|Slawek “Mortifier” Archangielskij, bassist for the Polish death/black metal outfit of Hate, was found dead by his band mates, between April 5 and April 6.|
Archangielskij started his collaboration with the band as a session musician in 2007, while in 2009 he became a full time member and got involved in the recording sessions of Erevos (2010) and Solarflesh (2013).
He was 27 years old.
The band issued the following statement regarding his passing:
“At night 5th/6th April near a German town of Munchberg, our friend, best comrade and longtime bass player unexpectedly passed away. After the show in Stuttgart last night he went to sleep and never woke up. We found him lifeless early in the morning and immediately called an ambulance. He was reanimated, but to no avail. Results of Slawek’s autopsy should be known soon. In this situation, we decided to cancel the remaining shows and return home. We gave detailed testimonies to the German police. We are shocked and shattered by his sudden, unexpected death. We mourn together with Slawek’s family and friends.”
Extremely sad. R.I.P

Never listened to the fan. Not a fan of black metal. But to lose someone that young is a fucking shame. RIP.
