BW&BK has learned that WOODS OF YPRES frontman/drummer/founder David Gold was killed in an accident near Barrie, Ontario on December 22nd. Information surrounding his passing has yet to be made public.
A long time friend and supporter of BW&BK, and without a doubt one of the hardest working musicians – independent or signed – on the Canadian metal scene, David will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends in this tragic time.
David’s family will be holding a memorial service in his home town of Sault Ste. Marie, tentatively scheduled for December 28th. Details will be confirmed in the coming days.
