Nothing helps promote a drum software like having its creator, Soilwork's Dirk Verburen, show you what it (and he) can do. If you liked Tootrack's Drum Kit from Hell program designed by Meshuggah's Tomas Haake with contributions from Fear Factory's Gene Hoglan, you'll love Verbeuren's custom midi and presets in the latest version of Toontrack's Metal Foundry.


For those who think extreme-metal drumming lacks groove, Verbeuren proved them wrong.

The fill and accents up top nicely complemented Verbeuren's staccato pedal work.
