It’s with sadness that we report the passing of Behold! the Monolith singer-bassist Kevin McDade. The frontman died tragically in a car accident on June 21.

McDade fronted Behold! the Monolith since 2007, releasing an eponymous EP in 2008 and a self-titled full-length album in 2009. The band’s most recent recording is the 2012 full-length ‘Defender, Redeemist,’ which carried on B!tM’s history of blackenedstonerdoomthrashsludge metal.

McDade’s two Behold! the Monolith band mates, Matt Price and Chase Manhattan, posted a heartfelt memorial of their fallen frontman, officially announcing McDade’s sudden passing through the band’s official website and Facebook page:

We are deeply saddened to report the loss of our band member, friend and brother Kevin McDade in a car accident early Friday evening. Needless to say we are absolutely devastated by this. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his parents, family and girlfriend.

Thanks for the time we had and the music we made together. We will, and already do, miss you terribly.

-Chase and Matt

Kevin McDade was known by his friends as someone who could always make them laugh. The musician even made a handful of funny videos with his pet dogs and guinea pig, with videos of McDade’s pug Enzo air-drumming to Converge, Absu and Extortion having made the rounds on metal forums. To celebrate the life and music of Kevin McDade, check out Behold! the Monolith’s ‘We are the Worm’ below.
