Transcription By Claudia

I caught up with Unearth vocalist Trevor Phipps recently to discuss the band’s upcoming headlining tour with Darkest Hour, August Burns Red and Suicide Silence, as well as their DVD shoot, the drummer situation, the “metalcore” tag and his thoughts on being a “savior” of North American metal.

In a career that has spanned over twenty years, legendary drummer Gene Hoglan is a true pioneer of the heavy metal plains.  Dark Angel, Testament, Death, Strapping Young Lad?with jobs like this on his resume, chances are you have heard the bludgeoning skinsmanship of Hoglan.  Besides the big-name bands, Hoglan also dabbles in several side projects?both metal and non-metal?which allow him to branch out and explore the many facets of drumming.  Hoglan?s involvement with Devin Townsend both in his solo work and in Strapping Young Lad has been a relationship coming up on ten years with no signs of slowing down. 

Strapping Young Lad unleashed their latest sonic assault, entitled ALIEN, back in March and I got the chance to speak with Hoglan on March 21st?the day before its release.  Having met Hoglan on many occasions at local Vancouver shows, our 95-minute conversation was loose and full of laughs but also packed with insight into his many projects both young and old, as well as touching on Internet rumors, ALIEN, the ?real? Devin Townsend, his audition with Slayer, and many other things?.
