Devil's Blood

Reports are trickling in that former The Devil's Blood guitarist and songwriter Selim Lemouchi has passed away. Though neither his former band nor his current band have issued statements as yet, a cryptic post on his personal Facebook page has been drawing comments that seem consistent with these reports. Additionally, Swedish rockers Ghost B.C. posted the following to their Facebook page:

Children of the World!

We want to pay homage to our friend Selim Lemouchi (The Devil's Blood and his own Selim Lemouchi & His Enemies) who has passed away and left the world one great talent poorer.

R.I.P.

Hopefully this will turn out to be an unsubstantiated rumor or misunderstanding. If not, we send our condolences to Lemouchi's friends and family. We'll keep you posted as additional details emerge.

UPDATE: Former The Devil's Blood manager Bidi Drongelen appears to have confirmed Lemouchi's passing.

I dont understand why people failed to see how big is the love our Jesus for everybody. It's heart breaking knowing some people love to say not so good words about this.

"It takes bravery. The deepest bullets are not to be feared; phosphorous napalm or nothing to be feared, but to look inward to see that twisted mind that lies beneath the surface of all humans and to say yes I accept you, I even love you because you are a part of me, you are an extension of me…"

^ English, sausage! Do you speak it?!?
