Anal Cunt - Josh Martin Dies In Escalator Accident


Unfortunately, there's tragic news to report regarding the former guitarist of grindcore group Anal Cunt, Josh Martin. It has been reported that he has sadly passed away in a fatal escalator accident on Monday night in a Providence mall. WPRI reported the he fell off from the upper level to the food court area at around 10:45 pm and later died at the Rhode Island Hospital after suffering from his injuries which included serious head trauma. Josh Martin was 45 years old.

A witness told police that Martin was "clowning around and riding the rail of the escalator."

Josh was a member of the band between 1996 and 2001, and then again from 2006 until Seth Putnam's death in 2011, which marked the end of the band. In addition to Anal Cunt, he played with projects including Adolf Satan, Impaled Northern Moonforest, and more recently, Failure Clinic.

Seth Putnam made jokes about his own coma. Now, of course Josh Martin is not Seth Putnam, but I think he would find them funny. Being in Anal Cunt for all that time, he probably had some sense of (morbid) humor.

It would have been tragic news if he had died from a disease or a traffic accident, but he fell off an escalator. That's fucking hilarious. Ah well, the ups and downs of life.

What's funny is that this was on my local news and no where did it say he was a metal musician so I had no idea it was Josh Martin or anyone I would know of. Also that mall is like 30 minutes from my town and I have been to that very food court and have been on that escalator.

P.S. @raintrance Fuck off, you aren't a trve AxCx fan.

Don't need to fuck off. As far as I recall, prefaced my comment by saying I was never a fan. Uncalled for, dude.
