Kicking off their Metal Month celebration, Toontrack has just announced the Death Metal MIDI pack, a package of over 400 drum performances by Cattle Decapitation drummer Dave McGraw. Having watched Dave play on several occasions, I can infer that this is going to be an amazing pack, and anyone who records death metal or grindcore is going to want to get your hands on this.

About the Death Metal MIDI pack
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.
