LIFELOVER Mainman Dies

On the night of September 9, Jonas Bergqvist (a.k.a. B) the founding member, main composer, and guitarist of the Swedish "narcotic metal" band LIFELOVER died unexpectedly. The cause of his death is still unclear and has yet to be established.

Commented the group's record label, Prophecy Productions, in a statement: "The message of Jonas's passing came as a surprise to the Prophecy team. Hence we lack the appropriate words for this tragic event.

"To us, Jonas wasn't just a very creative artist, but also a pleasant and enthusiastic person. It is for certain that we won't be the only ones missing his character, his passion, and his unique musical language.

"In the face of this tragic loss, we would very much like to extend our heartfelt condolence towards Jonas's family, his friends, and the remaining musicians of LIFELOVER."
