All That Remains guitarist passes away

2018-10-17 by Toondude | 68 Comments
In a rather sudden and unfortunate event, the guitarist for All That Remains, Oli Herbert, has passed away. He was the only founding member of the band other than vocalist Phil Lebonte. The cause of his death is currently unknown.

The band released a statement on social media:

We were devastated to learn that Oli Herbert, our friend, guitar player, and founding member of All That Remains, has passed away.

Oli was an incredibly talented guitarist and song writer who defined Rock and Metal from the Northeast. His impact on the genres and our lives will continue indefinitely.

No further details are available at this time. The band and family request that you please respect their privacy and remember Oli by celebrating the great music he made.


This comes in as the band are about to release their ninth studio album, Victim of the New Disease, which is scheduled to drop on November 9th.

He was 44 years old.

I'm getting conflicting reports on his age, some say 44, others say 49.

I'll edit it if necessary when those reporters stop fucking up but I do believe 49 is the correct age

rest in peace Oli. he honestly shaped my taste and experience with music more than almost any other artist, with All That Remains only being the second heavier band I ever got into and his guitar work being my main draw to them in the first place.



Regret Not seems like the perfect track to remember him by right now.

I may not care for the band anymore, but The Fall of Ideals was huge to me in high school. They happened to be the first band I have seen in a smaller venue. Excellent guitar player, RIP.
Gonna jam This Darkened Heart now.

I have some friends speculating that the album would either be delayed or canceled entirely after this.
Let's hope for the best in regards to the album. Still fucking shook by this.

Why would it be canceled? It's probably been in the can for a while now, mastered and ready to go.

I'm still unsure on Linkin Park's future post-Chester, but this could be a lot easier of a decision.

Mike said that they're going to continue on as a band, not sure if they'll get a new singer though

Oli was one of the main songwriters, yes Exhale.
And Toon, that makes sense. But it's like we haven't gotten a lot of future information about what approach LP will be taking, y'know?

no real details but the death has been ruled accidental. apparently they found him in a creek near his house, so probably drowning. fucking sucks.

So this might be unusual but I just read a comment from this guy or girl "City of Firsts" on a site called Masslive, but I felt it important to share here because it helps celebrate, appreciate, and share the memory of an amazing guitar player...



City_of_Firsts

"I took guitar lessons from Oli for a few years when I was a teenager, at the music shop in Agawam. I was never a very good player, but I sure was in awe of Oli. He was such an amazing musician with incredible talent and an excellent ear. I could bring in a CD and he would teach me any song I played for him, even if he had never before heard it. He taught me all the tools and building blocks to be a good player, and conveyed the information in a simple and easy to understand way. I had the privilege of hearing and watching him shred on the electric guitar at our lessons, but also got to hear him play classical pieces that he had composed, which were incredible, and all other kinds of music. He was always kind to me, and patient and just a great teacher. Super nice guy, humble and down to earth. I listened to some metal and saw All That Remains a few Sunday nights back at the Fat Cat, but his guitar playing that I got to see and hear in that tiny little lesson both will stay with me always, even though those lessons were 15-20 years ago. My condolences to his family, friends, band mates and fans. I’m very sorry to hear of Oli’s passing. "
