KATAKLYSM: PIGGY Was 'The Nicest Guy You Could Meet'

Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM have issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:

"It's with great sadness that we have learned today that Denis (a.k.a. 'Piggy') has passed away. The impact of his guitar influence was felt worldwide. His work in VOIVOD opened the doors to many metal bands in Canada and gave all of us hope for better things in this scene. He was the nicest guy you could meet and the must humble person you could talk to.

"We are sad to see you go, brother, but you legacy will live forever. We will see you on the other side.

"Our best wishes go out to all in the D'Amour family and to all in our Canadian metal godfathers VOIVOD. Stay strong.

"Like we say back home: Lachez Pas les Gars!!"
