Gene Hoglan and Testament part ways

Gene Hoglan and Testament have parted ways amicably. Hoglan is always the type to sort of fly in for awhile and help a band make their best records in years (see Fear Factory’s Mechanize) and knocked it out of the park on all the recent Testament releases.

That said, I have been listening to The Gathering the most lately and would love to see them somehow get Dave back for another round behind the throne.

The band issued a statement:

To all our Testament fans around the world,

First off, we are beyond grateful to have had Gene Hoglan ”Official Page” 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 Hoglan 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 assured 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
