To cap off another great Metal Month, Toontrack is launching a brand new drum MIDI pack called “Black Metal MIDI.” This MIDI pack will work with all EZDrummer, EZDrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2.0. It has more than 420 drum grooves and fills, in 4/4 and 6/8 with both straight and swing, inspired by classic and modern black metal, all preformed by Efraim Juntunen of Swedish black metal band NaglfarTempos range from 70 to 220 BPM and also includes song structures (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc). Make sure you check out for more info! So are you ready to get grim and frostbitten?


Today, Toontrack announced the release of the Black Metal MIDI pack, a collection of drum grooves and fills in MIDI format for EZdrummer 1, EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2. This marks the concluding release for Toontrack’s 2016 Metal Month campaign.

Efraim Juntunen of Swedish black metal pioneers Naglfar takes you on board for a journey down the long and winding rapids of black metal drums. From the steady doom-like beats to the rampant, grinding tirades and violent outbursts in fills, Juntunen steers his vessel with one firm and central idea: keeping it simple and to the point.

“To me, a steady and consistent beat is key. A lot of times, I hear drummers go off and completely lose track of the song. Especially in a songwriting scenario, when all you’re looking for is the perfect beat, something too busy can be a real hurdle. I have intentionally left all of that out and made a collection of grooves tailored for songwriting,” he commented.
Just like on a canvas, it’s easier to add than to take away what’s already there. Start forging your next piece of black metal today.

  • Ah, I was hoping this would include some midi keyboard sounds, and perhaps a few reverbs like “grim necroforest” and “swedish bathroom with a tape recorder”

    • Hahaha! And IRs from crappy 90’s practice amps.
