Erik Lindmark Of Deeds Of Flesh

Unique Leader Records Founder/Deeds Of Flesh Guitarist Erik Lindmark Passes Away


Unique Leader Records founder/Deeds Of Flesh guitarist/vocalist Erik Lindmark has passed away following a battle with sclerosis. The label put out the following official announcement earlier today, November 29th:



It is with great sadness that we must announce that our CEO & Founder, Erik Lindmark, passed away today after battling with Sclerosis.

The indelible mark he has left on the Death Metal genre is monumental, both as a business man and as a musician. After building this label from scratch with his Deeds bandmates, Erik took Unique Leader to a level he had never expected it, or the genre, to get to.

During his time in Hospital, Erik was absolutely implicit with his instructions to staff to go full steam ahead with the label in his absence- which is exactly what we intend to do.

That being said, we will not be releasing anything in January so that we can make the necessary adjustments and delegations within the company. We would like to thank you all for your well wishes, support and kindness toward Erik on socials and via private correspondence.

There is a gofundme setup for Erik‘s daughter Bella (5) and his wife- link below.

Rest in peace Erik. You were a true warrior.”

Fallujah, who got their early break on Unique Leader Records, were among the first artists to pay tribute to Lindmark, stating:

“We just learned of the passing of Unique Leader Records founder Erik Lindmark. He took a chance on Fallujah when we were still in school working on what would become The Harvest Wombs. We, and the west coast Death metal scene along with a lot of other bands you all know and love owe a lot of their early careers to Erik and Unique Leader. Our condolences to his family and friends.”
