As was reported yesterday, Slipknot bass player Paul Gray was found dead in a Urbandale, Iowa hotel room at around 10:50 yesterday morning, with the cause of death currently unknown. Several of his peers have posted tributes online, including a video message from Munky of Korn. You can check out the tributes below.
Brian Fair (Shadows Fall): "I'm so crushed to hear about the passing of Paul Gray. I had the pleasure of first getting to know him on a press trip to New York City before our tour with Slipknot and Lamb Of God in 2005 and then sharing stages and good times with him and the boys around the world. He was a great musician, an underrated songwriter and a truly warm soul underneath the evil mask he rocked onstage. This is a huge loss to the metal world. He will be missed deeply."

The No Label Needed Series presented by Scion in collaboration with MetalInsider.net is helping one lucky band leave labels behind and take on the industry all on their own. The series will show viewers how it's done, all while helping the special contest-winning band get ahead in a spectacular way.
At www.metalinsider.net/nolabelneeded thousands of Metal bands entered, twenty finalists were selected and one winner was voted on by a panel artists, agents, writers and managers. The winning band, IRON THRONES of Minneapolis, MN, was announced on April 1st and provided opportunities to get all the help and education they need to become a truly self-sufficient artist without having to sign a traditional record deal.
Before the cameras of the SERIES, IRON THRONES will receive a personalized, all-encompassing tutorial focused on the secrets and tips needed to achieve success in the music industry through DIY means of marketing. They will be mentored by the members of Shadows Fall, will record an EP produced by Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence), will shop for their stage and photo shoot clothing with Maria Brink (In This Moment) and Blasko (Ozzy) and receive advice from the likes of Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan. Their website will be re-designed, their merch re-imagined and radio and press campaigns mounted to promote their EP by the best in their fields.
The series is not only meant to be a learning experience for one band, it is meant to teach any dedicated musician who wants to learn how to properly market their craft. Readers will be able to interact with contest partners and contributing musicians and professionals through the site to get some real insight into specific areas of expertise.
The members of IRON THRONES have been blogging since the start of the experience and will be initiating live chats on Justin.tv/iron_thrones. The band was introduced to the world of music on the site and the first episode of the series, where the mentoring session with SHADOWS FALL (Everblack Industries / Ferret) occurred ran on Tuesday, April 13th.
