You'll need to get a multitrack recording program (like Sonar, Logic, or maybe even Audacity would suffice). On top of that you might want something to compose other instruments and drum lines in - I use FLStudio for that.

I have to ask... are you a musician?

I've been writing and producing for almost ten years now (and love it). But when someone talks about making tracks and doesn't know what software is out there, I'm a bit suspicious. Laying beats, bass line and guitar isn't quite as easy as ya might hope.

But if you're ready for it, try Orion

For the best bass and drum sounds i recomend using GigaStudio. Its totally accoustic instrument oriented. All you need after is play some guitar over your bass and drum tracks and add desired FX and vocals. Be prepared to be learning to make it all happen for at least 2 or 3 months tho ( thats assuming you already know how to write songs and play guitar )

thats sort of a vague question... it all depends on how much money you want to spend for starters... and if you play guitar...

your best bet on emulating metal riffs is 'Slayer' it works inside of fruityloops or cubase.. it creates metal riffs in whatever note you play...

for bass guitar emulation, you can use "BooBass" which is a default plugin inside of FLStudio, OR ..if i recall.. 'VB-1' which is a free plugin inside cubase sx.

drums.. theres a lot of ways to go.
you can use FruityLoops default kits.. or you can buy a rock drum sample CD like "Drumkits From Hell" OR.. your easiest bet would be to use something like Steinberg Groove Agent... where you pick the style of drums you want and set how complex you want the beat and it does most of the work for you.

I think that for a game synthetized (MIDI) bass, drums and keyboards would sound decent. Guitars, at least for me, gotta be real otherwise they'll sound ugly.

Write the bass and drums with a midi program and then record the guitars separately, then mix all with some program. A multitrack one will make things easier and better, but you can achieve results combining wavs one by one, if they are perfectly syncronized.
