Abacinate singer found dead
2010-09-30 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 25 Comments

Jason Sica, frontman of New Jersey death metal band Abacinate, was found dead on Tuesday morning in a friend's house. He was 25.

The band have released the following the statement:

"Jason was a dear friend and a true brother to all of us. He was an amazing talent, a loving personality, and a true gentleman with a heart of gold. The remaining members of Abacinate are deeply, deeply saddened by his loss. Before his untimely demise, Jay was immortalized on our most recent recording. It is the first and only recording that will actually be released with Jay performing the vocal duties for Abacinate. The album, set to be released in late 2010, is dedicated to Jay and all of his loved ones.

"Although Jay was only a member of the Abacinate roster for about one year, we soared to new heights together, and experienced much success and prosperity that we had yet to achieve in the prior years of our existence as a band. Jay had the pleasure of doing two U.S. tours, many festivals, and an LP with us during his short run. We are very proud and honored that we were such a huge part of his life.

"As of right now, Abacinate plans on taking a short hiatus in order to collect our thoughts and get through this terrible time in a healthy way. We will having a benefit show for Jay, somewhere in NJ in the upcoming months , in order to raise funds for his family, and to say goodbye to him with the rest of the music community in a proper way. Details for this benefit show will be provided as we solidify the plans.

"Jays' family and all of us here at the Abacinate camp would like to express our appreciation to anyone and everyone who reached out to us during this difficult time to extend their sympathy."

Never heard of these guys. In fact the word abacinate is quite an unfamiliar word to me, I've only ever heard it in 'Angel of Death' by Slayer, even my computer doesn't know what it is because it's putting that little red squiggle under it. But nonetheless RIP, that sucks
