Few producers are cited as pioneers, for having helped shape the sound of a genre or generation of bands. With landmark releases by the likes of Slipknot, Machine Head, Carcass and many others, British Colin Richardson is undoubtedly one of them. Add to that world-class drummer Jason Bowld (Axewound, Pitchshifter), arguably one of the most meticulously crafted studio facilities in the world as well as a handpicked collection of top-shelf drums and you have the key components in the Made of Metal EZX.

The Made of Metal EZX was recorded at Belgium's Galaxy Studios, a recording facility crafted with unparalleled detail. Their wood-lined, hall-like main room, in which four complete kits were captured, bring out the very essence of the instruments. The deep, reverberant presence of the toms, the crisp textures of the cymbals and the piercing attack of the snares and kicks.

Put all this in the powerful framework of EZdrummer 2 and you have the most raging, ear-numbing and dynamic collection of drums for any metal or hard rock production.

Press Quotes

"Each of the five kits in the Made of Metal pack is bangin'. You could drop any one of these into a metal mix and have seriously great results. They’re extremely lifelike and very low-maintenance, which is clutch when you’re not in the mood to be tweaking. Choosing between them will be your hardest task, and you can rest assured that there is no wrong choice" -

"Superb value for money. Nails a nice variety of modern metal drum sounds. Pin-sharp note definition.Toontrack has no shortage of metal sounds in its catalogue, each one produced by world-class people, but think of this as an extra palette" - Rhythm
