GENE HOGLAN, DON DOTY On DARK ANGEL Reunion Rumors

Recently, some rumors have been spreading across the web about an upcoming Dark Angel reunion. Drummer GENE HOGLAN and vocalist Don Doty have taken the time to make a statement addressing these rumors, which will hopefully put any confusion to rest.

Gene states,

“Howdy everybody. Now that I’m off the road for a few minutes, I’d like to address these Dark Angel rumors that are flying around. Yes, we have been talking about doing something next year, and although it looks like possibly some festivals could be in the works, right now it’s just speculation. Don Doty and myself have been in contact for the first time in many many years, and it’s been great to re-connect with my old friend. Fortunately, I’ve remained great buddies with all the DFA guys after all these years, and we do try to stay in contact with each other and see each other when we can, especially since we are all spread out over the Western US. We are indeed discussing the possibility of a reunion, and yes, the DFA guys are well aware of all of my other commitments, such as Testament, Dethklok and the like. So again, we are moving forward s-l-o-w-l-y, with hopes to getting Dark Angel’s wings off the ground for festival season in 2014.”

Dark Angel vocalist Don Doty adds,

“Members of Dark Angel are currently sitting down for talks for a reunion. This will be for the year 2014. All are excited. I was talking on a radio show recently and had said that all members would be attending, this statement may have been misunderstood. Myself, Gene, Mike, Eric and Jim are talking and when talks are complete a statement will be given. We will know more in the months to come. We will let you know as it unravels.”

Earlier this month, GENE HOGLAN announced the THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE, an intimate gathering of metal fans brought together to celebrate the legacy and career of one of metal’s most legendary drummers. Hoglan is pleased to announce two additional dates being scheduled as part of this touring event. Fans can now witness THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE on October 17 in Coralville, IA at West Music Coralville, and on October 19 in New Berlin, WI at Cascio Interstate Music. These dates come in addition to Hoglan’s September 20 appearance at Vern’s Tavern in Calgary, AB. See below for times and details and stay tuned for more dates coming soon.

GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE Appearances:

9/20 – Calgary, AB @ Vern’s Tavern – Part of Noctis 666 Metal Festival and Conference – 3:00PM

10/17 – Coralville, IA @ West Music Coralville – Signing TBA – 6:00PM

10/19 – New Berlin, WI @ Cascio Interstate Music – Part of Drummer Fest / FREE – 11:00AM

GENE HOGLAN came up with this concept to give the fans what they want: the ultimate “Gene” experience. In addition to telling personal stories, as mentioned above, Hoglan will reveal some of his secret techniques and tips to help all drummers and musicians of all levels. More information will be announced soon in regards to THE GENE HOGLAN EXPERIENCE.

Gene Hoglan is heralded and  is inspirational to many, even outside of his drumming and now celebrates a 30-year career in music as metal’s most in-demand legendary drummer. Hoglan is the only metal drummer to accomplish two #1 records on the Rock charts in 2012 with Testament’s Dark Roots Of Earth and Dethklok’s Dethalbum III. Testament’s Dark Roots Of Earth also went to #9 in the world and #12 in the US, and Dethklok’s Dethalbum III also went to #10 in the US, and thru a major lifestyle change has beat diabetes and lost over 160 lbs.

SHAI HULUD Announce Tour Dates with MADBALL, THE OVERSEER

Shai Hulud will return to the road this Fall for dates throughout the East Coast. Fans can catch Hulud throughout October on select dates with Madball, The Overseer, Octaves, and Face All Fears. The full list of dates and the lineup for each show can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/shaihuludofficial.


Reach Beyond the Sun, the fourth entry in Shai Hulud’s storied catalog, will see was released in February of 2013. The album was produced by current New Found Glory guitarist, Chad Gilbert, and notably, vocalist on Hulud’s debut LP Hearts Once Nourished With Hope And Compassion. In addition to producing, Gilbert also returned to sing on the album – his first offering of recorded vocals with the band in over a decade. Not unlike Shai Hulud’s previous releases, Reach Beyond the Sun was born of several years of toiling before ever entering a studio. The band’s previous effort, Misanthropy Pure, a polished, metallic and frenzied piece of masterwork, is contrasted by the much more visceral, instinctively compositional songs found on Reach Beyond the Sun, an embracement of the raw Hardcore/Punk elements that sit at the cornerstone of the band’s influences.

Longtime bass player Mad Matt Fletcher asserts, “Anyone who really knows the band will agree this album is our definitive sound, encompassing all of our different influences and styles.”

He conclusively reiterates, “Yep, this sounds like Shai Hulud.”

“Not only have they reaffirmed their place as hardcore royalty, they have released what could arguably be considered the best album of their career and the best album the genre has seen in years” – SputnikMusic.com

“a cathartic, anthemic return to strength and a testament to never forgetting your roots”- Terrorizer

“there’s no questioning Shai Hulud’s intensity” – Metal Hammer

“a renewed sense of frantic, guttural aggression – that makes Reach feel fresh in spite of the scene that’s changed so radically around it.” The Onion AV Club

DISSENSION Announce Debut Album Release Date, Streaming Title Track

amr_logo_smal_570Montreal, QC based metal band DISSENSION is proud to announce the upcoming release of their debut album ‘Of Time And Chronic Disease’ digitally worldwide on September 10 through Believe Digital along with it being sold physically on vinyl.

Sharing the stage with international heavyweights like Tyr, Threat Signal and Cryptopsy plus performing in front of their hometown crowd at Heavy MTL 2011 along with recently being finalists at Wacken Metal Battle Canada, Dissension’s eclectic mix of thrash, black and power metal attacks the darker side of human nature, reaching epic heights and somber depths. Their debut’s ten brutal assaulting tracks were produced by Kevin Jardine of Uplift Productions, (Slaves on Dope, What Comes To Life, One) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Priestess, Half Moon Run).

Dissension is now streaming their first single off the debut at the following links below.

Vocalist / guitarist Nathan Afilalo comments:

“Having been a band for about six years, we have long anticipated the great day where we could let our music take flight upon the winds of the world.  With that in mind, Of Time and Chronic Disease is a summation of our music since it contains some of our very earliest songs to some of our latest. The album has to be taken as a whole, as the individual songs all represent a different facet of the whole that is our music. It’s like a hydra, the beast can only truly be slain if you remove all of its heads and immerse yourself in the dark pools of its blood.”

The band will be holding CD launch in Montreal, QC on September 13th at Foufounes Electriques with local support from Skeleris, Murtenscythe, Intonate, Citizen Vicious.
