Sad news has surfaced in the metal world today. Founding Lord Mantis drummer Bill Bumgardner has passed away.

Bill was the only remaining Lord Mantis member at the time of his death. Earlier this year, Lord Mantis put out NTW, their first release with Bill’s former Indian bandmate Dylan O’Toole, who joined Lord Mantis after Indian broke up. (Lord Mantis’ former singer Charlie Fell is now in Cobalt.)

Bill also released the Defecation of the Tabernacle EP with Burning Churches this year.

Rest in peace Bill. You’ll be missed.
