Oli Herbert, guitarist and co-founder of Massachusetts metalcore act All That Remains, has died aged 44.

According to group’s publicist, Herbert passed away unexpectedly from an accident at his home, while the news of Hebert’s death was confirmed in a statement from the band:

“We were devastated to learn that Oli Herbert, our friend, guitar player, and founding member of All That Remains, has passed away. Oli was an incredibly talented guitarist and song writer who defined rock and metal from the Northeast. His impact on the genres and our lives will continue indefinitely. No further details are available at this time. The band and family request that you please respect their privacy and remember Oli by celebrating the great music he made.”

Following the band’s statement, publicist Suzanne Penley shared more details around Herbert’s death:

“On behalf of Oli’s wife and family I can confirm that Oli Herbert passed away yesterday unexpectedly as a result of an accident which occurred on the property of his home. He was 44 years old. No further details are being released at this time. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be announced once that information is available. The family requests for privacy during this time but does wish to express their appreciation to fans worldwide for the outpouring of condolences.”

Herbert formed the band back in 1998, with former Shadows Fall vocalist Phil Labonte in Springfield, Massachusetts and played on all of their records. Since their inception, All That Remains have released nine albums and sold over a million records worldwide, with Herbert’s final LP is set for release 9 November.

While the band was known for their heavier sound, each record brought something new to the table, including a chart-topping cover of the decidedly very un-metal, Garth Brooks’ country hit ‘The Thunder Rolls’ from 1991.

Earlier in the year, Herbert announced his own signature Rhoads model electric guitar in partnership with Jackson Guitars and the band was excitedly anticipating their UK and European tour to support the new record.
