Metal world pays tribute to late Suicide Silence singer Mitch Lucker

A host of metal bands have been paying their respects to Suicide Silence frontman Mitch Lucker, who sadly passed away in a motorcycle accident yesterday (November 1).

The 28-year-old singer was killed in the accident in California, with the band taking to Facebook to call the tragic incident "completely devastating".

A host of metal bands have voiced their tributes to Lucker, who has a 5-year-old daughter, since the news broke. Bring Me The Horizon said: "We're deeply saddened to have lost one of heavy music's most valued icons, Mitch Lucker. Our thoughts are with his family friends and fans."

Rob Flynn, singer and guitarist of Machine Head, said: "RIP my brother, f*ck. Did 5 tours with the dude, my deepest sympathies to the whole SUICIDE SILENCE family. Great dudes, truly amazing people."

Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta meanwhile added: "RIP Mitch Lucker, such a sweet guy. Take a moment for him today and send love to his daughter, family and bandmates. Life is so short and fragile."
