The Return Of The Beast...

If you are looking for a collection of drum loops and samples for metal and hard rock, your prayers may have been answered with the release of Beta Monkey’s Double Bass Mania II: The Return of the Beast. We thought it best to let them describe it in their own words so here goes…
Louder. Faster. Heavier. You asked for it and now you got it. Double Bass Mania II: The Return of the Beast takes it over the top with a slamming onslaught of fast and furious double bass grooves. With 800+ double bass grooves, groove variations, fills, one shots, and samples, Double Bass Mania II is your only choice for creating heavy metal tracks. Whether you need modern metal grooves in the vein of Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, or Children of Bodom or if you are more the old-school type into Slayer, Pantera, or early Metallica, Double Bass Mania II is designed for one thing: to rip off your fucking face. Powerful slamming tracks covering all styles of double bass playing (yes, there are blastbeats) - you will not find anything like this anywhere. Period.
