“We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young,” Heafy wrote.

“Having had a couple wonderful years with Brent in the Florida local band scene, doing the Blue demo and ETI together, the very first European mini-tour and first USA tour together – I have nothing but amazing memories of a wonderful person.

“Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends.”
