Interesting resource; 90 percent of these are still completely anonymous.  I must say I didn't know Bryan Hipp (BRUTALITY) was dead.

Somewhat related: their interviews section is well worth a few hours of fucking up your eyesight in front of the monitor.

If this page also listed the causes of death, it could make for some interesting statistical comparison against the average. For example, there seem to be pretty many suicides. That's maybe one of the best proofs of the subconscious Romantic and Nietzschean tendency of metal.

I was a bit shocked that Conscicide of BESTIAL SUMMONING is suddenly dead.

It's quite funny if you treat the band names as the cause of death, for example:

Aleksander "Olass" Mendyk
(ACID DRINKERS) [generally not a good idea]

Alain Thouvenot
(EXCESS) [a common death for many rock 'n rollers)

Christian "Witchhunter" Dudek
(SODOM) [I'm trying to not visualise this]

Ichtys Niger
(EVIL WAR) [this is a very moral stance!]

Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka
(DECAPITATED) [ouch, gruesome!]

Kelly Johnson
(GIRLSCHOOL) [what was he doing there?]

Pablo Braga
(LOBOTOMY, Argentina) [botched]

Einar André Fredriksen
(FUNERAL) [irony?]

A few pagan martyrs:

Henrik Johansson
(APOSTASY)

Sam Kress
(HEATHEN)

Mike "Yaz" Jastremski
(HEATHEN)

Roger Patterson
(ATHEIST)



... and so on.

Kelly Johnson
(GIRLSCHOOL) [what was he doing there?]

Kelly Johnson is a woman. She was their lead guitarist and vocalist and died of cancer. You can see her in this old video of Girlschool, they were pretty good.
