Filmed in high definition on a dozen cameras, with studio-mastered audio, this DVD offers a chance to see Gene Hoglan play like never before. Though certainly inspirational for any level of musician, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two is not only for drummers. Gene's easygoing, approachable attitude is readily apparent as he happily tells the viewer stories from his career, chatting as if with old friends about days in the studio or on the road.
An impressive roster of high-caliber musicians also weigh in over the course of the feature, offering stories about Gene and their experiences working with him. Interviews include Scott Ian and Frank Bello of Anthrax, 3 Inches of Blood/Revocation's Ash Pearson, Jason Bittner of Shadows Fall, Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick, and Eric Peterson of Testament, and more.
Testament: "Rise Up," "Native Blood"
Galaktikon: "On My Way"
Meldrum: "Walking Point," "A Toast To Romance"
Strapping Young Lad: "Skeksis"
Death: "Overactive Imagination," and "The Philosopher"
This DVD provides a glimpse into the philosophies, techniques, and history of one of metal's most influential musicians of all time.
