Nevermore, Sanctuary singer Warrel Dane dies

Heavy metal vocalist Warrel Dane, primarily known for his work with Sanctuary and Nevermore, passed away today (Wednesday, December 13) in São Paulo, Brazil. Dane reportedly had a heart attack during the night and efforts to revive him failed. Guitar player Johnny Moraes, a member of Dane's solo band, was with Dane in Brazil recording a new album and had this to say to UOL: "He was in the apartment where he stayed during the recording of the album when it happened. I gave him cardiac massage and we called the Mobile Emergency Care Service (SAMU), who came very fast, but when they arrived, he was already dead."

Should have lifted more sheetrock.

You can tell by dude's hat that he'd never lifted an ounce of sheetrock in his life. That's the real tragedy here.

Absolutely stunning voice this man had! He was like the David Bowie of metal! He will be sorely missed! The selfish part of me hopes enough of his new solo album was completed to warrant its release!

He looks like the chick singer from arch enemy. In that photo and also a week from now when he is decomposing and decrepit.

Always liked the story about the chick with pancake nipples that did blow in an airport bar in front of him. RIP sir.

I had a prostate massage by a Brazilian hooker once. Woke me right up.

Will be truly missed. I saw them at every live show in Chicago since 2004.
