Toontrack SDX The Metal Foundry review at MusicRadar

Superior Drummer expansion pack of skull-crushing drums.

A decade after the release of their groundbreaking Drumkit From Hell sample library, Toontrack has rolled out The Metal Foundry, which is an SDX expansion pack for their Superior Drummer 2 drum software.

As with the original DFH, top metal producer Daniel Bergstrand engineered the recording, and Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake played all the hits.


  • Expert collection of kits and sounds. 
  • Suitable for more than just metal. 
  • Fair price.


  • Nothing of note.

Our Verdict

An outstanding collection suitable for many genres although it does help that the recording has been engineered with an aggressive sound in mind. The price is hard to argue with, and as an added bonus, the included MIDI holds particular educational value for aspiring metal drummers.
