Trevor Strnad, lead singer and co-founder of the Black Dahlia Murder, has died at the age of 41.

The death metal band announced Strnad’s death on social media today (May 11).

“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad,” the band wrote. “Beloved son, brother, and shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him.

“A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.”
