To kick off the Metal Month of November, Toontrack has just announced the release of their newest drum expansion: Drums of Destruction EZX! The EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 expansion features sound samples captured specifically by Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler and Producer Josh Wilbur, and the duo were able to capture some incredibly destructive and metal AF drums sounds.
Here is the description from the Toontrack website:
“The Drums of Destruction EZX comes with two full kits, one of which is Chris’ personal Mapex set while the other is a Pearl Reference kit that was handpicked by Josh and used on several of his productions. In addition, it includes five snares, one extra kick as well as Chris’ trademark abundance of cymbals. It was recorded through an SSL4064G+, various chains of analogue outboard and captured with carefully selected microphones at Josh’s studio of choice, Hybrid Studios in Orange Country, CA. With its perfectly treated one-thousand-square-foot live room, it has proved time and time again in countless sessions to be an ideal location for ambient but still tight and defined drums that have a transparent character.”
Drums of Destruction EZX specs:
• Two kits (Mapex, Pearl), three kicks and five snares
• Recorded at Hybrid Studios, Orange Country, CA
