I wasn't a hardcore fan of them or anything, but still very sad to hear another metal musician passing. R.I.P. =(

Really sad to hear I had been listening to them recently always knew of them but just more recently started to really listen to them. Far too young

Holy fuck! I played a show with that guy in like, 2002. That's really really fucking sad. I was never a big fan of Woods, but the guy had a vision. Same age as me too, this is going to fuck with me for a while. RIP David.

NO FUCKING WAY!!!! wow... this is heartbreaking, Woods is an amazing band and he was an amazing song writer.

Was just discussing this with someone on Facebook. Tragic man, the band finally start getting a break and now this happens. The dude had a genuine love for what he was doing, and as Gordo pointed out, a great vision for his music, now that vision will never be fully realized.

I was never a huge fan but this is still sad regardless. I really enjoyed the first EP Against the Seasons, which I think he just played drums on.

This sucks. I only recently heard their music, it's pretty good, definitely worth checking out.

Man, this is almost as crushing to me as Dio's death was. Woods of Ypres got me through a very tough time a couple Springs ago, and when they finally toured the US this year I was extremely sick and had to miss it.
