PURE SWEET HELL, the two-man project featuring NEVERMORE drummer Van Williams and multi-instrumentalist Christ Eichhorn, have issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:"One of the metal universe's brightest stars has gone supernova. We in PURE SWEET HELL are heartbroken over the news of Denis 'Piggy' D'Amour's passing. He was a true revolutionary and pioneer of metal guitar playing. His influence is profound and goes much further than anyone will probably ever know, or admit. We would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family, friends and bandmates. We would also like to give respect to our other fallen brothers, their families and friends: Krzysztof 'Doc' Raczkowski (VADER's death metal drum genius) and Ronald Eichhorn (loving and supportive father). "Rest in peace, gentlemen."
