Update on Urgehal frontman
2012-05-17 by Magnus Altkula STAFF | 25 Comments

Season of Mist have now released an official statement concerning the death of Urgehal frontman, Trond "Trondr Nefas" Bråthen, who died earlier this week. The statement reads as follows:

"We are deeply sorry to announce that Urgehal vocalist / guitarist Trond Bråthen, aka Trondr Nefas, passed away last week. Aged 34, Trond died of natural causes.

His fellow bandmates Uruz and Enzifer issued the following statement: "The greatest is gone. Trondr Nefas, our dearest friend and companion for more than 20 years, suddenly passed away last week. He died a peaceful and natural death at one of his favourite places, surrounded by woods and crystal lakes. Thanks for all the years with friendship, music and madness. For the good times and the bad times. Through your dark devotion for Black Metal, you have inspired so many. You were a true pioneer. We will miss you, but never forget you, because your legacy will live on. Our deepest sympathy goes to Trond's fiancée Octavia, and both of their families. We appreciate all of the condolences and support given to us after his tragic death. Sammen var vi dynamitt!"

Trond will be sorely missed as a man and as a musician. The whole Season Of Mist staff send their condolences to his family and to the Urgehal camp."

EDIT: oh wait, Mo's got you covered

Yup, the man's other band, Beastcraft, said that it was either a seizure or a stroke. It was written in the article preceding this one.

I'd like to die like that when I'm 80-something.

RIP.
