At long last, legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Death, Dark Angel, Dethklok, plus a coffee break in just about every other metal band on the planet!) has released his very first DVD, “The Atomic Clock”! Hooray! Is it instructional? Who Knows? Is it educational? Who cares, it’s GEEEEEEEEENE, so it’s bound to be entertaining as hell!!!
On this disc, Hoglan will break down what makes ‘The Clock’ tick, his style, his philosophies, especially his quirks and cheats. Will he break down your favourite ‘Gene Patterns’? Hell no! Will he clog your brain with countless dull rudiments? No way! Will he blow your mind with 9 complete songs from his upcoming projects? Hell yes he will! You’ll see an-hour-and-a-half of wicked Gene-playing, plus the disc is chock full of ‘extras’! What other instructional discs have ‘EXTRAS’, we ask? None that we know of! That’s why this is no mere ‘instructional’ disc, it’s way more than that! Yippee!
Filmed in magnificent ‘Enormo-Vision’, the big man will fill the screen with knowledge put to the test from his 3 decades of drumming. Do you need to be a schooled drummer to appreciate it? What are ya, nuts? You don’t even have to be a DRUMMER to enjoy this DVD! All you need is two hours of couch time, armed with your sense of fun!
Quick Fact: Hoglan was nominated in the “Best Drummer” category at the second annual 2010 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
