The Gene Hoglan Experience: An Intimate Gathering for Metal Fans

Attendees will be able to meet Gene Hoglan and have access to his exclusive merchandise. He will also be available for questions.

The first appearance will take place as part of the Noctis 666 Metal Festival and Conference on Saturday, September 20 at 3 pm at Vern’s Tavern in Calgary, AB (622 8 Ave SW). Admission to the clinic is included in the conference ticket. Further details are available at Advertisement

These showcases are being planned in celebration of Gene Hoglan’s upcoming DVD, a documentary-style film about the inner workings (personal and technical) of the master of metal drumming himself. This is Gene’s second DVD release, which will be released this fall.

Hoglan is currently gearing up to head out on the road with Testament.
