Warrel Dane, frontman for such bands as Nevermore and Sanctuary, has unfortunately passed away this morning. According to Dane's guitarist Johnny Moraes in an interview with Brazil's UOL, Dane died overnight from a heart attack and could not be revived.
"He died in the night. He had a heart attack. He was in the apartment where he stayed during the recording of the album when it happened. I gave him cardiac massage and we called the Mobile Emergency Care Service (SAMU), who came very fast, but when they arrived, he was already dead."
Dane was currently in the process of crafting his first solo album in 10 years. Rest In Peace Warrel, and thanks so much for all the phenomenal music over the years.
