fuck i didn't expect to read that. i remember being really excited the few times he posted here, i was also excited he was trying to get back into music.

it's a shame he had such bad problems in his life post-morbid angel :frown:

RIP Richard Brunelle, time to jam some altars and blessed in his honor :bang:

Pretty shocking news. I'm guessing, since no cause of death was announced, his lifestyle of dangerous heavy metal musicianship played a role. Rest in peace.

his contributions to metal by way of altars and blessed were monumental, honest to god devastating to hear he's passed. we're all getting old, i guess it's to be expected, but it still seems far too early for the musical heroes of that generation to go. fuck, man

RIP richard.

Another one bites the dust :frown: quite a few former MA members are now gone right? Sterling and Jared at least, and now Brunelle :sad:

am jamming Altars and Blessed in memoriam. His contributions to Morbid Angel were a big part of what pushed me to refine my style. This is a crushing blow. RIP :tear:

There’s not a whole lot of info available online about Brunelle. Seems to have been struggling for years though. These last snippets of information about his latest band are totally :alien:
