Trying To Make Heavy Metal Drum Fills (Excision Style Drum Fills)

Super useful, but so hard to make…

So if any of you guys have any tips on how to make drum fills that would be truly appreciated.

Learning how to make your own drum fills I think is better, because if you learn how to make your own you have an almost unlimited source. But if you sample one then it’s limited

Watch some tutorials on metal drum fills. They tend to be just 32nd notes between various toms/snare with double kick pattern underneath. Blast beat is alternating snare/ride with double kick pattern. The real difficulty in doing it on a computer is the lack of dynamics as well as the sound that metal kits usually have

Rip a bunch of shit from black/death metal songs. That’s what I do.
