects that make the game that much more difficult.

When asked for a quote about "Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica," Lars turned it over to his eleven year old son, Myles, who, while coming up for air in between games, was heard uttering, "You haven't lived 'till you've played this!"

Finally, everyone who purchases Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica will be entered to win cool stuff, including the grand prize of a trip to Las Vegas for the show there on December 5, including airfare, hotel, tickets (duh!) and meet and greet passes. Click here for more info about the contest.

"Tap Tap Revenge: Metallica" includes the following ten Metallica songs:

Enter Sandman
Sad But True
King Nothing
All Nightmare Long
Some Kind of Monster
Master of Puppets
Seek & Destroy
Fuel
One
For Whom the Bell Tolls

It works on both iPhone and iPod touch devices running iPhone OS2 or OS3, and you can play in both networked and offline settings. Check out tapulous.com for all your Tap Tap needs.

First of all, chill out people - if MetalBro4Life wants to brag about his "accomplishments" in this thread, then it's about as on topic as anything, if a little sad.

Second, for the iphone users, how is the Metalunderground.com experience on an iPhone? Any issues or complaints as compared to other sites? I would love the feedback. Thanks.

MB : ur a bastard >.> BG : LMAO!!! and DB : well i would have a couple of ideas for an app for MU, like it'd 1st ask u to LOG IN (not 'login' as u guys have it here) if ur a member or just enter as guest. then there should b just the 1st top news article and the buttons above it to navigate thru to (like NEWS, BANDS, REVIEWS, etc.), and if one would just tap 'news' it'll just have all the news articles of the day in just lil snippets going down in one column just like here above in the metal news headlines, and soo on goes my idea but like i said, i would b more than happy to help, but once i've obtained the appropiate knowledge of doing soo.

Well first off, i d like to send congrats to MBRO for setting two MU records for 2009....#1 10 consecutive posts on a thread and #2 29 total posts on one thread, just edging out megalomaniac666 and b420 during our old spat....(audience applause)
Secondly these kind of games arent my thing, but they appeal to some and to alot of kids, metallica left the underground a long time ago, with this day and age of people downloading free music bands have to do whatever they can to make a buck so i kinda get why metallica did this even though its not my thing....
^bg its opening day, shouldnt you be at a theatre right now, or did you go to the midnight show? No P.A. Flick yet huh?
^brian, jeez where did that come from?
Ballsy of you but damn....LOL
Lastly, all for the MU to do whatever it takes to promote the site and market the product....just no m&m's, or lunchboxes and im all for it
