MESHUGGAH's HAAKE Featured On TOONTRACK's New Sound Expansion 'Metalheads EZX'

Over a decade ago, Toontrack's Drumkit From Hell, or "DFH" as it is affectionately known to musicians and producers around the world, was first introduced. This masterfully recorded, multi-sampled drum instrument has since then become the industry standard in drum production tools for metal artists all across the globe. So it was decided that it was time to head back into the depths hell and see what other drum kits could be found. Just as Toontrack suspected, hell indeed had yet another rhythmic beast waiting or it to unleash upon the metal music production world — only this beast is two-headed!

Meet the new Metalheads EZX expansion library for EZ Drummer.

One world-renowned drummer, Tomas Haake, member of the extreme metal band MESHUGGAH.

One in-demand producer, Daniel Bergstrand, whose mixing and producing credits include the likes of IN FLAMES, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, SOILWORK and MESHUGGAH, just to name a few.

Two incredible drum sets, assembled and recorded to metal perfection, ready to bring your metal productions to the next level. And, for the first time in Toontrack history, it has included separate mix channels in the EZ Drummer mixer, containing kick and snare drum samples designed by Daniel Bergstrand, that augment these already amazingly recorded drums.

Twelve classic MESHUGGAH songs, captured flawlessly via MIDI by Tomas Haake himself, organized both as full songs as well as song parts so you can customize, dissect and use his grooves and drumming brilliance to inspire or create your next grand metal composition.

Commented Toontrack: "We here at Toontrack also decided that since our company has such deep roots in the metal music community, we are going to dedicate an entire month to it! So, November is officially 'Metal Month' exclusively at Toontrack. Nothing but new metal products, metal artists, metal interviews, and metal mayhem all month long. So throw your devil horns up in the air, turn the music to eleven, and make sure you log on to beginning November 1 to be a part of the metal celebration. Metal fans, November is for you!"
