The Heretic Drummer Cristobal Dies

On June 13th Cristobal, drummer of the Spanish extreme metal band THE HERETIC, died in his flat due to a an unfortunate home accident. His flat-mate found his body yesterday, June 14th.

The band label comments: "From XTREEM MUSIC we're deeply affected by this loss, since Cristobal wasn't only a great musician, but above all, a more than excellent person of great human quality that only left friends wherever he went. Anyone who had the pleasure of dealing personally with him, can only say good things about Cristobal and for us, whose relationship dates since more than 13 years ago, it's a shock having lost such a great musician and comrade."

"We want to give our deepest condolence to his family, friends and specially his brothers in THE HERETIC (Juan Carlos, Fernando, Javier & Raul), band thanks to which Cristobal can be more than proud of being able to leave an indelible legacy of the highest quality through all their recordings and shows. Needless to say that the reunion show that the band were preparing for the next months where they would present their most recent release "Memorandum (1997-2007)", released just 2 months ago, won't take place and the future of the band remains more uncertain than ever.

"The rest of members of the band are still very affected with this shocking loss, so they haven't been able to update their official website, but anyone who wish to leave their last words to Cristobal, can do it through: www.myspace.com/thehereticofficial"
