Ex-Volumes Guitarist Diego Farias Dies
Both were involved in the Los Angeles-based prog-metalcore act until just recently, Gus as the unclean vocalist of the outfit. Each parted ways with the group near the end of last year, with Diego confirming his departure in a message Jan. 29. The month prior, Gus claimed he was "kicked out" of Volumes.
Gus' sudden announcement Thursday sent a shockwave through the underground music community. See fellow musicians' responses to the news and tributes to Diego down toward the bottom of this post.
