METAL BLADE RECORDS Owner Pays Tribute To VOIVOD's Fallen Guitarist

Metal Blade Records CEO/owner Brian Slagel has issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:

"When I first heard the original VOIVOD demo and then their first album for us and their debut as well, 'War and Pain', I knew they would be a great band for a long time. Piggy's guitar playing even way back then was original and powerful. He has influenced so many great players and his legend will only continue to grow in the future. We are so sad at his tragic passing and our thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends."
