FXpansion and Dan Foord (Sikth, Krokodil) teamed up to produce a BFD3 Groove Pack loaded with progressive, modern and technical metal grooves. Dan Polyrhythmic Metal contains more than enough grooves and fills for any songwriter to quickly create fully authentic technical metal drum tracks.
With over 500 grooves in total, each of the included 26 palettes contains related grooves and fills to help you construct drum tracks quickly and efficiently. Each groove features techniques Dan regularly uses, including:
- Beat displacement and modulation
- Related tempo and time signatures
- Varied orchestration
- Ghost note grooves
- Paradiddle and linear fills
- Single stroke rolls
“I wanted to create a BFD Groove Pack that would be instantly identifiable as modern tech metal.” Says Foord, who has been at the forefront of progressive metal drumming for more than a decade. “Polyrhythms in particular form the basis of this style and 3 over 4 most of all. I can honestly say you won't find a more comprehensive set of 3 over 4 polyrhythmic grooves and fills anywhere.”
Dan Foord Polyrhythmic Metal is available now as a download-only product from the FXpansion web shop.
Pricing is $39, €29, £25 inc VAT where applicable
