“I am proud to be a part of the Platinum Samples family and am thrilled to see this project come to fruition”, states Jarzombek. “I had previously worked with Platinum Samples on ‘Joe Barresi Evil Drums’ back in 2006. It was a great experience so I was honored when they asked me if I would be interested in doing a Metal Grooves pack of my own. This is an awesome creative tool that will kick your songs up a whole new level, so if you’ve been looking for a reason to ditch the uninspring old drum machine – now is as good a time as any!”
