Here's my latest experiment with drums. I used Superior Drummer with Metal Foundry for the kit, Waves SSL GChannel for compressor/gate/EQ, and Waves TrueVerb for the snares.

I need some feedback. The kicks sounds a bit off to me when I solo it, but no problem when it's in the whole mix. Some people felt the cymbals with a bit too much treble, maybe because they used laptop speakers.

Honestly, it's really hard to tell without it being in a mix, but in general, I really dislike that snare. Super thin and it's horribly evident that it's been programmed. Honestly, all of this sounds really robotic, I think you'd have much better results if you focused on humanizing the tracks, rather than on mixing them at this point.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Another thing to keep in mind is velocities. Most drum samplers sound best when they're played loud. Personally, I set everything to max velocity and reduce and adjust from there. A real metal drummer plays HARD.
