R(ock).I.P ERIC COOK.

MANTAS and ABADDON have issued the following statements in regard to the sad passing of VENOM's Lengendary Former Manager, ERIC COOK:

MANTAS: "Today sees the end of an era. My good friend Eric Cook lost his battle with the most vicious enemy. This is the second friend I have lost in the last three months to this disgusting disease. We traveled the world together and went through so many things, good and bad, but always remained friends.

"For those of you who don't know, Eric was VENOM's manager and fought hard to see the band rise to the heights that it did, working tirelessly behind the scenes.

"I have no words to express my sadness at the time of this news and can only offer my sincere condolences to his wife Carol and their two children and his brother Ged.

"Taken far too soon, rest well my friend."

ABADDON: "I met Eric Cook when I was 16. I invited him to come with VENOM as guitar roadie when we played our first real concert in Belgium. He subsequently became our manager and pretty much everything we achieved was because of him. We were business partners and saw each other every day for twenty odd years. He was the funniest guy you could hang out with, but tenacious in business and managed to make a quid go a long, long way. We didn't always see eye to eye, but he'd always listen to the other guys' point of view and could be swayed, if need be.

"Eric succumbed to a very violent cancer earlier today. He'd been ill since Christmas but kept working and trying to break bands and run his studio and other business interest.

"As his brother Ged succinctly put… The music business has lost a powerhouse and a legend.... I have lost a brother.

"Sleep well, mate."

AUGUST 5th 2007 First up, many thanx for all your wonderful messages of support, you people are fuckin' awesome!!! Work on the new version of SITE OF THE HYDRA is underway. Graphics are being created, new ideas and design being thought out, etc. So far, the Guestbook & Hell Yeah's pages have been revamped... Also, as many of you are missing our Forum (which, like our MySpace page, was removed without our knowledge), you'll be pleased to know that we are looking into things regarding an all-new METAL Forum! Watch this space...

 

JULY 23rd 2007. It is with great regret and a heavy heart that we must inform you that the SITE OF THE HYDRA so many of you have known since 2001 no longer exists, thanks to a certain person who used to be a friend and hero to us. For legal reasons, at this stage we do not want to comment any further. Please respect our wishes at this sad time, Thank You.

We would like to apologise to any of you that were on our friends list on SITE OF THE HYDRA's MySpace and Facebook. Our pages was deleted without our knowledge, so we never even had the chance to get our mails / messages saved, let alone save your MySpace ID's, etc. At some point, SITE OF THE HYDRA will return to MySpace. Not sure if we will be able to remember all 230+ friend ID's though. Sorry in advance!

There is no good news. All we can say is that SITE OF THE HYDRA will continue, although at this exact moment we have not had time, or been in the right frame of mind, to even start thinking about what direction this site will take. The last 18 months has been a very tiring and draining experience for us, and to be honest, we need to take a break from this, to see if our enthusiasm and love of this site can ever recover. I am sure it will, it just might take a while.

For the moment, we will just leave this very basic version of the website online, together with our interactive features. Our Metal Forum continues to grow, and is a terrific place to discuss not just music, but movies, television, games, sports, etc as well. Many of our closest friends are active there, and as a whole, the people on our forum are wonderful. Join us!

To finish, we would just like to thank you all for the marvellous support and kindness you showed towards us since 2001. It has been an absolute pleasure to have been able to create something that so many of you enjoyed, and we are deeply humbled by the many kind words you sent us over the years. We have made some terrific friends with so many of you, from all corners of this rotten planet, the very greatest of respect to you all!
