Graber did not know of any serious health problems. "He was somewhat overweight, clearly." Ain's death is, however, fundamentally completely surprising for Graber.

Ain's Celtic Frost bandmate Tom Gabriel Fisher also had the following to say via Facebook regarding Ain's death.

I am deeply affected by his passing. Our relationship was very complex and definitely not free of conflicts, but Martin's life and mine were very closely intertwined, since we first met in 1982.

We wish Ain's family and friends all the best at this time.
