Drum sounds used by Counterstrike, Current Value, Forbidden Society etc.

I love the really tight, aggressive drums used by producers like those I mentioned, but I can't seem to find any good sounds/samples that are similar. What sort of techniques do they use to get their drums sounding like they do, particularly those metallic snares? For example this song:

Re: Drum sounds used by Counterstrike, Current Value, Forbidden Society etc.

Try looking for sounds that share the same characteristic... so a snare sound where the drummer has hit the rim with the skin of the snare (typical in nu metal, i think i remember bands like Korn/LimpBizkit lol doing it)... giving a metalic snare hit. Compress that sound which will amplify that metalic quality, layer this with a punchy snare hit and u should be on your way...

Examples of the kind of drum samples you're looking at as a potential starting point can be found in the [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
.
It's only a starting point though, there are better samples to be found if you go hunting.

Then its various combinations of layering, overdrive, compression, etc. until you have crafted a finely crafted cascade of filth.

Re: Drum sounds used by Counterstrike, Current Value, Forbidden Society etc.

as said, find the right samples to start off with. if you are describing a sound as metal sounding then look for metal sounding hits, or better still, metal things being hit.
also, layering!!!
layer different parts of different hits to get one sweet hit that you like. and dont be scared to spend hours mastering one hit. once youre finished making this hit you will have it in your library for a lifetime.
if you have recording equipment, record all things metal, or whatever else you want to use. and once again, layer.
and dont be shy when it comes to using non drum sounds in your hits. you cant make drums like you are describing using actual drum hits (sorry meow )

great choice of inspiration by the way. these boys are some of my most highly rated producers.
you wont get to that level easily so work HARD!

Thanks for the advice, some really helpful tips here, and thanks NP for the sample pack and interview.
Good to see some love Parricide!

I'm definitely going to sit and spend a day just toying with ideas and experimenting with percussive sounds.
