Toontrack has launched its annual and always much-anticipated campaign Metal Month. This year’s edition, which is the eleventh consecutive one, will as usual host weekly releases and more through the month.
The first two releases, Duality I EZX and Duality II EZX, hit today. Both EZXs were recorded by engineer Jakob Herrmann (Evergrey, Raised Fist, Amaranthe) and drummer Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra, Mekong Delta) during the same session at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden. In addition, a wide range of deals and added value offers are also available as of now.
Peace and war, love and hate, good and evil, yin and yang, heaven and hell, light and dark, fire and ice – these two EZXs celebrate one of the oldest and most fabled truths known to man: Duality. Welcome to two contrasting batteries of drums that balance on the divide between clamoring sonic ideals – each great on its own, but closing the circle facing one another. Just like in sound as in life, the utter darkness knows no contrast and the blinding light sees no shade – the frontier of new ideas lies open for the taking in the uncharted grayscale in between.
Two kits, twelve (12) bass drums, sixteen (16) snares, four (4) rides, four (4) hi-hats and 26 crash/china/stack/splash cymbals distributed equally over two separate EZXs. Let your drum journey begin.
