Benedikt Bjarnason, ex-guitarist with German melodic death metal band Mourning Caress has passed away, at the age of 32.
He died on 29th December 2010, having been diagnosed with cancer only several months earlier.
The band commented;
“In spite of his positive attitude, distinctive humour, courage and immense will to defeat the disease, he lost this battle. We will never forget you. Rest in peace, brother. See you on the other side!”
Mourning Caress’ latest album, “Inner Exile”, was released in 2008 via Restrain Records. The CD was recorded and mixed at Soundlodge Studio and was mastered at DMS in Germany.
