Five years ago the metal scene lost a champion when David Gold from Woods Of Ypres died in a car crash.

Now on the fifth anniversary of that sad event, bands from around the world are sharing their remembrances of David and their thoughts on how Woods Of Ypres influenced them.

Wallachia had this to say: "December 21st - The longest night of the year. In memory of David Gold from Woods of Ypres. 5 years ago on this date, David was tragically killed in a roadside accident on the Canadian Highway, on the way home to unite with his family for the Holidays.

"David was one of the nicest persons I've ever been in touch with in the underground music scene, and he was so enthusiastic over the fact that his music had reached far up North - to the lands were a lot of his own influences came from.

"Woods of Ypres is by far the band that has influenced me the most during this past decade, and a lot of David's songs and lyrics feel tailor-made to my own personality and life experiences.
Thank you, David, for continuing to inspire and enlighten even now after your passing. Rest in Ypres, my friend."

Vesperia commented: "5 years ago our dear friend and a big supporter of what became Vesperia left this world. Today, his memory remains in his family, friends, fans and the mesmerizing music he created. Rest easy, David."
