Fuckkkkkkk!! Rest In Peace Oli what a kind, cool and awesomely talented person! I’ll never forget he rode the Harry Potter rides w/ me when everyone else wouldn’t! I said you’re an actual wizard let’s do this and he agreed! He also helped write “I’m Ready” on Dee’s album. RIP pic.twitter.com/dUFXvYQ49Q

Really shocked to learn of Oli Herbert passing away. AE and ATR toured together years ago and Oli always used to come out and see us play when we came through his area. The nicest guy. The metal community’s lost another great musician way too early. #RIPOliHerbert #AllThatRemains pic.twitter.com/B4CM5pKEbA

The world has lost one of the sweetest and most talented musicians I have ever known. Oli Herbert of All That Remains was always so kind and friendly every time you saw him and a literal wizard on the guitar. Such devastating news and such a sad and tragic loss. #RIPOli

Oli Herbert was a unique personality and extraordinary talent. His kindness was felt every time we'd meet up on the road. The music world and metal community has lost one of its best. My condolences to the members of All That Remains, his friends, family and legacy of fans.

Oli Herbert. Great guitarist and a great guy. I remember nerding out about guitars every day that we were on tour together w Dethklok and ATR. Rest In Peace Oli.

Really sad to hear of the passing of our dear friend Oli Herbert of All That Remains. I’ve known him since my days at Peavey artist relations in 2005, and more recently kicking out some jams on Ship Rocked Cruise in 2016. He made the world a better place and will be missed by us all. Condolences to his band, family and friends. RIP. #olihherbert #allthatremains #shiprockedcruise
I’m gonna miss my buddy, Oli.

This is awful news. I had the pleasure of touring with him a couple times. He was really passionate about what he did. He was full of talent and always a pleasure to be around. My condolences go out to his family and his band. https://t.co/p07aZQGCc0

These are the news I would NEVER EVER want to give. I am deeply saddened by hearing that Oli Herbert from All that Remains passed away. I will always remember him as a very sweet, kind and calm human being. We used to call him “the wizard” for his long hair and beard and the way he used to play his magic with guitar pics and his guitar. My deepest condolences go to the whole band and Oli’s family. @olithatremains

So sad to hear of Oli’s passing today. What a genuine soul, good friend and amazing guitarist. @allthatremains are some of my oldest friends in the biz and I am forever grateful for the history we share. My heart goes to my dear friends in the band and his family and friends all over the word. Thank you, Oli for always being the dude that wanted to share a drink and talk about our love for guitar, especially old Jacksons. I’ll miss you bud. #ripoliherbert
Very sad to hear about the passing of @OliHerbert4Real. Oli was an amazing guitar player and a very down to Earth kind person. I enjoyed my time on tour with him. RIP, Oli.

In 2013 City in the Sea toured with All That Remains. Oli came up to me one night and told me I was killing it live and he dug our sound. As a big fan I was honored and thanked him and we chatted briefly about gear. Made a big impact on me that I won't forget. Rest easy ?

We just lost one of the most truehearted people on this planet and its absolutely devastating to anyone who knew him. When I was 12 years old Oli became my guitar teacher, (the top photos are from when I asked Oli to take a photo of me shredding, and he … https://t.co/rpwNZ48IRJ pic.twitter.com/AB6YXj36Wm
