Toontrack has announced the release of the Heavy Metal MIDI pack, a collection of drum MIDI grooves by Efraim Juntunen, inspired by classic bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Saxon.

Toontrack Heavy Metal MIDI

This marks the eighty-fifth individual drum MIDI pack in Toontrack’s ever-growing collection of drum MIDI for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3. This also marks the fourth new release during Toontrack’s ongoing Metal Month.

Inspired by the likes of Judas Priest, Manowar, Iron Maiden, Saxon and the wealth of other bands that rose in the wake of the tidal wave that heavy metal stirred up in the early ’80s, this collection of MIDI is a pure homage to the greats.

Expect a hard-hitting and forcefully pounding collection of grooves that draws from a time when heavy metal wasn’t just a style of music – it was a way of life and a religion. You’ll find a plethora of anything from basic bulldozer-heavy grooves to galloping madness, double bass drum frenzies and all the fills to match.

Times may change. Great grooves simply don’t. Welcome to a mauler of a MIDI pack that will hit you and your songs like a proper ram.
