Toontrack releases "Thrash Metal" and "Death Metal" MIDI packs

Toontrack Music

Toontrack has announced the Thrash Metal MIDI pack, a collection of drum grooves and fills inspired by thrash metal from the '80s through to today. This marks the sixty-seventh individual title in Toontrack's ever-growing line of drum MIDI and the second release of the company's annual Metal Month campaign that launched last week with Death Metal MIDI pack.

Here's what they say:

Thrash Metal MIDI pack (€25) is a collection of MIDI grooves and fills that takes a head-first plunge into the deep realms of thrash metal music from the late '80s through to today. Delivering a battery of piercing brutality that encapsulates all the conservative traits of the genre, but also adding elements and ideas that upend the sometimes narrow confines of the style, this pack is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a solid yet versatile foundation of beats for use in any thrash or broad-scope metal context.

Get the classic rampant two-beats and all the pummeling mid-tempo grooves to go with them, but at the same time a creative take on intros, tom grooves and fills. Force, ingenuity and sheer brutality – this collection comes up short on none.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by thrash metal music.
  • Performed by professional drummer.
  • Approx. 460 individually played files.
  • 4/4 in straight and/or swing feel.
  • Tempos ranging from 120 BPM to 240 BPM.
  • Song structure categorization (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills, etc.).

Death Metal MIDI pack (€25) is a collection of drum grooves and fills performed by Cattle Decapitation drummer Dave McGraw. With extreme finesse and razor-sharp execution, drummer Dave McGraw steamrolls his way through this collection of MIDI like a battering RAM. Handling drumming duties in the death metal band Cattle Decapitation, he's obliged to master anything from the heaviest and most basic of backbeats to the utmost in technical prowess – something that goes to show in this pack. Expect the entire range, from bombastic and ultra-heavy to savage tempos, hammering bass drums and blistering fills. This is death metal drumming in its most raw and stark form, executed by a drummer at the vanguard of the international scene.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by extreme death metal music.
  • Performed by Dave McGraw (Cattle Decapitation).
  • Approx. 400 individually played files.
  • 4/4 in straight and/or swing feel.
  • Tempos ranging from 88 BPM to 260 BPM.
