The Canadian Tribute to DEATH and founder Chuck Schuldiner is being held on December 12th at the Theatre Imperial in Quebec City, QC. Organizer Martin Bouchard has issued the following update:

"We have two more names to announce for our ultimate Death tribute gig. The seventh name is a bit less known to the many Death followers but he was a part of their history. On the Perseverance tour, he was Richard Christy's drum tech ... Jonathan Lee. Over the last few years, he's been involved with THE AUTUMN OFFERING (studio) and ACHERON.

The eighth name will complete the lists of drummers. He's one of the most respected drummers in the metal community. He's been a member of CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR and many more ... Nicholas Barker.
Death is one of his favorite bands and Gene Hoglan one of his influence.

Now, a little more about the way things will work on that special night:

VIP ticket holders will be allowed in the venue 30 minutes before the rest of the crowd. They will also be a part of the private party to be held right after the show with all the musicians and organizers. Every VIP will receive a poster of the show to be signed by the musicians of their choice. All proceeds of the night will be donated to the late Chuck Shuldiner's foundation as well as a local foundation taking care of sick children."
