Simon Oberender Dead: Beyond the Bridge Guitarist/Keyboardist Passes Away
Metal Underground reports that the cause of death is not known at press time.
Orebender just performed with Beyond the Bridge at the ProgPower festival in Atlanta two weeks ago. It marked the band's first-ever show in the U.S. The band released their debut album, The Old Man and the Spirit, in 2012 via Frontiers Records.
The band did post an image of the late musician on its Facebook page, but further comment has not been shared. Fans have taken to commenting to express and share their grief.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Oberender and his family, as well as the band, for this tragic loss.
