Sammy Shmoulik Avigal passed away

This terrible news reached us today (July 31, 2020):

Hello everyone. This is Shmoulik’s wife. I wanted to let you all know that at 4:58 he lost his battle and passed away. Please celebrate the man, the legend. Goodbye my love — we all love you.

Needless to say we are heartbroken by this terrible news. Sammy was a great friend, a great performer and vocalist. We are very proud that he was the singer in our band in 1982 with whom we recorded one of the best Dutch metal albums ever: Diamond Dreamer.
We will miss you and would have really wanted to do some tours with you to celebrate this album but it wasn’t to be.
Our thoughts and prayers go to your wife and next of kin.
Godspeed Sammy Shmoulik Avigal!
