Sławek “Mortifer“, the bass player of the Polish death metal band Hate passed away unexpectedly yesterday whilst on tour in Germany. Here is the official statement from the band:

“At night 5th/6th April near a German town of Munchberg, our friend, best comrade and longtime bass player unexpectedly passed away. After the show in Stuttgart last night he went to sleep and never woke up. We found him lifeless early in the morning and immediately called an ambulance. He was reanimated, but to no avail. Results of Sławek’s autopsy should be known soon. In this situation, we decided to cancel the remaining shows and return home. We gave detailed testimonies to the German police. We are shocked and shattered by his sudden, unexpected death. We mourn together with Sławek’s family and friends.”

This is a sad day for metal. Our thoughts and sincere condolences go out his family and the rest of the band. Rest In Peace Sławek Mortifer!
