Are you metal? We mean really metal? Then Sweetwater recommends Toontrack's Metalheads EZX Expansion Pack to add serious drum sounds to your next metal track. Metalheads EZX puts the skills of Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake at your disposal. Plus, Toontrack enlisted the help of Daniel Bergstrand, one of metal's premier producers to oversee the production. Together these two metal giants give you the ultimate in metal drumming sounds. Not only do you have 12 classic Meshuggah songs captured via MIDI by Tomas Haake himself (you can customize, dissect, and use his grooves and drumming prowess in your own metal concoctions), but for the first time ever Toontrack is including separate mix channels in the EZdrummer mixer, with kick and snare drum samples designed by Daniel Bergstrand to augment the recorded drums. Get premium metal sounds with Toontrack's Metalheads EZX Expansion Pack.

You want metal? It's right here.

To a drum noob, having Tomas Haake in my computer, doing whatever I tell him to as far as drums go is incredibly rewarding. I am such a fan of this guy's work and to be able to make use of his beats and techniques is an absolute blast.This sounds fantastic, is easy to use and fills your tracks with HUGE drums....this is metal of the highest degree.

I love this so much, the drums sound amazing, toontrack makes the best products. The metalheads ezx took my music to the next level.

If you write and produce metal/hard music, this expansion is a MUST HAVE. I compared one of my songs side by side, with regular ezdrummer on one track, and metalheads on another, and i was BLOWN AWAY how much better my mix and sound was with this expansion. It takes your drums to a whole new level. Throw a nice compressor on it and you are ready to pump out some sick tracks.
Music background: Metal/rock/industrial/ebm


The sound is amazing. Other than a few kick drum samples this is the only thing I'll ever need. Sequencing is as easy or as intricate as you choose to make it. Have already passed my praises of this to other musicians.

Another awesome EZX

I started with the basic then added the metalhead and funk expansions to my set up. While the regular EZ drummer is good the expansion offers much more realistic sounds on top of the full professional studio sound. I usually use this with a roland v drum set but it also works well using a keyboard/mpc midi device.
