Re: Gene Hoglan
Gene Hoglan is one of my favorite metal drummers, and ranks in my top 5 of all time. His work on Symbolic gets me everytime. The stuff that he does on the bells is rediculous, but it does end up getting sort of repetitive (sorry friend, that album is still a masterpeice). I heard him play first on some song by SYL and I couldn't believe his power and percision. I would die to see him in clinic (if you are reading this Gene, come to Raleigh, NC)! All in all, this man can deliver and it is even more impressive that he plays with ancle weights. Plus, he kind of mentored Dave Lombardo from what I have read and that gets me every time!
P.S- I can't belive he turned down the right to drum in Nile. That would be wicked!
