Early Trivium bassist/guitarist/backing vocalist Brent Young has passed away. The band’s frontman/guitarist Matt Heafy commented of his passing earlier today, September 26th, offering:

We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young.
Having had a couple wonderful years with Brent in the Florida local band scene, doing the Blue demo and ETI together, the very first European mini-tour and first USA tour together – I have nothing but amazing memories of a wonderful person.
Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends.
As Heafy stated, Young notably appeared on the band’s 2003 debut album “Ember To Inferno“, taking on the bass duties on nearly every track. His cause of death was not disclosed.
