Dyers Eve has the fastest tempo of all the Metallica songs on the game, and is extremely difficult to five-star. The song picks up it's speed very quickly, features fast alt-strumming plus two very difficult solo sections from James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett (expect no less from Metallica) and a very quick crossover/double bass drum-beat by Lars Ulrich. The difficulty of each instrument is similar to Battery, and Fight Fire with Fire. The hardest instrument is the drums. Dyers Eve supports the Expert +.
Gaining a score of 450,000 in drums rewards the player with the "Dyers Eve" achievement.
