August 15 1971 – May 20, 2012
Steeve Hurdle was the one-time guitarist for respected Canadian death metal band, Gorguts. What started out as a fairly standard heavy band in 1989, quickly evolved into one of the most technically advanced outfits of the scene. Hurdle joined the band in 1998 and played on their breakthrough album of that same year, Obscura. He either wrote or co-wrote every song on the 60-minute opus. Although highly praised, the album hit just as death metal was losing steam, so Gorguts was subsequently dropped from their label. Hurdle and the band soon parted ways as well. In 1994, he formed Negativa who garnered a loyal legion of fans for its avant metal sound. They released their debut, Negativa, in 2006. Steeve Hurdle died from complications of an initially undisclosed surgery on May 20, 2012. He was 41. More about Steeve can be found on this Tribute Page.
