While some of the samples might be a little tricky to creatively manipulate, Nu Metal City v2 makes it very easy to put together convincing metal arrangements.

This disc isn't for lightweights - the style of modern thrash-infused acts like Lamb of God and even the classic crunch of Pantera is strongly in evidence.

However, there are a lot of varied textures within the metal realm that are easily achievable with these kits. Everything has a key and tempo quoted, too, for convenience.
