Léo Isnard comments: “Not counting the interludes, this is the shortest track of our new album. For me, it represents a perfect synthesis of all that I like to play in this band: doom parts, blast beats, and some space to add a more personal touch. And of course, nothing is better than those fast blast beats before the end of this song!”

The French cultists have previously painted the glorious horrors and eldritch pleasures contained on their new full-length ‘EOD – A Tale Of Dark Legacy’ into the murky shape of a lyric video directed and produced by Hugo Aribart based on the artwork of Jeff Grimal. This clip for “When the Stars Align” can be viewed at the link below.

THE GREAT OLD ONES comment: “We are proud to present our new lyric video for the song ‘When the Stars Align’. The clip is based on the amazing artwork of Jeff Grimal and represents a faithful celebration of Lovecraft’s entities, ancient and unspeakable, who will one day return to the place which they have left. Come and see us live on a journey to the other side of the mirror. Join us in veneration of the true masters of the universe.”

DISPERSE present drum play-through video


Following the prog shooting stars highly successful and at many venues sold out European tour with PLINI, DISPERSE drum progeny, Mike Malyan has released a new play-through video of the track “Surrender” taken from the band’s current full-length ‘Foreword’. The multi-cam video is now streaming at the link below.

The stick artist comments: “The song ‘Surrender’ is one of my favourites to play from ‘Foreword’. The challenge of its intricate dynamics in the simpler sections almost trumps the later parts with the complex time signatures. Thankfully there is a mini drum solo section at the end to make up for all of the earlier difficulties.”

GENE HOGLAN Reveals STRAPPING YOUNG LAD “Skeksis” Drum Playthrough Video from Upcoming DVD


New DVD, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two, out February 3, 2017
Available for Pre-Order NOW:
North America/Worldwide: http://www.hoglanindustries.com
Canada: http://www.reversedrecords.com

Featuring Interviews with Members of ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT and More

GENE HOGLAN‘s highly-anticipated second DVD, The Atomic Clock: The Clock Strikes Two, is due to be released on February 3, 2017 and will feature the Clock himself breaking down some of his favorite beats, telling stories and playing along with tracks from several of his most legendary projects, including Strapping Young Lad, Testament and Death.

In advance of next week’s release, Hoglan is revealing what many extreme music fans may consider the most anticipated playthrough from the DVD, Strapping Young Lad’s “Skeksis” from their Billboard-charting 2005 release, Alien. Take a look at the blazing playthrough now via GENE HOGLAN’s YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/-eaIvh6ELVg

GENE HOGLAN recalls the original “Skeksis” writing and recording sessions: “Devin [Townsend] and I wrote the tune in late summer, early fall of ’04, at this shabby downtown Vancouver rehearsal space that kinda represented where we were both at mentally in our lives. I remember him mentioning that he’d love to have an ‘Almighty PunchDrunk’ (one of my all-time favorite bands whom I’ve also drummed for) feel and vibe to whatever was about to come out of us. To me, that meant to include, ‘the PunchDrunk beat’, which is this great, samba-esque, Latin-feel beat (that I am sure has a name, I’d love to know it) which PD proudly stole from the legendary Canadian band The Smalls. I’m sure you’ve all heard it a time or two.

Dev and I played around the beat the whole song, getting closest to it in the chorus, then really sinking into it in the last minute or so, in the part I refer to as the “girl fight” part, because that’s what it sounds like Dev is saying there. It is such a fun beat to play, and a real satisfying denouement to the song. A moment of crowning glory to a ruling tune. The version on the new DVD is a completely re-envisioned mix, where the vocals and samples are absent, really bringing out the rhythm guitars and basic tracks.”
