Unfortunately, it has been made known that All That Remains guitarist and founding member Oli Herbert has passed away. He was only 44 years old.
The band issued the following statement in regards to this:
“We were devastated to learn that Oli Herbert, our friend, guitar player, and founding member of All That Remains, has passed away.
Oli was an incredibly talented guitarist and song writer who defined Rock and Metal from the Northeast. His impact on the genres and our lives will continue indefinitely.
No further details are available at this time. The band and family request that you please respect their privacy and remember Oli by celebrating the great music he made.”
Furthermore, his wife had the following to say:
“Hello everyone this is Beth, Oli’s widow. Thank you all for the kind thoughts and words. I don’t want to go into what happened until we have a complete picture, but as soon as we do there will be a statement from the family on this page. In the meantime, please respect our privacy as there are still relatives being informed of Oli’s passing. Thank you.”
This is undoubtedly a sad event for the metal community. Oli had a large impact on many while he was here. Like the band said, we should celebrate the music he made in order to remember his legacy.
