Default Re: Gene Hoglan

Agree with the above statement, I remember being 17 and hearing Darkness Descends when it first came out in '86, that record blew me away, virtually nothing had come close to the impact that record had at the time for me, nothing that came before it came close to its brutality,unfortunately it was overshadowed in the media by Reign In Blood however for song complexity and structure if not production i feel that this record pipped Slayer's offering......just.... and it was all down to Gene's virtuoso performance, the guy was 17 and played better then than most metal drummers will ever play, the guy was and is raw talent, his type and certainly his style of playing is almost impossible to learn or teach for that matter......... a drumming legend.
