Dirk Strahlimeier, the former guitarist of German thrash metal legends Sodom, has passed away. Sodom frontman Tom Angelripper has posted the following statement online regarding Strahlimeier's death:

"As I learned from a reliable source, our ex-guitarist Dirk 'Strahli' Strahlmeier died this month in a hospital in Düsseldorf, Germany. Currently we don't know the exact circumstances of his death. Strahli played on the album Masquerade In Blood which was released in 1995 on SPV. After that we had lost contact with him. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

"R.I.P. Brother!"

Sodom are great, I think. Sorry to hear about the passing of Dirk.

Too many good, talented musicians are dying these days. Literally - Dying.

Dio, Peter Steele, Paul Gray, Dirk Strahlimeier... R.I.P.

People, please... Stop dying!!! :'-(

Just been listening to a bit of Sodom today. Pretty good band, somewhat underrated, too. Dirk was a good guitarist. Another band I want to see.

R.I.P. - Rock in peace, Dirk.
