Bandfuse: Rock Legends

Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho will appear as the eighth "legend" in upcoming music game BandFuse: Rock Legends, Realta Entertainment announced today. Laiho joins other rock icons like Slash, Bootsy Collins, George Lynch, Mike Ness, Zakk Wylde, and Five Finger Death Punch's Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook.

These musicians will not appear as avatars in the game, but rather through videos teaching players various techniques and imparting lessons they've learned through their careers.

"The musical path I have chosen has been amazing so far, and a new part of this journey is having the honor to be part of BandFuse: Rock Legends," Laiho said in a statement. "Being able to deliver my thoughts on shredding technique in game--not in avatar form but as myself--makes an unimaginable impact on my desire to take part in this game. BandFuse: Rock Legends is a terrific way to learn how to blow minds, melt faces, and play killer music."

The 55-song tracklist for Bandfuse: Rock Legends (below) was announced recently. It includes tracks spanning various genres and decades of music history. BandFuse: Rock Legends will be released on November 19 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
