Founding NIHILIST Guitarist Passes Away

According to Tartarean Desire, former NIHILIST guitarist Leif "Leffe" Cuzner recently passed away in Montreal, Canada. Leif was one of the founding members of NIHILIST, the legendary Swedish death metal act he formed in 1987 together with Alex Hellid (ENTOMBED) and Nicke Andersson (THE HELLACOPTERS, ex-ENTOMBED). NIHILIST more or less evolved into ENTOMBED over time.

After parting ways with NIHILIST, Leif played with another Stockholm-based death metal act called RAPTURE until he moved to Canada in 1990. RAPTURE would later turn into LOBOTOMY.
