It is with great sadness that we report that Erik Lindmark, the founder of Unique Leader Records, as well as the founding guitarist of Deeds of Flesh, has passed away, losing his battle with Sclerosis.

The Unique Leader Records Facebook page shared this message:



It is with great sadness that we must announce that our CEO & Founder, Erik Lindmark, passed away today after battling with Sclerosis.

The indelible mark he has left on the Death Metal genre is monumental, both as a business man and as a musician. After building this label from scratch with his Deeds bandmates, Erik took Unique Leader to a level he had never expected it, or the genre, to get to.

During his time in Hospital, Erik was absolutely implicit with his instructions to staff to go full steam ahead with the label in his absence- which is exactly what we intend to do.

That being said, we will not be releasing anything in January so that we can make the necessary adjustments and delegations within the company. We would like to thank you all for your well wishes, support and kindness toward Erik on socials and via private correspondence.

There is a gofundme setup for Erik's daughter Bella (5) and his wife- link below.

Rest in peace Erik. You were a true warrior.

Unique Leader was at one point home to many big names in death metal today like Decrepit Birth, Fallujah, Gorod, Spawn of Possession, Rings of Saturn, Psycroptic and many more. Lindmark also performed on all of Deeds of Flesh's releases.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Erik's family and friends.
