Former MORBID ANGEL/HATE ETERNAL bassist/vocalist Jared Anderson's final recording — a guest appearance with the Ohio-based band THE ALLKNOWING on a cover of MOTÖRHEAD's "Ace of Spades" — has been posted online at THE ALLKNOWING's MySpace page.Commented THE ALLKNOWING bassist Jason Vie Brooks (ex-GRIP INC., HEATHEN): "Jared came out and laid this track down about a month ago during tracking for our upcoming debut CD, 'Ours for the Taking'. "Jared and I knew each other for a long time. Since back in the day when he played guitar with Steve Tucker [ex-MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist] in a band called SUFFER SYSTEM. He was an awesome guy, a real dude. "I asked him to sing on this track because as long as we knew each other, we never got a chance to play together and thought it would only be fitting as my first tour with GRIP was opening for MOTÖRHEAD and his last tour with MORBID was with MOTÖRHEAD also and seeing how we were both in a musical rebuilding period, it just seemed fitting. I, along with the rest of the world, would have never imagined this would be the last thing he recorded. "So check it out, tell everyone who is a fan of Jared's about it, download it, whatever. He never got to hear it but last night at one of our shows, we played it for him over the PA. Lots of cheers from the crowd. It was cool to hear a couple hundred people sing along to it. He would have loved it. "I hope you all dig it!" As previously reported, Anderson died in his sleep on Saturday, October 14 at the age of 30. The cause of his death has not yet been released. Funeral services for Anderson were held on Thursday (October 19) in Ohio. Jared was most recently working on a project which was known by its alias AS ONE... Back in February 2006, former MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET that he and Anderson were collaborating on new material in the "death metal" vein.
