METAL CHURCH: Mike Howes Tod Selbstmord

Veröffentlicht am 30.07.2021 um 13:14 Uhr

Wie berichtet, verstarb METAL CHURCH Sänger Mike Howe unerwartet am 26. Juli 2021. Er wurde nur 55 Jahre alt. Wie die Polizei vor zwei Tagen bekannt gab, spielten Alkohol und Drogen dabei keine Rolle (Artikel auf Rock Hard).
Nun veröffentlichte TMZ, US Klatschpresse, einen Artikel, laut dem ein Sprecher des Humboldt County Sheriff Departments bekannt gab, dass die offizielle Todesursache Erstickung durch Erhängung lautet. Sein Tod wird es Selbstmord eingestuft.

Auf der offiziellen Facebook Seite von METAL CHURCH wurde ein Statement veröffentlicht, indem die Band das amerikanische Gesundheitssystem und "Big Parma" anklagt:
"OFFICIAL BAND STATEMENT: If you knew Mike Howe, then you knew he was a truly good human being who loved his friends, his family and his many fans around the world. He would always go the extra mile to make someone feel good and he would always give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. We ask that you remember Mike in that way and for the amazing metal music he created. As to what really happened? He was victimized by a failing healthcare system and subsequently poisoned by the venom of big-pharma. In short and in essence, he fell prey to the real "Fake Healer"...enough said. #truth Godspeed Mike Howe, WE LOVE YOU!!!"

Dieses hat die Band nun gelöscht und durch ein neues ersetzt, in dem sie zum einen das vorherige klar stellen und zum anderen auch bestätigen, dass es Suizid war:

"Concerning our recently deleted post addressing the news that Mike's passing was a suicide, we wanted to dispel any misconceptions that might have arisen from certain media reports," METAL CHURCH wrote in its latest post. "In our efforts to do that, our attempts at honesty created a narrative that fell outside our purest of intentions. We were in no way, shape or form referring to anything in relation to vaccinations, COVID or politics. We were saying our brother was hurting and while he was seeking medical care for it, the treatments he was utilizing did not protect him. Otherwise, he would still be with us today.

If you knew Mike Howe, then you knew he was a truly good human being who loved his friends, his family and his many fans around the world. He would always go the extra mile to make someone feel good and he would always give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. We ask that you remember Mike in that way and for the amazing metal music he created.

This is an extremely difficult time for everyone who knew Mike personally and those that knew him through the music. We are all still processing the loss of our brother. We apologize that the original statement was misunderstood or created an incorrect dialog. We ask that you please stop attacking each other in relation to Mike's passing and METAL CHURCH. We ask that you take that energy and use it to keep Mike's memory alive by sharing the music he created while he was with us. We want METAL CHURCH music to bring people together as it has over the years and not be divisive.

Godspeed Mike Howe, WE LOVE YOU!!!"


METAL CHURCH befanden sich seit der Rückkehr Howes 2015 auf einem Höhenflug und Howe beeindruckte mit seiner großartigen Form. Das ist ein schwerer, tragischer Schlag für alle Fans. Großes Beileid an seine Familie, Freunde und Bandkollegen.
