Florida-based death metallers DIABOLIC have issued the following update:

"Just got a call from Jerry Mortellaro [ex-DIABOLIC guitarist] tonight letting us know that Bryan Hipp, ex-DIABOLIC guitarist, died last night [Saturday, Oct. 21]. Cause of death unknown.

"Bryan Hipp helped write songs off the DIABOLIC album 'Subterranal Magnitude' and helped DIABOLIC complete the 'Death Metal Massacre' Metal Maniacs tour 2000, opening for CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOD DETHRONED and HATE ETERNAL.

"We are posting the song 'Infernalism' Bryan Hipp wrote back in 1999. Bryan Hipp also played in BRUTALITY, CRADLE OF FILTH, and in BLASTMASTERS he helped write the song 'Implemented Digital Control'!!! On stage Bryan Hipp would explode with raging headspins. His talent to create some of the most dark and evil riffs will be missed."

As previously reported, DIABOLIC uploaded a new song, entitled "Devour the Subconscious", to their MySpace page. The track comes off the band's new album, "Shellfire and Tombstones", which was recorded and mixed in July/August 2006 at Diet Of Worms Studio in Seffner, Florida with producer Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (MORBID ANGEL). The album features artwork by acclaimed Swedish artist Mathias Noren and is tentatively scheduled for release late 2006/early 2007 through an as-yet-undetermined label.

I can't remember who said it a while back, but this place really should start up an obituary section (not the band).

I don't know if I was the first to recommend an obituary section but I suggested it a couple of deaths back. I think it's a good idea for both the dead and the living.

An "in memoriam" or tribute to the fallen page is something I've thought of doing for a while, but I just don't have the time to devote to it now.

I don't believe for one second that the cause of death is unknown.

I knew Bryan quite well for a time.....he had a part of him that was super cool....when he was together he was a most wonderfully emotional guitarist......but mostly he was a mess most of the time....

one guess as to cause of death....death by pills or some other drugs.... and it really makes me sick to see that the new FAKE and USURPED DIABOLIC would immediately take the opportunity to promote themselves through the news......

I know it's tough to get ahead as a metal band but using poor old Bryan's death......you boys ought to start a new band using a new name instead of the one you stole........what a bunch of jerks you all are......
