Hey gang,

This week’s DLC offerings come courtesy of a quintessential modern metal band, and Rock Band fan-favorites, Slipknot. As the band celebrates the 10th anniversary of their 2001 release Iowa with a reissue, we join in the celebration by releasing 4 tracks spanning their epic catalog!

“Wait and Bleed” kicks off the pack from their first record, 1999’s eponymous Slipknot, quickly followed by “Left Behind” from Iowa. These tracks are joined by “Pulse of the Maggots” from Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), released in 2004 and the ballad “Snuff” from their most recent studio release, 2009’s All Hope is Gone. Every studio release from the band is represented in this 4-pack and it makes for a raucous retrospective!

As always, songs available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3 feature five-button guitar and bass parts, drums, Pro Drums, and keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable. Some songs also feature Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available for an additional $0.99 upgrade download.

***HMX EDIT 9/28 on WAIT AND BLEED DISCUSSION***

Hey all, sorry for not responding to comments about Wait and Bleed sooner, but I wanted to make sure I had as much info as possible from Microsoft and the Audio Team here at HMX.

To give a bit of background, there was a MIDI error that caused the tempo map at the end of the song (roughly between 2:38 and 2:50) to go out of sync. Gems were playable but did not match up with the audio as intended. This issue only affected Wait and Bleed, and only in the Slipknot Pack on Xbox 360, so versions downloaded as singles or on other platforms should be unaffected.

The Audio Team hustled with Microsoft to replace the offer, and we've been told that a new version of the Slipknot Pack should be available in the store now. All you should have to do is redownload the pack to get the corrected version of Wait and Bleed. If there are any further issues, I'll pass comments from this thread along to everyone involved on our side.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and feedback while we sorted this out as quickly as possible.
