Farewell to Martin Lacroix, a formidable presence in Cryptopsy.  His brutal vocals, artistic prowess, and his warmth as a human will be dearly missed. Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time.

Gorguts added on their own page: 

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear friend [Martin Lacroix]. Martin was not only a gifted artist but also a close companion of Luc, residing nearby in Sherbrooke. Lacroix, a dedicated Gorguts fan, crafted the HarpSkull design for our shirts and later contributed to the entire artwork of Colored Sands (2013) on Season of Mist and some pieces for …And Then Comes Lividity: A Demo Anthology (2014) on War on Music Records. The scene has lost a precious gem, and he will always be remembered. RIP, Brother.
