The Gates of Slumber at Saint Vitus in 2012 (more by Caroline Harrison)

In incredibly sad news, it's being reported that Jason McCash, former bassist for doom greats The Gates of Slumber, has passed away. He was 37.

McCash had initially left the band this past September, and they called it quits soon after. The band write on Facebook:

My best friend died last night. There will be no reunion - no more of TGoS. It's dead beyond dead, and I've lost a brother.

Please be respectful or silent. It's a small world and I'm still alive. Remember that shit.

No cause of death has been reported at this time.

Rest in peace, Jason. You'll live on through your music.

Right on, get the dudes name right or else this post is confusing to anyone who actually gives a shit about what happened. Show the man some respect and get the name right.

Wow, what an elegant and moving tribute his bandmate wrote for him. "Remember that shit." Classy.

People don't always need to write "moving tributes". The guy is obviously hurting, probably in shock, most likely angry. It's alright to eact like that. The guy's alright.

Not only could they not get his name right, but they couldn't even post a photo of the man's face?

Jason McCash was actually 38 and he was one of the nicest people I have ever known. I went to highschool with him and considered him a friend. The insensitive anonymous comments are ridiculous.
