Legendary Australian thrash metal band Mortal Sin has posted the following message online:

"Our long time friend Greg Morelli, guitarist of NAZXUL was tragically killed in the early hours of Thursday morning November 20th in a motorcycle accident. As many locals would know a huge storm hit Sydney last night and Greg was riding his motorbike home and hit a greasy wet patch on Parramatta road North Strathfield.

"Greg's death will be a huge loss to the Australian metal scene and of course the international black metal scene. The new Nazxul album had just been completed and Greg was really looking forward to getting back out on the road and we had also talked about the possibility of heading over to Europe for some shows next year. Greg explained to me that the new album was sounding like they finally wanted to sound like, and was really proud of what he had achieved.

"I hope all the black metal fans out there will raise their horns tonight for Greg. Rest in peace mate, you're a fucking legend."

A friend and I were the only witnesses of this tragic accident. I want you all to know that although we did all we could, unfortunately his life could not be saved. He passed rather quickly, with as little suffering as possible. From here on, I keep Greg, his parents and his fans in my prayers. xo

I think it's time to take over another dead artist's thread.

Post bands that everyone here may not have heard of yet. We're celebrating music in the wake of despair:

TROUBLE--I've seen a few mention them lately but do they really appreciate the heaviness? The Fall Of Lucifer, Bastards Will Pay, Pray For The Dead, Gideon, The Wish, Run To The Light, Black Shapes Of Doom, Hello Strawberry Skies, etc.

THE ABSOLUTE HEAVIEST CRUNCHIEST METAL OF ALL TIME

NONE ARE HEAVIER

Plus, Pray For The Dead is fitting here. Not that I believe in the whole purgatory thing, but the rest of the song makes you consider your coming inevitable demise. That's always good.
