Bassist Sławomir "Mortifer" Kusterka, of Polish extreme metal band Hate, passed away last night. The band was touring with Hypocrisy and Essence at the time.

The band have issued the following sad news: "At night 5th/6th April near a German town of Munchberg, our friend, best comrade and longtime bass player unexpectedly passed away. After the show in Stuttgart last night he went to sleep and never woke up. We found him lifeless early in the morning and immediately called an ambulance. He was reanimated, but to no avail. Results of Sławek's autopsy should be known soon. In this situation, we decided to cancel the remaining shows and return home. We gave detailed testimonies to the German police. We are shocked and shattered by his sudden, unexpected death. We mourn together with Slawek's family and friends.

Adam, Konrad, Stanislaw, Daniel /HATE"

Oh...that was unexpected. I wasn't a big fan of him, but I feel sorry for him.
