I can’t believe this. RIP Alexi. You are the reason I started playing guitar, the reason I began listening to metal, and my biggest inspiration the last 17 years when I discovered your music. I’ll never forget hearing Hate Crew Deathroll for the first time, it opened me up to a whole new world and your music has brought me more happiness than you could ever imagine. You seemed like a great person outside of music, and were always someone I looked up to. You will be greatly missed!
