Sometime in August, Voivod guitarist Denis D’Amour (a.k.a. Piggy) fell ill to cancer. Later, on August 26th, he succumbed to his illness. This really blows. Denis was an amazing guitarist. He made overrated players Kirk Hammet and Kurt Cobain seem like they were playing with broken fingers. He also had more talent in his c**k than any AND every nu-metal, metalcore, Christian metal, emo, pop, rap, and pop-punk artist COMBINED. He is gone but CERTAINLY not forgotten. (Damn, why are so many metal giants dying? Why can’t cancer, alcoholism, murderers, natural disasters, etc. have killed f***s like 50 cent or Ashlee Simpson?) Buy this album NOT just because it’s great, but also because to kepp Piggy’s memory alive. Here are some instructions…
1. Put this CD in your stereo.
2. Crank the volume up to maximum.
3. BLAST the song “Gasmask Revival”.
R.I.P. Denis “Piggy” D’Amour
1960 – 2005
Now if you excuse me, I’ll get my hands on my copy of this CD and listen to the solos that are no more…
