Richard Brunelle, former guitarist for death metal legends Morbid Angel, has passed away at age 55. A cause of death has yet to be disclosed.

Ex-Morbid Angel drummer Pete Sandoval had this to say: "This is really sad! So many great memories we shared together that I'll never forget, hope and wish you are in a better place. My condolences to his family."

Brunelle was a full-time member of Morbid Angel from 1985 until 1992, playing on their first two albums, Altars of Madness (1989) and Blessed Are the Sick (1991). Brunelle was allegedly kicked out of the band due to struggles with substance abuse.
