The Black Dahlia Murder announce frontman’s death

Death metal band The Black Dahlia Murder took to Instagram to announce the passing of frontman Trevor Strnad.

“It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad,” the statement started. “Beloved son, brother and shepherd of good times, he was loved by all who met him.

“A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.”

As reported by NME, the 41-year-old was one of the founding members of the Michigan-based band, which released their first demo in 2001. Strnad and rhythm guitarist Brian Eschbach were the only constant members of the group.

After a handful of independent EPs, the musicians went on to sign with Metal Blade Records, which would become their long-time label. The Black Dahlia Murder have dropped songs such as Child Of Night and The Window.

An official cause of death has not been confirmed but the band shared the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at the end of their post.

Trevor Strnad made cameo on girlfriend’s OnlyFans

As fans celebrate the life of Trevor Strnad, some are remembering the cameo he made on the OnlyFans account of his girlfriend, who goes by the name Violet Knox online.

To promote his appearance, the frontman tweeted: “Fellow pervs: I may or may not be featured in a new couples video dropping on my girlfriend @cakefarts666‘s OF tonight. Subscribe and like her newest post to be sent the DM you’ve been waiting for all your life.”

The Black Dahlia singer had been publicly supportive of his girlfriend’s career on OnlyFans and frequently retweeted her promotional content.

The video featuring Strnad, however, is no longer available and Violet Knox’s account has been taken down. The profile now reads: “Please do not subscribe. This page is getting shut down.”

Strnad’s partner has yet to address the musician’s passing.

Trevor Strnad talked about his passion for metal and horror

In an interview with Echoes And Dust in 2020, Strnad opened up about his love of metal and horror and where his passion started before he launched the band. “I used to cruise the metal aisle and look at all the artwork in the record stores back in the day,” he shared.

“Once I really figured out there was music about dragons, skeletons and sh*t like that, it felt perfect for me. Once I had opened that book, there was no stopping me.

“I feel like the average person doesn’t see the merit in our culture and our world and doesn’t see how passionate we are, how it gives us so much life. It’s definitely been instrumental in shaping who I am.”
