Former INTO ETERNITY guitarist and "ambassador of Saskatchewan metal" Rob Doherty has suddenly passed. He played on the band's 2004 album Buried In Oblivion. Into Eternity mainman Tim Roth says that "he was a special part of our band. Our condolences go out to all of Rob's family and friends, and to all those, who Rob's music touched."
Doherty's band mates in FINAL DARKNESS issued the following statement: "It is with incredible sadness that we must say good bye to our brother Rob - you will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved you...thank you for being a part of our lives. May you find peace my friend..."
Doherty released the debut from his FINAL DARKNESS project late last year.
The album also features guest performances from Tim Roth (Into Eternity) on the songs 'Kill Room', 'Memories' and 'Darkness Falls'. A big break came when legendary producer/engineer Neil Kernon (QUEENSRŸCHE, NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE) agreed to do the final mix for the project. Kernon also helped hook Doherty up with mastering engineer Alan Douches from West West Side Music to help give the album "a killer sound."
