I hate writing about people dying. Especially metal dudes. But it happens, and when it happens, these members of our metal family should be mourned.
Today, we mourn the loss Phil Vane, the frontman for British grindcore outfit Extreme Noise Terror.
Phil was found dead at the age of 46 on Monday (February 21), and an official cause of death has yet to be disclosed. This is a major bummer. I fucking hate when rad dude’s die.
“The rumours are true — we’re sorry to announce that Phil passed away recently,” the band said in a statement. “The band will make a full statement soon but for now we need to take the time to come to terms with this terrible loss.”
