Umeå, Sweden, November 7, 2017.

Today, Toontrack announced the Thrash Metal MIDI pack, a collection of drum grooves and fills inspired by thrash metal from the ’80s through to today. This marks the sixty-seventh individual title in Toontrack’s ever-growing line of drum MIDI and the second release of the company’s annual Metal Month campaign that launched last week.

About the Thrash Metal MIDI pack

This collection of MIDI grooves and fills takes a headfirst plunge into the deep realms of thrash metal music from the late ’80s through to today. Delivering a battery of piercing brutality that encapsulates all the conservative traits of the genre, but also adding elements and ideas that upend the sometimes narrow confines of the style, this pack is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a solid yet versatile foundation of beats for use in any thrash or broad-scope metal context.

Get the classic rampant two-beats and all the pummeling mid-tempo grooves to go with them, but at the same time a creative take on intros, tom grooves and fills. Force, ingenuity and sheer brutality – this collection comes up short on none.
