Numerous members of the hard rock and metal community have reacted to the passing of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER vocalist Trevor Strnad.

Members of such bands as TESTAMENT, SUICIDE SILENCE, EXODUS, HATEBREED, AMON AMARTH and QUEENSRŸCHE have all reacted on social media to the singer’s death, with some in complete shock and others paying tribute.

Strnad’s death was announced by his THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER bandmates on social media yesterday (May 11). They wrote: “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.” The band also shared the telephone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER guitarist Brandon Ellis wrote in a separate post: “I can not even begin to process this… In total shock and disbelief. It has been my greatest honor to spend the last six and a half years in a band with this absolute icon and legend. A brother. A best friend. One of the funniest and most entertaining people to walk the earth. The life of the party that is THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, as well as any given room he happens to occupy. A lyrical mastermind. A champion of the entire culture of heavy music. Also my biggest supporter. This man changed my life and believed in me more than I do myself. I can not believe there will no more laughs had, songs written together, or stages decimated with Trevor at the helm. I hope he knew how much he was loved the world over.”

Trevor Strnad had spoken openly about his struggles with depression and alcoholism in the past, even going as far as to receive intravenous ketamine therapy as treatment.
