Other: H.R. Giger, February 5, 1940 - May 12, 2014

Posted by nightowl on Wednesday, May 28 @ 00:00:00 UTC (3174 reads)

"I fight the impending lure of belated sleep
For fear of waking up and you are gone"
Triptykon, "My Pain," 2010

"For the first time in 74 years, last night [May 12] was a night not illuminated by the indescribable light that was H.R. Giger.

At a time when almost everybody ridiculed, ignored, or even obstructed the music the then almost completely unknown Swiss underground band Hellhammer was creating, Giger listened to us, talked to us, and gave us a chance. Not least at a time when he was at one of many peaks of his path.
