members of certificateAnd the silence of suicideAnd displacementAnd The seed of hatredAnd Amon MARTH And Queensrich They are among the musicians who interacted on social media with the passing of Trevor Strnadsinger of Michigan metal band Kill the black dahlia.

studyHis death was announced by his bandmates on social media earlier today. They wrote: “It is with great sadness that we announce his death Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepherd of the good times, he was loved by all who met him. A walking encyclopedia of everything related to music. He was a hugger, writer, and one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His words provided the world with stories, incantations, horrors, and whims. It was his life to be your show. The group also shared a phone number The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Kill the black dahlia guitar player Brandon Ellis In a separate post, she wrote: “I can’t even begin to address this…in shock and complete disbelief. It has been an honor to have spent the last six and a half years in a band with such absolute icon and legend. The funniest on earth.. the life of the party that is Kill the black dahlia, plus any particular room it happens to occupy. Lyrical Mastermind. Champion of the entire heavy music culture. Also my biggest supporter. This man changed my life and believed in me more than myself. I can’t believe there won’t be more laughs, songs written together, or plays Trevor on the rudder. I wish he knew how much he was loved all over the world.”

last november, study He shared on social media that he was having a hard time dealing with the death of his mother, who “died a few weeks ago” “very suddenly”. “Even at 40, it’s still tough,” he wrote. “We were close. I feel like a little lost kid. Pillars for so many of you who have dealt with this and made it to the other side.”

In an April 2021 interview with Metal Injection, study He talked about his battle with depression and alcohol dependence. At the time, he said (as written by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “At the rate I drink while we’re going on tour, it’s not sustainable to get older. Being over 40 and being able to do what I do well and not look like a reckless has to be better for myself. That’s really the motivator.” [for quitting drinking]. This is her heart. It’s not like that… I know I’m no fun [when I’m drinking].

“I went eight months without alcohol, but in that time it was more of a relationship salvage; it wasn’t something I really wanted to do, and really invested myself in. I was bitter about having to do it after a while and resented my partner. But that’s my choice.” I want to feel the excitement I had before I drank. When we started this band, I was a cranky kid. Now it’s like… It’s lubricant for me to go on stage and be hilarious and be kind of mean and be the wild guy [fans] We expect, they saw from our DVDs, which is really just a compilation of the good times. So if you’d expect any band to blaze fully like this all the time, it’s not – it’s not sustainable. But it got to the point where I have 10 drinks a day in addition to getting up on stage. And two weeks after that, I got suspended every single day. I chase that hangover with more liquor, until the end of the round [by which time] I doubled my income just to be able to get by, basically. And that’s not fun – it’s disgusting; sucks. It starts as fun. The three of us drinking in the band, like, ‘Yeah, bro. Drinking time. And lo and behold he is Fun, but not sustainable. I’ve seen pictures of myself, and videos of myself where I say, “Yeah, you look like shit.” I don’t want to sound like shit. From now on, it would be difficult to meet people’s standards physically.

He continued, “Even though it’s a heavy metal band, there’s a lot of eye on us and a lot of judgment, it’s crazy.” “We’re not a boy band. I’m not supposed to be handsome. Who cares? But people scold you. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been called fat on the internet. It’s crazy — literally. You have to have thick skin to do what I do. Time, man. Doing all the social media myself and bearing the brunt of any faceless abuse, builds up in some self-doubt, it builds up in more anxiety, for me, as the band gets bigger and bigger and there’s more eyes and more pressure” .

Trevor He went on to say that his 40th birthday was a turning point for him. He explained, “I wanted my forties to be cool. I want to look stylish; I want to be a better leader; I want to be fitter; I want to go to my 40’s screaming. I don’t want anyone laughing at me. I don’t want to be in wasp I want this band to continue to run so fast, and I want to be head of a nimble older Metalhead band. Fortunately, in metal you Could you Metalhead is older. It’s not like pop music where they throw you away. Fortunately, this music is as much about the past as it is about the present and the future. People will always love classic metal recordings. And that’s something I enjoy about it. This is not the disposable music you love for a week and throw away.

“I see this band going for another 20 years. But to be physically able to do it at this level and not excel at all, we will focus on health, longevity and sanity as well. [Laughs]”

He added, “You left me alone with my thoughts all this time [during the pandemic] It was just too dangerous for me.”

study He also revealed that he is about to undergo ketamine therapy as a way to treat his depression. “It’s in a vein,” he said. “They pump ketamine inside you over two weeks – three days a week for two weeks. And they put you in this euphoric state for a few hours. And eventually you’ve done it enough to where your brain makes new pathways, new synapses, and you stop doing this cyclical kind of thinking.” – Self-defeating. I’ve been a lot better now, but there have been times when the bullshit has gotten too dark for me over the past couple of years.

“You can go in there as an emergency if you’re really crazy about suicide – they can take you in an emergency. You’re basically as high as the fuck and exhilarated as the fuck, and they’re just giving you all these cool chemicals – you’re releasing all these happy chemicals and things from And they keep doing that to you until you rewrite the way you think.

Referring to his life during the pandemic, he continued, “Really, that put a nail in the coffin for me about the way I look at the world, and it was heavy as fucking,” referring to his life during the pandemic. “I feel like there’s no happy ending for either of us the way we set up everything – the government and just everything. I feel like it’s going to be darker and darker from now on. And that’s a lot for anyone to think about it all along. He basically stole any little bit of The innocence I left or any little blinder I had on the way. It was heavy my friend. It was such a ridiculous thing to me… I was caught by all this now and out of my own feelings. It basically brought my anxiety to a peak. It’s So much so that I have to do something.”

Founded in 2000, Kill the black dahlia Named after the famous unsolved murder of the famous actress in 1947 Elizabeth Smart – He had a number of shows scheduled for later this year, including an appearance on May 20 in Daytona Beach, Florida Welcome to Rockville festival.
