Unexpected yet I'm not surprised. A truly unique drummer for a seminal heavy band ... This next buds for him!

FUCK the people who said it was drug overdose..judgmental FUCKS

Doctors confirmed to family members that the cause of death was respiratory failure. He also suffered from long term asthma.

Obviously not the best music in the world but definitely atmospheric, gritty and raw. Very cool.
