    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.

    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.

    This is a great program!

    I highly recommend this program to any person who are wanting drums for their track, demos, ect. Very user friendly and the packs you can buy are great as well! Great sound too. I give this deumming software a 5. Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Great sounds. I use it to enhance recorded kits that maybe weren't in the best shape.

    Metalheads EZX add-on

    They call it Metalheads for a great reason, Tomas Haake is a monster drummer, but man these drum samples are so good I use them on everything. The midi patterns are outstanding if you want those to chop up and make your own, but the drum sound samples are freakin killer! I use these sounds for all kinds of music, they are superbly recorded. This is my favorite add-on.

    Diverse drum kit

    Not only a great metal kit but Si eras enough to write any drum tracks from soft rock to country.

    must have if you love metal

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

    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.

    This piece of software is amazing for the target audience: Metalheads. The samples used are from Thomas Haake (Meshuggah). They sound flawless and I had no trouble getting the software up and running as a plugin for Cubase. I've been wanting a drum program for a while especially for metal and this one attracted me right away. Don't forget that this is an expansion pack and you must have the regular EZDrummer software to use this.

  • from Jacksonville, FL June 7, 2011Music Background:


    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.

    Great addition to Superior Drummer 2!

    Metalheads EZX was totally worth the $39 I paid for it. The samples sound great, they're easy to use, and with SD2, you can tailor the kits however you want. The Ludwig ALONE is worth the $39, it's perfect for a dense metal mix. Toontrack is no joke, they produce the best sounding software drums that I've ever used.

    Say goodbye to boring loops

    It's great for upping your guitar or bass skills . I got this shortly after buying the original ez drummer and was very pleased. It would have gotten 5 stars if it was broken up in grooves like the other titles but I knew what I was buying and love it

    Metalheads EZX

    Very nice sound. I wanted something heavy for dubstep, and this was a good option. I have a few other ezx's (electronic, #1 hits, pop) and this is my favorite.

  • from January 1, 2013Music Background:

    Just good

    Great drums sounds, but i think that could be available more drum loops.

    Metal Mayhem in a Digital Package

    As a songwriter who lives in a small apartment, I can rarely pull out my drum-set and bang away without being cited by the fuzz. When it comes to the intricacies of metal drums, it is a tedious and arduous chore to program the sequences by hand... not to mention that kills the creative mood. That is why the Metalheads EZX is a phenomenal tool. I am able to capture the drum feel I am looking for without much programing allowing me to lay down song ideas quickly and conveniently. It seamlessly integrates into my DAW (Logic Pro) and also is fun to connect to my Roland HD-1 Electric Kit. The potential is there. The only thing I wish this EZX included... some basic song segments versus a breakdown of a specific song.

    Good not great

    The sounds from the drums are amazing if running with an electric kit or making your own loops with it this is the expansion to get. If just looking to expand your drum library midi files then this isn't for you all the new midi files are based around songs from the artists involved which is good though doesn't realy allow you to create your own song with them. The drum sounds though are very worth it if you can catch it on sale for them alone i would go for it.

    Good but not essential

    If you already own Toontrack's Metal Foundry library, this set will provide some more variety.. but is nonessential. I particularly liked the new toms, which have a substantially different character from those in Metal Foundry. If you only own EZDrummer and are looking for metal drums, this will provide more mileage than for those who already have their flagship metal product. I am pleased I bought it on sale, it was worth the discounted price. The sound quality is excellent, as it always is with Toontrack.
