Cannibal Corpse issue their first official public statement regarding the recent arrest of their guitarist Pat O’Brien, who currently faces charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault.

The guitarist broke into a neighbors residence having spoken of “the rapture” and reportedly also commenting that “aliens have landed”.

Deana Mazurkiewicz - wife of O’Brien‘s Cannibal Corpse bandmate Paul Mazurkiewicz - launched a crowdfunding campaign for O’Brien, asking “people not jump to conclusions until the full details of what occurred come out.” In a statement made to share the link for the aforementioned crowdfunding campaign, Gary Holt (Slayer/Exodus) says:

“He needs help, is gonna need help for a while, not talking about legal help, although he will need that too. But he’s gonna have a long road to travel. This is for his rehabilitation. People think Cannibal Corpse are millionaires and shit, they play death metal. One can make a living at it but they ain’t rich and he lost EVERYTHING. Help a metal brother out”

Cannibal Corpse are scheduled to open for Slayer on their North American tour that kicks off in May.
