Toontrack has launched its annual Metal Month campaign with the first of several new releases through the month, an all-new expansion for the company’s massively popular drum software EZdrummer 3.

Captured at the Ocean Sound Recording studio in Norway, the Post-Metal EZX features vibrant, big, dark and earthy drums inspired by the post-metal sound. Sampled by Thomas Hedlund of Cult of Luna, the EXZ includes 4 complete drum kits and 2 additional kit configurations recorded with snare wires off.

This EZX for EZdrummer 3 presents a collection of big, earthy and mercilessly vibrant drums, tailored for atmospheric, slow and organic-sounding metal. It includes four unique kits, two further configurations captured with snare wires off, several extra kit pieces and sets of big and dark cymbals. All instruments were sampled by Thomas Hedlund of the band Cult of Luna, one of the absolute forerunners in today’s budding post-metal scene.

In a genre where feel, context and fearless exploration of ebb-and-flow-like contrasts play equal parts, uncompromising drum dynamics are key. Welcome to the embodiment of just that: an EZX featuring a palette of kits that span the entire dynamic range, recorded at a studio that virtually balances on the edge of the world and against a backdrop of the most savage display of nature’s majesty.

The Post Metal EZX is available to purchase at PluginFox and from the Toontrack store for $89 USD.
