Eyal Levi, critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, producer and engineer at the famous Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Fla., has announced a follow-up to his successful creativeLIVE “Digital Drums with EZDrummer” course, which he hosted last month. This new, two-and-a-half hour instructional course, focusing specifically on programming heavy metal beats, will be held at 9pm EDT on Friday, October 11 for a $40 fee. There will be a running Q&A throughout, and anyone who signs up for the follow-up class will receive the original, seven hour course for free.

“This is for those of you who wanted more specifics on metal beats during my creativeLIVE class (http://www.creativelive.com/courses/digital-drums-ezdrummer-eyal-levi),” said Levi. “Or if you just want to rule at it period. We will cover everything from blastbeats to slow doom crushers.”
As a part of the Audiohammer family, Levi has worked with such acts as Job for a Cowboy, August Burns Red, Six Feet Under, Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Deicide, Death Angel, I Killed The Prom Queen, The Contortionist, Motionless In White, Arsis, Demon Hunter, Firewind, and Charred Walls of the Damned. His latest credits include The Black Dahlia Murder, Battlecross, DevilDriver and Reflections.
Aside from his work behind the glass, Levi has toured the world and released three studio albums with Daath, while also releasing an instrumental guitar album with Emil Werstler on Magna Carta called Avalanche of Worms.
Born in Atlanta, Ga. into a musical family, Levi was already playing violin and piano by the age of three, and composed his first symphonic work when he was just 17. In 1999 he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass., before leaving to return to Atlanta in 2001 where he founded his own recording studio.
In 2010, Levi moved to Orlando, Fla. where he joined forces with Jason Suecof (Trivium, Chimaira) and Mark Lewis (Deicide, DevilDriver) at Audiohammer Studios. There he helped to both expand and enrich their facilities by adding a magnificent drum room, two new control rooms and sleeping quarters for the bands.
