Heathen Sam Kress, lead singer for metal bandHeathen and co- founder of fanzine Whiplash, passed away last week. Cause of his death has not been released. Whiplash's co-founder and long time friend Brain Lew stated: "Basically, Sam was more the business guy and I was more the creative guy and we worked well together... We also spent a lot of time hanging out with other metalhead friends... Listening to metal, drinking, being young and stupid. I can't even guess how many times I crashed on his couch." Lew also stated he regrets not seeing Kress enought in the last few years.
