Gene Hoglan Announces New DVD & Additional 'Experience' Dates

Longstanding Pearl artist and legendary extreme metal drummer, Gene Hoglan, has announced a new DVD being in the works, which is set to fall under the title of "The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two", and is scheduled to be released in the latter portion of 2013.  The new DVD will feature a good portion of the material performed at Gene’s must-see clinics and master classes, along with play-alongs to some of Gene’s most well known tracks from Testament, Death, Meldrum, and several other bands from his expansive resume.  Along with the pre-selected footage already chosen for the DVD, Gene Hoglan is offering fans the unheard of opportunity to choose additional footage that they would like to see on ‘The Clock Strikes Two’.  By simply sending a request to [email protected], fans can request specific play-along tracks from his expansive catalog, including Strapping Young Lad, Dark Angel, Fear Factory, and countless others.  In regards to the upcoming DVD, Gene states:

"I'd like to take a moment to tell you guys about something I'm extremely excited about, my upcoming DVD. It is going to be roughly two hours of awesome footage of not only me behind the kit playing, but tons of interviews with some the greats that I've had the honor to play with over the last couple of years. Guys from Testament, Dethklok, Anthrax, and many others. There will also of course be a load of tips and insights from me to hopefully propel players of all calibers (and instruments, for that matter) up to the next level.”  Gene later goes on to say, "Now, the most exciting part of the 'songs that I play' portion of the program, is that on the new DVD, I will be performing to the actual recorded tracks from some of your favorite bands that I have played for (or am currently playing). That's pretty darned cool, if ya ask me!"  Gene continues, “We at Hoglan Industries are eagerly looking forward to its release before the end of the year, and I will keep everybody regularly updated to its progress in the ensuing weeks."

“The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two”, is now available for pre-sale with several package options to choose from.  For more information, please visit Gene’s website, 

As earlier announced at, Hoglan is also planning a series of appearances under the "The Gene Hoglan Experience" banner, which are set to take place this fall.  ‘The Gene Hoglan Experience’ will include performances, lessons, stories from the road and the studio, an interactive Q & A session, along with the opportunity to meet Gene and discuss all things drums, drumming, and music related- all set in a clinic-type setting.  More information on The Gene Hoglan Experience events can be read here, and a list of upcoming dates can be found below.
