Shane Bisnett, former member of Ice Nine Kills, passed away earlier this week. Bisnett, age 31, died on January 1st in New York. He leaves behind a wife and two children. A funeral will be held on January 10.

Bisnett played bass and provided clean vocals for Ice Nine Kills from 2009 until 2011.

Ice Nine Kills vocalist and co-founder Spencer Charnas had the following to say:

"I was so heartbroken to hear of Shane's passing. He was such a kind and wonderful guy who always had a smile on his face. His laugh and charm were absolutely contagious. I remember when I first met him I already felt like we had been best friends for years. Not only was Shane a loyal friend but he was also an incredibly talented musician. I will always cherish the memories of us creating music together and touring the country with our band. I love you bud. RIP.

My heart goes out to his friends and family in this difficult time."

I am so incredibly sad to hear that my old friend Shane Bisnett died on New Year's day. Shane was an immensely kind and talented musician who had such a powerful and beautiful tone to his voice. In addition to touring with Ice Nine Kills for years, Shane also wrote a ton of the great melodic elements of our 'Safe Is Just A Shadow' album with me. I'll always remember those cold Rochester, NY nights in 2009 working on songs with him and searching for that "perfect chorus" together. Shane was built like a tough looking dude, but as soon as you engaged with him you realized what a lovable and gentle soul he was….and that smile! He was the kind of dude that would always have your back, no matter what. This video of us playing was filmed probably around 2010 when the band was still crashing on people's floors after shows. It breaks my heart that I'll never get to play music with him again but I'm so thankful that I got to know him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. RIP my man. #RIPShaneBisnett

Look at all you sadistic fcks going on and on "Was He killed by Ice Nine???" and "I'm still looking for the tough looking dude" In a world full of hate all this bassist cared about was love. He banged about 40 broads in the last 5 years alone. The stories -- how he battered nice, glimmering, tight pussies with his stiff, enormous c-ck and turned them into punched lasagni. You sick, sick, barbaric brutes.

So, do most of the people who comment here play in shitty metal bands and have severe social problems?

I wonder what it's like to never get out if your teenage angst. You all must make dead baby jokes too
