Melbourne wasn’t enough for metalheads, so Gene Hoglan has added a Sydney date to his upcoming drum clinic.

The iconic drummer of Dark Angel, Strapping Young Lad, Death, Dethklok, Fear Factory, Testament and more is hosting an exclusive Sydney drum clinic on October 1 at Sydney premier metal venue, Crowbar.

The Melbourne clinic is on September 30 at the Drumtek Auditorium.

Hoglan says, “I’m really excited for my upcoming Australian clinics (and of course for the Dark Angel shows as well).

“For those who attended my clinic tours in 2001 and 2008, y’all already know that I like to keep them real loose, and real entertaining. And most importantly, real inclusionary for ALL.

“Of course, I am there to impart some wisdom and experience regarding drum techniques and approaches, but I am also all about fun and good times for everyone who attends.

“I purposely ‘wing’ every clinic I’ve ever done, in order to make each one a unique, ‘one-of-a-kind’ experience for everyone.

“Do you have to be a drummer to enjoy a Gene clinic? Hell no, you don’t even have to be a musician.

“Again, indeed I’ll be doling out the drum-tips and secrets, but a Gene clinic goes so far and above that in terms of inclusionary entertainment for all those who are there.

“For those drummers and musicians, it will be one of the best clinics you’ve ever attended. And for the ‘non-musicians who are there, it will be the best clinic you’ve ever been to, flat-out!

“I think everybody who shows up will be walking out with a giant smile on their face, knowing that that was a couple hours very enjoyably spent. And I’m really looking forward to seeing all of you there! Bring your fun pants!”
