Lethal guitarist passed away
2012-08-28 by Voivod STAFF | 12 Comments
Eric Cook, guitarist and founding member of Kentucky-based power/prog metallers Lethal, passed away due to cancer.

Lethal were founded in the early '80s by Eric and his brother Glen, however, the band managed to release its debut album, titled Programmed (a cult US power/prog metal classic) in 1990. In the years - and releases - to follow, the style of the debut was maintained, despite its enrichment with "contemporary" '90s metal.

During the end of the '00s, the band got together for selected shows on both banks of the Atlantic. Furthermore, a new EP has been on the works since then, with the vocals being the only duty pending upon completion.
