Gene 'The Atomic Clock' Hoglan is pulling double duty on the current Testament/Anthrax/Deaeth Angel tour filling in for Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. The Anthrax drummer is taking a short leave from the band's concert tour to be with his mother who is terminally ill. Hoglan commented:

"I am honoured to have been asked by Charlie to fill in for Anthrax in his time of need. We are all Metal Brethren, and this is what we do. Unite for the cause, unite for the fans, and unite for metal. Everybody on this tour has pulled together to keep this tour rollin', everybody is kicking ass. And everyone on this tour is sending our love and respect to the Benante and Bello families. And Charlie, we can't wait to have ya back where you belong, my man. I'm just keeping your throne warm for ya bro."

Gene Hoglan also recently released an instructional DVD tiled "The Atomic Clock." Available at Hoglan Industries in the U.S. and at Reversed Records in Canada, the disc showcases Hoglan's three decades of experience of performing and recording with the world's most well-known metal bands such as Devin Townsend, Dark Angel, Death, Dethklok, Strapping Young Lad, Testament, Zimmers Hole, and most recently Fear Factory, along with many others on his resume.

I didn't know this before the show. Gene was flawless for Anthrax's set. Impressive.
