Woods of Ypres Update/R.I.P. Adrian Bromley

Woods of Ypres, the local black metal band featuring the entire Gates of Winter lineup in it's ranks, will be taking the stage in Toronto on January 17th for a memorial concert honoring the life of Canadian music journalist Adrian Bromley. This concert will be headlined by The Exalted Piledriver, with Detsorgsekalf, Eclipse Eternal, Endorphins, Into The Void and Musk Ox also featured.

Nicknamed "The Energizer", Bromley was the creator of Unrestrained! Magazine and Chronicles of Chaos, and also worked for The End Records, among many other publications and projects to help promote and support numerous metal bands. This included Woods of Ypres, who were featured on the cover of Unrestrained! Magazine in April of this year (which you can check out to the right.) Bromley sadly passed away from complications of pneumonia on December 7th, at the age of 37.

"A Memorial For Adrian Bromley" will take place January 17th at The Opera House in Toronto. Admission is via donation, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society. Visit if you're interested in donating.

Also, Blabbermouth have picked up on this story, and you can check out their article on this concert at this location. R.I.P. Adrian!

And finally, I posted the official message board for Woods of Ypres in the "Other Local Metal Links" section, just in case you wanna head over there and check it out!
