I had heard I late May that Ralph Santolla had suffered a heart attack. I initially held out hope that he could pull through, but then I read that his mom had asked friends to visit and say their goodbyes.

He played/wrote with Death, Deicide, Obituary, Iced Earth, Millenium, Devil’s Highway, Jorn, Cryptic Vision, Holy Moses, Cannabis Corpse, Crimson Moon, Inferi, Eyewitness, Monarch, Sebastian Bach among many others, plus his solo albums.

He will be missed in the metal community. Peace brother.

(I will be reviewing Iced Earth – The Glorious Burden as a small tribute to this great guitarist.)
