Does Metallica’s New CD Sound Better in Guitar Hero?

Fans and audio pros have been complaining about the sound of Metallica’s new CD, Death Magnetic, in comparison to the same tracks in Activision’s Guitar Hero III. News outlets including NME, UK Mastering engineer Ian Shepard’s blog, The Guardian, and Wired magazine have all carried stories featuring comparisons of the two releases including audio waveforms as evidence of over compression and distortion. You can see the difference in the waveforms below comparing the same song from the CD and GHIII. A mystery Metal producer actually remixed a song from the Guitar Hero stems and fans have circulated a petition calling for the record to be completely remixed.
