On this episode of the Minnesota Drummer Podcast Paul “The Rög” Rogne is joined by Charlie Engen the newest member of Five Finger Death Punch and drummer for Ideology and Scale The Summit. Death Punch has entered the top 10 charts in multiple countries with the new CD and Charlies inaugural CD “F8”. After completing his master’s degrees in percussion performance at the McNally Smith College Of Music in 2015 he took to the internet posting performance videos that quickly gained him attention for his masterful and amazing approach to drumming.
Rög and Charlie talk about his gig with Death Punch, how future Death Punch releases may change with him in the band, drum education, approach, and gear.
This is a 2-part episode. Part one mainly focuses on his time in Five Finger Death Punch and part two focuses more on drumming, his other bands and of course more Death Punch.
The video version of the episodes includes many performances done in the style that gained him so much attention on Instagram. In part one he demonstrates how he plays his stunning double bass work for “This Is War” on Five Finger Death Punch’s latest global, top charting release “F8”.
