Emailstreetteam@reversedrecords.comand tellGenewhat you want to see on the next DVD, and you will be given the chance to pre-order several packages. There are seven “levels” or packages that fans can pre-order the DVD with.
Hoglantakes a moment to explain the portions of the second“The Atomic Clock”DVD that are set in stone: “I’d like to take a moment to tell you guys about something I’m extremely excited about, my upcoming DVD. It is going to be roughly two hours of awesome footage of not only me behind the kit playing, but tons of interviews with some the greats that I’ve had the honor to play with over the last couple of years. Guys fromTESTAMENT,DETHKLOK,ANTHRAX, and many others. There will also of course be a load of tips and insights from me to hopefully propel players of all calibers (and instruments, for that matter) up to the next level.
“Now, the most exciting part of the ‘songs that I play’ portion of the program, is that on the new DVD, I will be performing to the actual recorded tracks from some of your favorite bands that I have played for (or am currently playing). That’s pretty darned cool, if ya ask me!
“We atHoglan Industriesare eagerly looking forward to its release before the end of the year, and I will keep everybody regularly updated to its progress in the ensuing weeks.”
