It is with a heavy heart that I write this. As most of you out there already know, on the morning of November 9 our friend Athon, bassist of Black Tusk, passed away. Savannah, the world and the metal music scene as a whole has lost one of the most genuine, talented and inspiring people there ever was.
12 years ago the first Hyperrealist release came out and Athon was right here with us, stuffing 7" records into poly bags. Today we are still releasing records that he was a part of. He has been a part of this family since day one and I can't begin to express what a loss this is to us.
The amount of love and support shown by friends, fans and the music community the world over has been tremendous and truly speaks volumes about his character and the impression he has left on those who have met him.
We love and miss you, brother. You live on through us all. See you again someday. TCBT
Hyperrealist is currently undergoing some very large changes. Please order any Hyperrealist titles through Robotic Empire or Shirt Killer. More details on whats happening here soon. Thanks.
