Darkest Horizon - Keyboardist Passed Away

German metal ensemble Darkest Horizon shared news that their keyboardist Christian Mühlbauer has passed away. He was only 34 years old. Christian was part of the group since the formation in 2010.

Statement from the band as follows: "It is with deep sadness that we have to inform you that Christian passed away on Sunday morning. We are still completely stunned and shocked. He was one of the greatest people we have ever had the privilege to know. He was a friend, a brother, a world wanderer. And he decided to move on to a new world.

"The music, the foundation that is Darkest Horizon, is his legacy. He has given us a glimpse, a tiny glimpse, into his worlds and pushed open the gates to dimensions that would have remained hidden from all of us for a lifetime.

"His incredible ability to lighten up and nudge any situation with a pointed, dry comment was unbeatable. Many a cider found its way down the windpipe if you were careless enough to take a sip at just those moments.

"As brothers, we started making music, wrote albums and shared countless stages. From Jügesheim to Finland and finally to Sri Lanka. The memories of him are countless and will remain with us forever. And we will cherish them forever.

"Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones. Please understand that in the current situation, the relatives as well as us need time and rest.

"Rest in peace, old friend, wherever you are now. Your brothers."

34! That's really young.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.
