Mitch Lucker dead

holy shit, I did not see this coming

Mitch Lucker, the lead singer of extreme heavy metal band Suicide Silence, died on Thursday of
injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident in Huntington Beach, Calif., police said.
The band from Southern California was given the Golden Gods award for best new talent by Revolver
Lucker, 28, was on a new Harley Davidson motorcycle driving in the Orange County city of Huntington Beach on Halloween night when he lost control and crashed into a light pole, according to a statement from the local police department.

He was taken to the University of California, Irvine Medical Center where he later died, police said. Investigators said they were looking into the cause of the collision and whether alcohol was a factor.

Suicide Silence in 2007 came out with the album "The Cleansing" and followed that up with the 2009 "No Time to Bleed" and last year's "The Black Crown," which made its way to No. 9 on the Billboard hard rock chart.

The band, whose musical style is referred to as "deathcore," is originally from Riverside, California, a working-class community 50 miles east of Los Angeles.
The singer was involved in the accident not long after posting a photo to his Twitter feed in which he appeared to be costumed for Halloween.
"There's no easy way to say this," the band wrote in a statement posted on its Facebook page. "Mitch passed away earlier this morning from injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. This is completely devastating to all of us and we offer our deepest condolences to his family. He will be forever in our hearts."

"The world lost an incredible musician today," read a tweet from the band's record label, Hawthorne-based Century Media. "Our hearts are with all friends, family, and fans. RIP Mitch Lucker, you will be missed by many."
Vigils were held at the accident site as well as at Back to the Grind in Riverside, where Lucker’s longtime friend Jacob Cato was hosting his monthly "Tattoo Artist Perception" show. Lucker was supposed to be at the show to model his tattoos.
Lucker is at least the second heavy metal star to die in Huntington Beach in recent years; Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, the drummer of Avenged Sevenfold, died of drug overdose at his home in 2009.
