    Gene is a beast. I saw him lose a stick and not a beat missed.

    For the first moment I read the title as "Hulk Hogan" and said to myself " WTF " :D

    I met him after seeing Meshuggah at Slim's earlier this month. I thought to myself, "Wait is that Gene Hoglan... nah can't be." I went closer and holy fuck it was him! I introduced myself, shook his hand, gave him my business card, and then took my picture with him (It'll be emailed to me.) It was so amazing! And so random! :kickass:

    I've been wanting that for a while... Deliverance is the closest I guess. Or The Grand Conjuration?

    Yeah, either of those probably, but that whole 'polyrhythm' thing (even though it isn't truly polyrhythmic, but anyway) is starting to get boring, even with Meshuggah - they have written far better riffs before.

    Gene Hoglan. Darkness Descends. Symbolic. City. That pretty much sums it up.

    Gene is amazing, but I could never see him joining the band full time. I'm so glad that Axe joined, I hope he stays until the end. In fact, I want the current line up to stay until the end.

    I was just thinking that Jason Rullo would've been a kickass addition to Opeth. The stuff he does with Symphony X is just spectacular. Of course, that never would've happened but it would've been nice to see.

    Oh, that's okay. I think he's better anyway, and yes, I've listened to Gene's playing alot.

    Big Gene is one of the top drummers out there, and has been for quite some time. There's a reason he is sought after by so many...
