Man, there goes another one, though i do not know of this band it really breaks my black heart to hear that another one has fallen so soon into the new year. I've always wondered why it is the metal community suffers the most deaths of all the genres, sometimes I think some force out there in the universe wants to destroy the metal.R.I.P. Ben may he rock in peace.
