A few days ago, it was announced that Hate's bassist Mortifer had passed away and at the time the band had no idea what had caused his sudden passing. In a new update, the Polish group has now revealed what the autopsy determined as the cause of Sławomir "Mortifer" Archangielskij's death: heart rhythm disturbances. The bassist also suffered from asthma and had obstructive sleep apnea.

Official statement from the band: "Last night our friend's body arrived in Warsaw. Autopsy report determines one cause of death - heart rhythm disturbances (Herzrythmusstörung). It is also known that Sławek suffered from asthma and had problems with breathing whilst asleep (obstructive sleep apnea). His family would like to thank everybody who helps and supports them in this tragic moment with the following words: 'We would like to thank for sympathy, love and any kind of support that we have been given by Sławek's friends from the bands Hate, Naumachia and Saltus. We also would like to thank the band Hypocrisy for their attitude and support which is very much appreciated. Great thanks to all kind people in Poland and all over the world whose moving goodwill helps us so much in this hard moment.' Wife, Mother and Brother."

"We inform that the last farewell to Sławek will take place on 16th April 2013 in Cmentarz Północny (Wólka Węglowa) at 11.30 in hall B. Between 12.15 and 12.45 Sławek's body will be shown in the Farewell Hall. His ashes will be buried on 17th April at Czerniakowski Cemetary in Sadyba (Warsaw)."

Looks like drugs played no part, in the end. Though drugs can be a cause of hearth attack.

Have a good time in the afterlife, man.
