The vibe and sound of an historical recording at your fingertips
The Black Album Drums is a drum library for Kontakt 5.5 (full version) inspired by the drum sound featured on the “Black Album” by Metallica from 1991:
it features the kit played on that record, not just the same model, that exact kit (a 1980 Gretsch with Zildjian cymbals and a Tama Bell Brass snare)
2 snares (we added an extra Ludwig 1970s vintage Black Beauty), dual kicks (L&R), 5 toms, 4 crashes, 1 china and an additional ride cymbal.
We approached the production of this library with an enormous amount of respect and love for the sound we wanted to capture: one of the signature sounds of the history of Rock and Metal music. To this extent, we were lucky to track down a large number of information and material regarding the sessions we were inspired by.
Please Enjoy these videos and audio demos describing the features of the library and further info on the recording sessions and see you in a bit, below here.
