This is a varied collection of drum loops in this most brutal of genres - both acoustic and electronic beats are included, and they come at a wide range of tempi.
What you need to know
The samples are split into two folders: acoustic and electronic. Each of these contains sub-folders that are labelled by tempo.
All the samples are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The heavy metal drum samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
