Testament: Schlagzeuger Gene Hoglan hat die Band verlassen

Next.

VON AM 22/01/2022

Kombiniert insgesamt zwölf Jahre lang war Gene Hoglan von 1996 bis 1997 und schließlich ab 2011 der Mann mit den Drumsticks in den Reihen der Thrash Metal-Titanen von Testament. Doch damit ist jetzt Schluss, wie die Band in einem längeren Statement verlauten lässt.

Hoglan und die US-Kombo haben sich demnach im Guten getrennt. Über einen entsprechenden Nachfolger lassen uns die Mannen bislang noch im Unklaren; wie es sich liest, scheint man bereits aber jemanden für die Position gefunden zu haben.

Testament über den Split mit Drummer Gene Hoglan

„To all our Testament fans around the world,

First off, we are beyond grateful to have had Gene Hoglan behind our drum throne for ten years, several albums and countless tour dates. Unfortunately, our brother Gene’s additional tours and solo endeavors in 2022 conflict insurmountably with Testament’s rescheduled dates after two years of lost time due to the pandemic. Rather than Testament having to reschedule upcoming dates (yet again) or Gene having to cancel his own plans, we have decided to amicably part ways.

We understand that this announcement will cause some disappointment but rest assured: There is no drama, only the best of vibes between us. As Gene embarks upon a new chapter, we thank him from the bottom of our hearts for bringing the most powerful drum beats to Testament and heavy metal. We have no doubt he will continue to bring it as only he can. Gene will always be family and we ask all of you to join us in wishing him only the best of luck going forward!

Also rest assure that we will continue to deliver yet another top notch addition to Testament and will reveal soon! We will see you all on tour very soon!

– Testament“
