GOJIRA’s Mario Duplantier Announces “Rythme Sauvage” by Toontrack


Ever wish you could have a world-class drummer living inside your computer, ready with an assortment of beats and fills at your beck and call? Like, say, for instance, Mario Duplantier of Gojira?

As part of Toontrack’s ongoing Metal Month campaign, the company today announced the release of the Rythme Sauvage MIDI pack, an all-new collection of grooves performed by Gojira drummer Mario Duplantier. The title reflects the connection to Gojira’s “L’Enfant Sauvage” album as well as Mario’s signature style of drumming. In addition, the product also features custom artwork, painted by Mario himself.

About the Rythme Sauvage MIDI pack
By molding disparate elements of classic, progressive and extreme metal, the brand of sound that Gojira represents has lent them a position as one of the forerunners in today’s metal scene. One key ingredient behind the monster that has become Gojira is the incomparable drumming of Mario Duplantier – an inventive, layered and highly expressive combination of refined finesse, technicality and savage power.
All of this is what Mario brings to the Rythme Sauvage MIDI pack. Loosely based around the Gojira catalogue as well as several all-new compositions, he delivers a collection of grooves that expresses the whole range in tempo, emotion and complexity. Be it classic or progressive metal, heavy rock or fusion, this is the perfect set of grooves for any writer.
