Black Metal with electronics

So being a drummer who plays multiple instruments, i always fashion the idea of making a black metal EP.

I cant play the drums live so I must program them for now.

Any special considerations in terms of drums blast beating away? Should i put a limiter or gate on them, reduce decay, low end on bass drum to not cloud those frequencies? Mixing tips? Things to watch out for? Any tips for recording guitar or bass?

Xasthur, Leviathan, or something similar and your on the right track. 1349, THORNS, EMperor are main influences.I plan to incorporate industrial elements into the black metal sound, similar to THORNS on the "EMPEROR vs. THORNS" ep.

Thanks.

Here for the gear
 

Go Steven Slate for a metal project like that. Some of the kits are more geared towards 32nd/64th notes, blast beats, etc. Tight samples, processed to not be too ringy, and adjustable otherwise.

For industrial sounds, add in some extra samples to a metal kit in ssd, and you got a nice kit to work with for this genre.

For some 80s drums tones that might also work well, there are plenty of old kits available for free download on the internet

Thanks.

the processed to not be too ringy aspect I was thinking would be something to note when making electronic black metal. Thank you and i will check those out as well.
