R.I.P. ADRIAN BROMLEY, 1971 – 2008
We just found out that our good friend Adrian Bromley has passed away from pneumonia. And we were literally just talking about him yesterday.
Most of you reading this probably won’t know Adrian. He wrote for a number of publications and websites over the years, and founded his own underground extreme magazine, Unrestrained! We met him when he was working as the in-house publicist at The End Records; he was a garrulous, funny motherfucker, one of those dudes who gave shit as well as he took it, and an industry insider who believed in MetalSucks and gave us access when we were still struggling to get anyone to take us seriously.
Adrian left The End earlier this year and was flying solo, doing PR for bands like Giant Squid and Master. We know it’s a cliché, but his death leaves a serious void in the scene. He had just turned 37 years old. Even as we type this, we can’t quite believe it’s real.
Adrian, wherever you are, we raise our shot glasses to you, dude. You are already missed.
