Former Trivium member Brent Young, who played guitar and bass with the band between 2000 and 2004, has died.

The news was announced by frontman Matt Heafy, who wrote, “We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young.” No cause of death was given.

Young played on Trivium’s 2003 debut album Enter the Inferno, as well as early demo recordings.

“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,” Heafy wrote.

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