ALL THAT REMAINS Guitarist OLI HERBERT Dies

Oli Herbert, guitarist of Massachusetts metallers ALL THAT REMAINS, has died. He was reportedly only 48 years old. The news of his passing was broken by the group in a social post earlier today.

Oli‘s bandmates wrote in a statement: ”We were devastated to learn that Oli Herbert, our friend, guitar player, and founding member of ALL THAT REMAINS, has passed away.

”When I was younger, I’d started playing piano, and I liked playing all the new age and pop stuff because keyboard is often the main instrument in those songs,” he said. ”But when I started listening to metal and rock, guitar was suddenly the main instrument I was listening to. So I think my ear has always been in tune with the lead instrumentalist.”

ALL THAT REMAINS‘s ninth full-length album, ”Victim Of The New Disease”, is due on November 9 via Fearless.
