Martin Eric Ain RIP

The Swiss heavy metal band Celtic Frost were the most influential act of their kind, introducing avant-garde experimentation and gothic ambience to the metal genre. Bassist Martin Eric Ain (born Martin Stricker) was a visionary musician who co-founded the band Hellhammer with guitarist/vocalist Tom Gabriel Fischer in 1981, and remained alongside Fischer when Hellhammer became Celtic Frost three years later. He stayed until that band’s dissolution in 2008, and died on 21 October of a heart attack at the age of only 50.
