DESTRUCTION Frontman: PIGGY 'Will Stay In My Metal Heart Forever'

August 29, 2005

DESTRUCTION bassist/vocalist Marcel "Schmier" Schirmer has issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:

"I feel really sad, empty and distraught about the too early loss of VOIVOD guitar player Denis 'Piggy' D'Amour!

"Another pioneer of metal has left the stage but the legend of Piggy will live forever!

"He was one of the most down-to-earth guys I've ever meet in the music business. He'll stay in my metal heart forever, that's for sure!

"I'm speechless, hard to describe my feelings with some useless words!

"Our very first American show was at the World War III festival in Montreal 1985 together with VOIVOD. I'll never forget those days, we had some great parties together!

"He was one of a kind! A honest personality in a scene where others built their sucess on fake image and scandals!

"R.I.P., Piggy! Brother, initiator, personage — you have set a shining example for many of us!

"Our next shows will be to your dedication, bro, and to the ones of the great VOIVOD!"
