Late ALL THAT REMAINS Guitarist's Home To Be Repossessed

According to the Hartford Courant, the home where ALL THAT REMAINS guitarist Oliver "Oli" Herbert lived and was found dead may soon be on the foreclosure market.

The bank that gave Herbert the initial $132,000 mortgage to buy the Stafford Springs, Connecticut house is asking a judge to grant a strict foreclosure on the property and allow it to immediately take possession of it.

Oliver and his wife, Elizabeth Herbert, purchased the home in 2013 for $135,000.

The Freedom Mortgage Corporation filed a foreclosure notice in June alleging that the guitarist hadn't paid the loan for the home. Herbert never contested the foreclosure and a judge issued a default motion against him for failing to appear in September, in effect granting the bank's foreclosure.

Oliver was found dead at the edge of the pond on the property in October 16. Connecticut police are are treating his death as suspicious.

Last month, Elizabeth Herbert released a since-deleted statement via his official Facebook page in which she revealed that Oli drowned after apparently ingesting antidepressant medication and sleeping pills.

ALL THAT REMAINS singer Philip Labonte said that he was "shocked" by Oli's death. "He was 44 years old, and he wasn't really a big partier," Labonte told Meltdown Of Detroit's WRIF radio station. "He would go hang out with people and stuff, but he didn't really do a lot of drinking… He didn't do drugs, he didn't really drink a lot. He would smoke pot once in a while, but that was the extent of it."

Herbert began playing guitar at 14. He co-founded ALL THAT REMAINS with Labonte in 1998.

ALL THAT REMAINS has released nine studio albums, a live CD/DVD, and has sold more than one million records worldwide.

The surviving members of ALL THAT REMAINSLabonte, Mike Martin (guitar), Jason Costa (drums) and Aaron Patrick (bass, backing vocals) — have just completed a European tour with SEVENDUST. Guitar virtuoso and YouTube personality Jason Richardson (ALL SHALL PERISH, CHELSEA GRIN, BORN OF OSIRIS) filled in on the trek.
