Drummer Gaetan "Gate" Bourassa of the cult Canadian death/thrash band AGGRESSION passed away in Laval, Quebec, Canada at age 43. Autopsy revealed that he suffered a heart attack caused by a heavy intake of a controlled substance.

Commented AGGRESSION guitarist Denis "Sasquatch" Barthe: "Gate was an outstanding drummer. He came from the John Bonham school of drummers, so when we asked him to play faster, he did. However, he kept hitting just as hard as when he played slow. Seeing guys like Gene Hoglan [STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DARK ANGEL, DEATH, TESTAMENT] or Reed St. Mark [CELTIC FROST] drooling over his drumming abilities always had Gate puzzled. He would say: 'I don't even know what I'm doing, guys. I don't even have time to think or breathe."

The kamikaze drumming is probably the best aspect of that album.

Add Vinny Daze and that Hateplow dude to the list.

And how... really kind of blows (pun?) though, but he's made his mark here on earth. Good lord do I love Aggression, and Gate's frenetic drumming is a big reason why.

*listens to "The Final Massacre"*

RIP Forgotten Skeleton!

At least I've seen them live once. Could not twice because of SACRIFICE show (which made me miss D666 in New York too).
