EXHORDER BASSIST PASSES AWAY
Another tragic loss for metal: Exhorder bassist Frankie Sparcello passed away yesterday. More information about the cause of death has yet to be released.
Exhorder might be America’s answer to At the Gates — a legendary band who didn’t get the respect they deserved in their time, but ended up influencing a seemly endless amount of their followers, who subsequently popularized their sound. The band reunited in 2009 and were supposed to play Maryland Deathfest in May; no word yet on whether or not the band still plans to move forward in the wake of Sparcello’s passing.
Our thoughts are, of course, with Sparcello’s friends and family.
