Following speculation around the net it has finally been confirmed through Anal Cunt's publicist Kim Kelly that the band's iconic and extremely controversial frontman Seth Edward Putnam has passed away. The singer, who was age 43, succumbed to a suspected heart attack with no other details being released to the press at this given time. Kim Kelly commented on the passing of Seth Putnam by saying:
"Yes, it's true. Seth Putnam, one of the most infamous musicians that extreme metal has ever seen, the grindcore GG Allin, has passed away due to a heart attack.
"I handled all the promotion for Anal Cunt's last album, 'Fuckin' A,' and Seth was always happy to oblige any request I sent his way. The band had been working on a new album before his passing, so chances are his musical career's epitaph has yet to be inscribed.
"I want to remind everyone that no matter how outrageous and controversial his musical career has been, Seth was still a human being with friends and family that loved him. I'm hoping that the Internet will remember that. This is a very sad and trying time for those that knew him, and the last thing they need to see is an outpouring of message board hate. The man lived and died by his own rules; if anything, respect him for that."
Throughout Seth Putnam's career he has played in 17 separate bands, performed guest vocals on Pantera's "The Great Southern Trendkill" and released 10 studio albums with his trademark band Anal Cunt. A new Anal Cunt record, titled "Wearing Out Our Welcome," was set to debut this year but the status of the album is unknown at this time.
Anal Cunt finished a North American tour in April, and Metalunderground.com managed to snag an interview with the band's hilarious/ultra-offensive vocalist. The interview, in which Seth talked cock rock and leopard pants, can be found here.
Humorously enough, Anal Cunt tracks managed to make their way into both our pro-love and anti-love Valentine's Day articles this year. Anal Cunt also recently released a tribute to cock rock titled "Fuckin' A" (reviewed here).
