  • stantheclam

    I’ll be first to say wasn’t a big fan of the music but RIP Mitch. Could only imagine what pain friends/family/fans are going through.

    I know it won’t change anything but imagine this way your best friend here guys – internet is faceless but lets have some class here before we post anything stupid.

    Damn, man. Sad. Young dude with a young kid. All the best to those who will miss him.

  • Crowbar233

    Never really a huge fan of the band but it’s always sad when
    someone who’s not even 30 goes away, especially in such an awful way.

  • AMeN

    The guy had a family and a kid, what a shame, plus he seemed like a really humble dude considering the fast success of his band.

  • zaodriver

    I Just saw the pics on this site of Mitch in his Halloween costume. Sucks. That just sucks. Cool dude from I read/saw about him via interviews. Condolences for those who knew him and his family.

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    Sad day for his fans. Sounds like he needed more CORE and less DEATH. Sorry, that was in bad taste. But a little dark humor doesn’t hurt.

    • My Farts Linger

      Too soon.

      • Stereotypical Evil Archer

        Humor in a time of mourning. Some appreciate it, some don’t.

    • Relentless_Beating

      85% don’t. Those people are considered not assholes.

    • They Ate Their Macaroons in Silence

      Wow, cockboy, please teach me to be as funny as you someday.
      Sorry you must not get much attention and playful human interaction at this time in your life.
      Who cares how anyone felt about the music, I wouldn’t wish any child deprived of a positive parent.. or worse, a parent that is still living and made a choice to be absent.
      I’m happy to hear the general voice of this site is supportive and compassionate.
      Gratitude, joy, and appreciation for what I have. (:

  • BloodyBoneKummer

    Dude was incredibiy humble.
    Met them on the Megadeth tour a few years back.
    They invited me on the bus to drink and hang out.
    Shit got too crazy and their tour manager kicked me off the bus.
    Mitch and Dan left the bus, followed me to my car, then left with me to go to a bar the remainder of the night.
    Totally chilled dude.
    R.I.P. brotha

  • The Shark™

    Whether or not you were a fan of Suicide Silence is irrelevant, this is tragic news. R.I.P. Mitch.

  • RhiNo

    Not a fan of their music, but I do realize this is a sad day for his band, family metal. His impact on the metal world was undeniable. R.I.P. Mitch

  • PeAcE MiNuS 0Ne

    Unreal… This is terrible, terrible news. I am not even a big fan and it still is terrible news. RIP Mitch.

  • Dudebrodie

    Horrible news. Mitch was so so nice to everyone he met. Feel so bad for his little one. RIP

  • Vitamin Doom

    fuckin’ tragic man. shame that something that clearly brought him so much joy led to his untimely demise. RIP \m/

  • http://www.bondage.org monkeywithagun

    Sorry to hear about what happened no one should have to go that way. I only can imagine what his family, friends, and bandmates are feeling right now.

  • Dred Furst

    Absolutely terrible news. RIP Mitch

  • kturl69

    I’m a huge fan of Suicide Silence. I’ve been listening to them since the very start. I saw them @ The Magic Stick 4 years ago and Mitch was the only dude who came and chilled after the show. My buddy texted me earlier and told me this news and I didn’t believe it. It’s pretty unreal. R.I.P. Mitch dude. \m/

    Too soon…

  • Afghanistam

    people die in accidents every minute of everyday. We should all consider ourselves lucky to make it to 28 and beyond. Anything can happen at anytime. Go calla friend and tell them you love them today. Help a complete stranger out today. We might not get that chance tomorrow.

  • Relentless_Beating

    Haven’t been a fan of this band for a long time, but I gave this guy major respect for what he did, and believing in it to the fullest extent. Far too young to go, and really sad for his child, and family.

    RIP.

  • allichs

    may he rest in peace

  • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

    You could tell this guy had a passion for what he did weather you like him or not, Metal has suffered a tragic loss today and I send condolences to his friends, family and fans. R.I.P Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence.

  • ethos

    This really does suck. I didn’t really like his music, and I definitely didn’t know him personally, but judging from this site’s reaction we’re down one less good dude in the world. rip man

  • mertdiggie

    wow unbelievable, my father passed away june 3rd 2009 on his bike from some person who made him swereve off the road and he never recovered, the fucked thing here is, my dads birthday was halloween. i can only imagine what mitch’s friends and family are going through cus ive had to do it. but as a member of the metal community and a fan or even if you arent a fan, mitch had one of the sickest voices in metal, he could just fucking make ya feel like he was ripping out his whole vocal box in every song and make it look natural. the music world will miss him. condolensces to his band members, and his family.

  • scorpions

    RIP Mitch. You will be missed man…

  • jimmer_jammer

    sad thing to hear, did a very good job live and always got the crowd going, RIP Mitch.

  • SpinSwimScream

    I haven’t really been a big fan since their album ‘The Cleansing,’ but man that album helped me get into heavier music. For that, I always had respect for the band and Mitch was a great singer live. My dad also died on Halloween. Such a weird day to associate with death. I can’t imagine what his family and friends are going through. Rest in peace, Mitch.

  • 8 bit ninja

    It’s understandable that some may not like their music but I don’t think we need so many people prefacing their comment with those sentiments. What’s more important is that we honor our fallen brother in metal no matter if it’s, Death, Core, Screamo, whatever. R.I.P. man, you kept it heavy.

  • Crowbar233

    So apparently he was drunk as shit when he jumped on his bike, his wife even tried to stop him from going out. Some may some alcoholism is a disease but getting on your bike is a choice, lucky he only killed himself.

  • MARIACHI EL willX

    I hate to hear of someone dying, even someone from a band I dislike. However, how could a person, a father on top of that, go out drunk driving on Halloween? No too smart. Don’t drink and drive, and for sure, not with trick o’ treaters (err..spelling) out walking around. At least he only killed himself. Hate it for duder though.

  • Dudebrodie

    Yea supper sad day for his family. Was in a band with Mark before he joined em so we all played the same venues (showcase theater) and hung out. Great dude, so humble.

  • dr.3000

    For as much as this guy loved his wife and daughter, it seems he loved the bottle a bit more. It’s sad it had to end this way, but at least he didn’t harm anyone else.

    • dr.3000

      after reading there he almost took out a few kids that were trick-or-treating, i have no sympathy at all for this asshole. the world is a better place today without this selfish prick.

      • Dudebrodie

        Try telling that to his 5 year old daughter. I agree it is always selfish to drink and drive (obviously the worst mistake he ever made) but a child lost her dad.

  • Rev.J_Blumpkin

    This news hit me very hard as I was a huge fan of this band. I respected this guy for being a really dedicated performer, and always treating his fans well. More though, I am a father of a very young daughter too, and I know that losing a father at that age is beyond devastating. Thats what you see if you google image search mitch, a lot of daddy/daughter pics. If your a parent you know how much the love of your child means to you, and vice versa. So it is so tragic and my sympathy goes out to his family and friends.
