MusicRadar has announced the release of a collection of 252 free heavy metal drum loops in high quality audio format.

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!

  1. Lovely old school sound – the loops actually feel as if a real person played them, unlike that nauseating polished EZ Drummer crap.
