R.I.P. Trevor Strnad

2022-05-11 by Toondude | 145 Comments
Trevor Strnad, vocalist for metal band The Black Dalhia Murder, has just passed away at the age of 41, according to an announcement made by the band all over social media. While the cause of death is unknown, the band posted the National Suicide Prevention hotline at the end of their message.

The band's statement:
"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad," reads the statement. "Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.

The Black Dahlia Murder were one of my very first loves in extreme metal growing up, and one of the very few from that era of my life that still hold up as being as good as I remember them. They dropped great album after great album in my eyes, with the pinnacle being Nocturnal which I still consider a classic. That's high praise coming from someone who's as snobby as I am when it comes to extreme metal.

I can't even put into words how heartbroken I am, and how out of the blue this feels. It doesn't even feel real. Fuck man, I have to admit I'm legit crying right now. Fuck.

Rest in peace Trevor.

The back-to-back-to-back releases of Unhallowed, Miasma, and Nocturnal were some of the most repeated listens during high school for me.

Trevor's vocal style and ability to go from highs to lows so interchangeably awestruck my friends and I. He had such a unique and talented voice. And his lyrical ability was equally fascinating... so creative, fantastical, and dark.

Such a damn shame to be robbed of him so early and young...

Wow. I really thought I misread when I saw this at first. Huge RIP. Dude was definitely one of my favorite vocalists when I was driving into the heavier stuff. Big loss for the metal community and although I never got to speak one on one with him he seemed like a really awesome genuine dude from the times I'd seen him interact at shows. TBDM was also the headliner of my first show as well. I think a lot of people probably have BDM as their first metal show just off of the sheer influence they had back in the late 2000's.
