Trey Azagthoth Collapses on Stage During Morbid Angel Show


Trey Azagthoth collapsed during a hometown Morbid Angel Show in Tampa, Florida on April 21.

His mother claimed he was dehydrated and had a back injury in a post she made Saturday, April 22 on Facebook:

“I would like to say thank you for all of your well wishes for my son, Trey. As it appears, Trey was totally dehydrated. His back issue was due to him slipping while going down the stairs of the bus and hit his back on one of the stairs. They have decided to go ahead and have a show tonight, and I am just hoping and praying that all goes well.

“I had a message from (Morbid Angel guitarist Vadim Von) Dan, he said that Trey got rest last night and was up and around and seem to be ready.

“I will continue to watch anything I can find about tonight. When he returns home tomorrow, I know he’ll need rest, but also needs to get some medical help.

“Again, thank you so much for your concern. He loves his fans.”

A video of the incident shows Azagthoth falling to one side and stumbling as he is guided to the back of the stage. Bassist and vocalist Steve Tucker stopped the show to tell the auidence Azagthoth was injured. They only played one more song without him before wrapping up the show.

Tucker said at the time”

Without the leader… I apologize. I love all you motherfuckers. Thank you for coming. Hopefully Trey is all right. We’ll see you all again real soon, man. You have a good fucking night.”

Our hearts go out to Azagthoth, his family, and all of Morbid Angel, and we hope for his speedy recovery.
