Legendary extreme-metal drummer Gene Hoglan (FEAR FACTORY, DETHKLOK, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TESTAMENT, DEATH, DARK ANGEL) was interviewed this past summer for an episode of "Hard" on the AUX music channel out of Canada. The segment can now be viewed below.
Gene Hoglan recently released his long-awaited instructional DVD, "The Atomic Clock". Available on Hoglan Industries in the U.S. and on Reversed Records in Canada, the disc showcases Hoglan's three decades of experience of performing and recording with the world's most well-known metal bands such as DEVIN TOWNSEND, DARK ANGEL, DEATH, DETHKLOK, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TESTAMENT, ZIMMER'S HOLE, and most recently FEAR FACTORY, along with many others on his resume.
Offering two hours of pure metal drumming fury, Gene shells out his pounding arsenal to drummers and music fans intrigued to understand what makes "The Clock" tick.
Featuring nine full songs from various projects (five from the mighty MECHANISM), plus different improvised solos, in addition to tons of tips and tricks from his personal cache. Watch the Gene fill the screen, sharing his knowledge and putting it to the test.
Hoglan previously stated about "The Atomic Clock", "I am real proud of this thing. A whole lotta love and fun went into the making of it, and I'm real stoked to be bringing it to the public. Those who have seen it have seemed to really enjoy it, and like I've said all along, you don't even have to be a drummer to get a kick out of it, I swear.
"'The Atomic Clock' is two hours of me showing you how I do what I do, without a whole ton of boring, stale rudiments to bog you down. It features nine full songs (five from the mighty MECHANISM alone) from some of my projects, plus a few different improvised solos, and tons of tips and tricks from my arsenal to help anybody out there become a better drummer."
Hoglan was nominated in the "Best Drummer" category at the second annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which took place in April at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. The show was televised on VH1 Classic.
