GUITARCEPTION: THE TESSERACT DRUM CHALLENGE.

For the past couple of Metal Months, we’ve brought you Drumception and asked you interpret a drum track by writing music to it. This year’s contest is a little different than the previous two years: this time, you’re writing the DRUMS! That’s right, TesseracT guitarists Acle Kahney and James Monteith have written a guitar riff that needs drums to go along with it, and it’s up to you to come up with the gnarliest drum groove you can! As usual, when it comes to TesseracT, it’s a little tricky. The riff can be interpreted in numerous ways, so let your creativity run free on this one!

Program, play an e-kit or, by all means, play it yourself if you’re a drummer and up to the challenge! Don’t have a drum production tool yet? Try the free EZdrummer 2 10-day trial version here.
