Oh, fuck, this sucks so much. His work on Ajattara's Murhat blew my mind.

Man, what a important notice! He was so good. I hope they contract a new one soon, and as good as him.

This will be only true if the world doesn't end in December 21st this year or later

On a more serious note, even though I am not a huge fan of the band, such things are always sad news. RIP.

He was a really great drummer (Sinergy, To Hell And Back... really good drum stuff) and has my respect.

They don't say how he died. He was 38! Too young for an explanation-free death.

And yeah, his work with Sinergy was fearsome.

Bring Kita back please. We know everyone in the bands name by now anyway, was a stupid reason to kick him.

RIP Otus.. great drummer.

Of all the members of Sinergy, I thought he'd be one of the last to go.

Yesterday Tonmi's family informed the press that his death was sudden and it's still unclear what caused it. It wasn't a suicide. His friend found him dead in his appartment.

It wasn't this bad in the first months of 2011, was it now? It's February and you've already got like five to six musicians dead and Tony Iommi with cancer. :/

Yes, it was.

Five to six? I haven't really been keeping track, but it seems like a normal number. Musicians are people, dammit.
