Original All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert has passed away

Oli Herbert, original member and lead guitarist of rock band All That Remains, has passed away at age 44. The band made the sad announcements via Facebook and Instagram posts this morning (Oct. 17).

“Oli was an incredibly talented guitarist and song writer who defined Rock and Metal from the Northeast,” the post states. “His impact on the genres and our lives will continue indefinitely.”

“No further details are available at this time,” the post adds. “The band and family request that you please respect their privacy and remember Oli by celebrating the great music he made.”

Herbert was a founding member of All That Remains when the band first got together in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1998. Herbert and singer Phil Labonte had been the only current original in All That Remains since 2006. Herbert was seen as one of modern metal’s most promising players, with an ability to create vicious, heavy guitar parts as well as melodic lines.

All That Remains is set to release a new album, “Victim of the New Disease,” on Nov. 9. The group is also slated to being a U.K. tour in support of the album in December. There’s been no announcement as to whether those plans have changed due to Herbert’s passing.
