Legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TESTAMENT, DEATH, DARK ANGEL) recorded all the drums tracks for the self-titled debut album from the Canadian metal/punk crossover band FATTOOTH, due on March 24 via Reversed Records.
Formed by Mihran Boudakian, Hucifer and George Xipoleas, FATTOOTH's work was enough to get producer and Juno Award-winning engineer Rob Shallcross (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, GWAR, MAN MADE MOUNTAINS, MR. PLOW) interested in the project. The guys in Montreal sent Shallcross the material they had recorded and Hucifer started tracking the vocals in Vancouver. Hoglan then flew in and pounded out the drum tracks. After that, the remaining two completed the job that had been started in Magma Studios in January 2008.
The three discovered a suitable replacement for Gene in Costa Dimitroulis and are currently banging out shows to sweaty, drunk, awestruck audiences.
This album will be released in the U.S in conjunction with over 40 dates in 23 states.
