Trevor Phipps, vocalist of Unearth and founder of Ironclad Recording, has issued the following statement regarding the passing of Early Graves' vocalist Makh Daniels.

Trevor Phipps:
"The tragic death of Makh Daniels has shaken us at Ironclad completely to the core. Within the label we pride ourselves in our personal relationships and family like atmosphere and the loss of Makh is the untimely and devastating loss of a friend. I personally knew Makh as a man of incredible passion. You could read it in his ferocious yet challenging lyrics and see it in his undying heartfelt stage performance. Whether he was playing in front of seven or 700 people he would always perform with the same intensity and genuine emotion. He continuously showed his love for his words, music, friends and anyone who was lucky enough to be in the room with him while he performed. His life was cut far too short and he will be sorely missed by his family, brothers in Early Graves, friends around the country, and all those that he touched with his lyrical and performance command. R.I.P. Makh."

Post 1. Completely disrespectful first of all. But secondly this band was arguably the best up and coming grind/punk band in the US. Listen to the music before making a completely out of line, disrespectful comment a band you know nothing about and a man that just died. So much more I could say, but Im done wasting my time on your ignorant fvcking ass.

Gaylord that is a pathetic and callous attitude. I assume from your lonely and alienated position no-one will lament your passing.
