RIP.

I guess early death is inevitable with bands that mess with that "death" term. Suicide Silence, Death, Dead, Euronymous (Prince of Death), etc. Contrasting this is Lifelover's B. However, their band name was a parody to the music they played.

RIP.

I didn't like the band's music but I still never would've wished death upon on any of it's members.

Wow, that's rough. I didn't expect to come across this news today. It's quite unfortunate that he died like that.

It's never good when a member of the metal community passes away, even if you don't like the band.

Obviously i hate deathcore and this band too, but this fact really sucks, feel bad for his daughter and wife. R.I.P

Motorcycles are too high risk. Very sorry to hear RIP.
TrollandDie - 01.11.2012 at 22:41  
Same as most people here. Not a fan of their work, but to see someone die that young is tragic regardless.
Mad Arab666 - 01.11.2012 at 23:18  
28 is way too young. RIP

RIP, terrible for fans of the band, even worse for the band, even worse for his family.

Like many have said already, I absolutely couldn't stand the band, but regardless it's always sad to see a brother in metal pass away. RIP.
Behdad K - 02.11.2012 at 00:16  
Just watched a live clip from them after hearing about Mitch's death.
Sad news, RIP Mitch.
Machiavelli - 02.11.2012 at 00:41  
Man, I just looked at their catalog... no love for this band here.
RottingDeathHead - 02.11.2012 at 01:17  
I hate Suicide Silence with every essence of my being... though I am saddened cause this fucker could put on a bitchin' show. He even got my ass to move a little bit in the mosh pit. You will be missed somewhat. Rest In Pieces may your head bang in the Eternal Oblivion with the Metal Gods.
Void Eater - 02.11.2012 at 01:50  
Really sad for his young daughter whose going to have to grow up without a father. RIP.

28's way too young.

I think it would be a good idea for people to note that they didn't like the band before saying their condolences......it helps keep your street cred. i am giggling at the posers that merely seemed compassionate and said RIP.
Valentin B - 02.11.2012 at 06:13  
This piece of news pains me in two ways. I enjoy my deathcore sometimes and I remember enjoying Suicide Silence songs when checking them out in preparation for the 2012 summer festivals, and I really don't care what people around here say, this band was/is crushing as fuck. That and we're talking here about a fellow bike enthusiast dying doing what he liked, that's always kinda poetic and very sad at the same time.
Cynic Metalhead - 02.11.2012 at 06:31  
It was only a year I guess that I was chatting with him in Solus bar and he said "This band is nothing what fans are comprehending about, I am gonna taking this motherfucking band to much higher level" and then Bassist joked: If only you will die" . Mitch said: Yeah.

RIP
CrowKiller - 02.11.2012 at 07:35  
Unlike most people commenting, I actually enjoy listening to this band. Immense vocalist, RIP metal brother, your legacy lives on \m/
Vermoorden - 02.11.2012 at 07:42

Gotta love the sarcasm of this post! xD

Of course, this is a terrible tragedy, especially for his family. To die at 28.... well it's just so unexpected. RIP Mitch, and condolences to his bandmates and family.

All you posers ...are going to hate me

Uldreth - 02.11.2012 at 12:25  
No one should die that young

he was also a very good vocalist, regardless what people think of the band.
God of shadows - 02.11.2012 at 18:53  
RIP Mitch Lucker.
I will continue to wake up to your voice every morning.

When law wins with metal, someone from not-metal die. Nergal lost at court - someone from ,,core" genre die.

what sort of nonesense is this? Suicide Silence IS metal, whether you like them or not.

Terrible band. He seems to have been asking for it. I'm sure all the pseudo-sympathetic kids on here will flame this but someone's got to be honest. Hopefully they break up now.

You may not like the band, but wishing death upon someone is simply awful, you should be ashamed.
0mn1v0r3 - 03.11.2012 at 20:43  
I didn't say I wished him to die I said he seemed to be asking for ut based on his own posts on social media and the fact he was driving a motorcycle after the bar closed meaning he was knowingly sharing the road with drunkards leaving the bars whether or not he was drunk himself. You should be ashamed at your lack of reading comprehenson. The guy had a family and look how he acted. He invited this to happen and you only feel bad bc he was in a band. People die all the time but because he was a member of a subpar deathcore band everyone's drying their eyes. Give me a break.
SuicidalCyco - 04.11.2012 at 09:41  
So me and my friend were saying how much we didnt like Suicide Silence and they next day that guy dies. Talk about timing.

There is definitely some truth to this statement.

Shortly after he had passed away, I read that a bunch of One Direction fans were saying shit like this:

"Hahahaha gay emo faggot"
"lulz i hope hiz kid iz next"

And this:
http://alienationmentale.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/mitch-lucker-passes-away-directioners-poke-fun-one-direction-comes-to-my-homeland/

I'm a little skeptical, as I can't find any other source that directly points out the exact instance in which the 1D fans actually said this. If they did, though, that's a bunch of bullshit. I don't really like the music, either, but that doesn't mean you should tell a little girl to kill herself when her dad just died.

Anyway, death happens, but it's still sad. Like we all eventually will, he has found peace in the arms of oblivion.

Ex nihilo natus sum.
