Slash, one of the most-iconic, Grammy®-winning rock guitarists and songwriters of all-time, will serve as BandFuse’s master guitar instructor; getting novices jamming in minutes and helping advanced players master their instrument. In addition, a number of the world’s most accomplished Rock Legends and new artists such as Five Finger Death Punch – the hard rock band with nine-straight top ten rock singles – will also be integrated into the game to mentor players, with numerous iconic rock idols still to be announced.


Quote: Renowned musician Zakk Wylde will mentor players in the game’s career mode. He has spent much of his career as the lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and is the founder of heavy metal band Black Label Society. In 2006, Zakk was recognized at the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame, featuring his handprints and signature, for his successful career as a musician and his contribution to the music industry. Nancy Wilson is a multitalented artist who will also mentor players though various career levels. She is a core member of the super group Heart that has sold more than 30-million records worldwide and had Top 10 albums on the Billboard Album Chart in the 1970′s, 80′s, 90′s, and most recently 2010. Heart is among the most commercially enduring Hard Rock bands in history. These notable musicians will inspire gamers as they master some of the most recognizable rock songs of all time.


Recently Marcus Henderson (The guy that covered a bunch of songs for WaveGroup [GH1/2]) signed on with BandFuse to join Seth Chapla (who had a few songs on Rocksmith).

Previews (from destructoid/IGN) recently have contested this game has "zero lag" in comparison to their competition, but I'll take that with a grain of salt given the fact a majority of reviewers didn't even set up Rocksmith properly last year.

Still, I gotta give them props for getting Bootsy Collins and Marcus Henderson on board.

That's no small task (well, Bootsy anyways).

One of the 4 songs from this game that need to be in RB; already mentioned the others in a post prior to the site outage.

Also, studio version of Breaking The Law. But RS has had it for a while now.

Thanks for all the feedback and spirited discussions this year and last. Here are a couple of screens that we think you'll find interesting. We'll have our first of many BandFuse contests starting next week.

Hi - this is Jon, the Game Director for BandFuse.
We wanted to let you know we will be updating more frequently. To start things off, let's talk about our song list - one of the best you will ever see in the launch of a music game.

This week we are featuring "I'm Broken" by Pantera which contains a devasting riff in D Standard tuning from lead guitarist Dimebag Darrell. For reasons both personal and professional, the team requires the highest level of authenticity and care when we tackle a song like this.

With BandFuse, we are setting the bar very high. We want to create the best user interface possible for first time players all the way up to pros. We believe that in order to be authentic, you must support high note density, complex songs, full notation, and alternate tunings. No gimmicks, no watered down song list, no latency, no limits.

Instrument Logos look stolen from Rock Band.

Horizontal Scrolling for Guitar LOL.

This game will be a huge flop. I think it will be even worse than Power Gig

Checking in with another update.

With BandFuse, we decided early on to always allow the Player the freedom to play the game the way they want.
The Player chooses what Difficulty Level they want to play each song at.

The lowest level is designed for those who are either transitioning up from a plastic instrument or have never touched an instrument before. The highest advanced level covers all the actual notes played by the Artists.

Every song in BandFuse uses the actual studio stems (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stem_mixing_and_mastering) not just the final studio mix. Because of the extra effort the BandFuse team went to to secure the original stems, your performance will at the highest Difficulty Levels replace that stem.

We are working directly with the Artists to not only get the notes right, but also the way the song was played, hand positions, techniques, etc. We deeply appreciate the assistance from Slash, Zakk Wylde, and Five Finger Death Punch, among others, for their time and participation in this process.

Right now, the Notetracking team is focused on tuning and balancing the songs at each Difficulty Level. This helps keep each Difficulty Level unique, challenging, and fun - while ensuring a smooth ramp all the way up to the real performance. Special thanks to our Notetracking team for their world class effort to get this right for all of you.

- Jon, BandFuse Game Director

That's pretty neat.
