Ruinside Bassist Lauri Aitonurmi Dies in Car Crash
Finnish metallers Ruinside are currently mourning the death of their bassist Lauri Aitonurmi, who passed away after a car accident on Dec. 14.
While he was most recently known for his work with Ruinside, who released their full-length debut, ‘The Hunt,’ in October of this year, Aitonurmi was a musician from the age of 11. After four years of playing the keyboard, Aitonurmi picked up a bass at age 15, maintaining the instrument as his primary tool until his passing.
Ruinside posted the following statement to memorialize the death of their beloved bassist:
Our beloved friend and bassist Lauri Aitonurmi passed away on December 14th 2012 in a car accident. We will remember him as a very bright person who always shared good spirit around him. Ruinside wants to wish strength and hope for Lauri’s family, his wife and little boy. Lauri will live in our hearts and in our music. Rest in peace, friend.
We’d like to send our thoughts and best wishes to the family, friends and bandmates of Lauri Aitonurmi. See the bassist in Ruinside’s recent music video for ‘Shower of Accusations’ below.
