For musicians and producers seeking the definitive sound of this drumming titan, Ugritone's Drums Against Humanity offers a groundbreaking sample library that captures not an emulation, but THE SOUND of Inferno himself.
In this exploration, we delve into the depths of Drums Against Humanity, examining its recording process, unique features, and its ability to authentically encapsulate the spirit of Inferno's drumming. We also cast a glance at the library's GUI graphics, a snapshot immortalizing the stage setup of Behemoth's 2022 Euro Tour.
The Pursuit ov Authenticity: Inferno's Signature Sound
Countless drum libraries may attempt to emulate the ferocious sound of Inferno, but Drums Against Humanity stands apart as a true sonic representation of the master himself. By meticulously capturing every nuance and detail of his drumming, the library offers an authentic and unparalleled experience for musicians and producers alike.
Inferno's choice of Pearl Drums has long been a crucial component of his signature sound.

The library's inclusion of these iconic drums allows users to tap into the very essence of what makes Inferno's drumming stand out, forging their own creations with the same tools used by the master.
Complementing the powerful foundation provided by the Pearl Drums, Inferno's use of Paiste Cymbals adds a crucial layer of nuance and accentuation to his drumming. Drums Against Humanity faithfully captures the distinctive shimmer and attack of these cymbals, allowing musicians and producers to explore the full range of Inferno's cymbal arsenal.
A Symphony ov Destruction: Recording at Tallpine Records
To faithfully reproduce the essence of Inferno's drumming, Drums Against Humanity was recorded at Tallpine Records in Kolbudy, Poland, the same studio where Behemoth's Opvs Contra Natvram (2022) album was recorded. This location, steeped in the history and spirit of extreme metal, provided the ideal environment for capturing the authentic sound of Inferno's drumming. The library, recorded under the expert guidance of Haldor Grunberg from Satanic Audio, ensures that the final product is a true testament to Inferno's iconic style and sound.
Aeons ov the Past: Iconic Snares and Beyond
As an homage to Inferno's storied career, Drums Against Humanity features the snares used on two seminal Extreme Metal albums: Behemoth's "The Apostasy" and Decapitated's "Carnival is Forever." By incorporating these instruments into the library, Drums Against Humanity not only pays tribute to the past but also provides musicians with the tools to forge their own path in the footsteps of a legend.
