The late Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder was such a delightful person. He was incredibly passionate about music and always looking to support up and coming metal bands.
News of his passing is nothing short of horrific. We at The Pit, along with the entire metal community, miss Trevor greatly. We send our love to the band and Trevor’s family, friends, and loved one.
We thought we would share something nice to honor Trevor, and we found this great video that MetalSucks put together a couple years ago.
The video features the late Trevor Strnad taking the MetalSucks crew through a tour of his home; via Strnad’s apartment, viewers get to see all the metal t-shirts he owned, his immense metal CD collection, and retro video game collection.
You can find that MetalSucks video of the late Trevor Strnad providing a walking tour of his home below:
To hear Trevor’s voice, to see his excitement talking about metal t-shirts and his music collection… it’s really beautiful, and yet, also real melancholic.
News of Strnad’s passing came out as of yesterday (May 11th), via The Black Dahlia Murder social media channels. Per the band’s statement:
“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. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
