GENE HOGLAN At VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL DRUM FESTIVAL; Video Footage Available

Legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TESTAMENT, DARK ANGEL, DEATH) made an appearance at this year's Vancouver International Drum Festival on October 30, 2008 at Tom Lee Music in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A three-minute compilation of highlights from Hoglan's clinic can be viewed below.

Hoglan, 41, is acclaimed for his creativity in drum arrangements, including usage of odd devices for percussion effects and his trademark lengthy double-kick drum rhythms (using what he calls "kick triplets"). His highly technical playing is extremely accurate at very high and challenging tempos, earning him the nickname "The Atomic Clock."
