Former Gorguts And Negativa Guitarist Remembered

Quebec label PRC Music has issued a statement about the passing of noted metal guitarist Steeve Hurdle. Steeve was 41 when he passed away on May 20th due to complications from surgery. Hurdle was last known for the two bands that he was a founding member of, Purulence and Negativa, but he first gained fame for playing guitar with Quebecois band Gorguts on its third release, "Obscura." He was also a member of Blind Witchery, Chaos and Infinite Wonder. Here is the statement that Remi from PRC Music has issued:

"Losing a friend like Steeve is a shock for me. We knew, cheered for and supported each other for the last 23 years. Steeve was wholehearted: a true musician, a true passionate being. He was gearing up for the next chapter of NEGATIVA. We were discussing it after deciding to reedit the first mini-CD: studio, promo, events, concerts, etc. We were getting ready to work together, just like in the good old days of PURULENCE. I was really excited at this perspective, but mostly, I was looking forward to sharing laughs, ideas and all these moments where you know you are at the right place, the right moment with the right person.'

Thank you for crossing my path, Steeve. Rest in peace, Brother." RĂ©mi - PRC MUSIC

A fan page has been set up on Facebook to remember him by, and to send condolences to his family and friends. You can view pictures and videos of Steeve at PRC Music.
