A little while after my last write up about Gene Hoglan, I had the awesome opportunity to speak with him on the phone. Almost a year to the day since our last conversation, a fair amount has gone on in the life of “The Atomic Clock.”
The reformation of Dark Angel has occurred and many fans alike are very stoked about the direction they’re headed. Testament is soon to be in the midst of a new album and Dethklok is doing fun things like playing gigantic comedy festivals.
Not to mention the billion other projects that he has going on, which I listed off to him. I made it about half way before I almost died due to old age. Dude loves to keep busy and we love him for that.
We also covered who Gene would have in his all time super group (and would subsequently fire them) and even touched on why he’s so insane doing double duty all across the world.
Gene is super personable, so if you ever get a chance to chat with him he’ll be more than willing to shoot the shit. We talked for well over an hour about the weather, shows, Christmas and of course, drums, but I had to cut a solid 30 minutes out.
He loves to talk.
I love to listen.
It’s a mutual understanding.
