The following satement was issued:
“Our dear friend Warrel Dane, who achieved fame with the bands SANCTUARY and NEVERMORE, passed away of a heart attack in São Paulo, Brazil while recording what was to be his second solo album.
For over 30 years, Dane had been one of the strongest singers in heavy metal, giving voice to a wide tapestry of different genres and forms using his incredible falsetto and precise harmonies.
Warrel had a one of a kind voice. The highs, the lows, the grit, the charm… he had it all.
His smile, infectious energy, and incredibly kind heart will forever be in our memories.
Warrel meant so much too so many.
In honor of Warrel, his beloved Seattle family are holding an informal community wide gathering, offering everyone who felt touched by his life, in any way, to share the grief of this loss and the joy of his sweet memory.
