During an appearance on this past Sunday's (September 8) Heavy Metal Mayhem radio show, drummer Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT, DETHKLOK, FEAR FACTORY, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) spoke about the status of the planned reunion of his former band, classic late '80s / early '90s California thrashers DARK ANGEL. The interview can now be streamed here:
"We are trying to see if it can be something that we can all pursue. We all are in discussions," Gene said. "[Original DARK ANGEL vocalist] Don [Doty] got a little rambunctious, a little enthusiastic with some of the things that he put there [on the Internet regarding a possible reunion]. And we had to speak to Don for the first time, I guess, to get him to go, 'Hey, wait a minute…'"
He continued: "We all understand - we all should understand - that this isn't really just a matter of calling up the guys, saying, 'Let's put the band back together,' and then doing it. There's a lot more involved with it than that. So we're in talks and we're trying to see the future in it. And things are going well. We're all entertaining the idea, definitely, rather than somebody going, 'Nope. I'm not gonna do it.'
