Fleshcrawl Vocalist Sven Groß Passes Away After Cancer Battle

Sven Groß, the vocalist of German death metal veterans Fleshcrawl since 1997, has passed away at the age of 44, a year after being diagnosed with cancer last year. A message from drummer Bastion Herzog reads as follows:

"Svenson,

"It is hard to find the right words in situations like this one. Probably even impossible. For me personally this really is a hard thing to get over. We knew each other for more than 25 years.

"Haven't been many days during this period where we did not spend time together talking, writing, discussing, partying, drinking, BBQ-ing, making plans, playing shows, rehearsing, travelling, waiting in countless backstages or whatever. You're gonna leave a big gap right here in my heart which cannot be filled anymore.

"Thank you for having been a real friend, one of the most precious human beings this planet had to offer and of course a really awesome and iconic frontman, bandmate and hell of a vocalist of FC. I truly enjoyed each and every second watching you go berserk on stage as a real warrior of death while I was beating the shit out of all those drumkits behind you! Thank you for the great ride!

"You always lived life to the max, keep on doing it whereever you are now. We'll rock on again together on the other side - someday. And I'll make sure to bring some Wasseralfinger.

"My deepest condolences go out to Sven's wife Dany and both of their families."
