Such a tragedy. David was a awesome guy and his band was really starting to take off. We've played a few shows with Woods and my condolences go out to his family, friends and all the guys in the band. The metal community has truly lost a great musician and vocalist. R.I.P. Brother and see you on the other side....
I've never heard of this dude before or the band but thats a bummer deal to die in an auto accident. But what i'm more distraught over is that there is still only 6 comments about Great White reforming with Jack. C'mon people that is seroiusly great breaking news that everyone should be exstatic about. That to me deserves more comments than this. WHAT!!!!!
I was fortunate enough to meet David and the guys when they were in Barrie over the summer. Got my Woods IV signed by them all. I am also in the middle of reviewing the Woods V: Grey Skies and Electric Lights and I have to say all the lyrics and music just got a TON more haunting like hellrat was saying. I'm not sure if it was released but if it ever is, the song "Finality" is one song you need to hear. I'm wearing my Woods of Ypres Green shirt to work tomorrow with pride. RIP.
I just can't believe some azzhole used this thread as a platform to bemoan the fact that the "reformation" of GREAT WHITE only got 6 responses!!! WOODS OF YPRES were on the verge of greatness and David Gold is now dead!!! Whoever you are, take your head out of your azz, place a gun at your temple, and pull the trigger.
Wow, just can't believe this bullsh**. Yet again another guy I could call a friend or brother has left this world. Hope his family and friends see he has fans around the world. I'm in the states myself but just damn a true great loss, I used his music in the gym, to get me through life and also playing lead guitar liked to try an figure out his awesome riffs an solos! I could definitely relate to a lot he says in his music. I'm an atheist and I think Dave was to, RIP Dave if only could read the comment.
Trollz will be trollz i reckon. Great white was way overrated. And my regrets I never got any recorded music from woods of ypres when they came through naptown they played with harakiri and dearnt I think they didnt even have a demo yet im thinking it was 2001 i always thought they were one of the best canadian metal bands i ever listenend to other than neuraxxis which i had the pleasure of seeing live as well.
Would someone on here take some fvcking initiative and provide the decency of getting rid of fvcking FRESHFISTUPVENGIEVAGGIE'SFVCKINGHAGGARDHOLE's irrelevant and socially stunted 'comments'?
Show some goddamned integrity 'Underground...jesus fvcking christ
Go ahead and clear this notice as well, once you've taken care of the pertinent business
Please stop, Great White was a subpar band. Please have some decency. Why would you be such a douche in the first place? Were you molested or something? I bet your repetoire of indeceny cleans up when your in public. If MetalUnderground was a tangable place you'd be without teeth right now.. And MetalUnderground you censor the word "cocking" which refers to loading a firearm but allow such disrespect?
RIP David Gold, I was just starting to really get into this band.....
Listening to" I was buried in mount pleasant cemetery "
I s even more haunting now.
As for GW they should NEVER reform...I was listening to slayer when GW were at the height of their sh**tiness..if that gives ya a clue to how much I do not care for them...poster 20 should be taken out and shot to prevent further breeding of disrespectful idiots.
Once again RIP David Gold ,My condolences to your friends,Family and all loved ones.
