Read about his passing yesterday.

Sad news, indeed.

What a legacy he leaves, the first two Mercyful Fate and King Diamond albums are iconic (absolutely no slight to In The Shadows!) and will be remembered in metal history forever.

R.I.P.

Looking at the two album covers above together, I can just imagine Peter Hobbs going to the illustrator with a copy of DBTO and saying "Oi mate, how about ya put me on the covah like this?"

The rapper Bad Azz has died.  Not the best known rapper, but he could flat out rap.  My favorite verse of his is the last verse on this little known Eastsidaz song.

RIP Baron Blood from Necromantia. Here he kills it on the 8-string bass; this is one of the most sad and beautiful things I've ever heard, really. It's basically flamenco guitar on 8-string bass. Amazing. 

Shitty season for metal musicians...
