The metal world was shocked a while ago when Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder died suddenly. The singer was 41 years old at the time of his death.
Now the band members are commenting publicly on the passing of their friend and bandmate.
Brandon Ellis, the band’s guitarist, writes:
“I can not even begin to process this… In total shock and disbelief. It has been my greatest honor to spend the last six and a half years in a band with this absolute icon and legend. A brother. A best friend. One of the funniest and most entertaining people to walk the earth. The life of the party that is The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as any given room he happens to occupy. A lyrical mastermind. A champion of the entire culture of heavy music. Also my biggest supporter. This man changed my life and believed in me more than I do myself. I can not believe there will be no more laughs had, songs written together, or stages decimated with Trevor at the helm. I hope he knew how much he was loved the world over.
Rest in peace Trevor”
Drummer Alan Cassidy posted on Twitter:
“I love you Trevor. You were always my biggest cheerleeder. You were my older brother I never had. I love that you always let everyone know you loved them and cared about them. I’ll miss you forever til we meet again.I hate living without you and knowing you’re not here”
