What a terrible way to die for a guy like him... Should spin To Mega Therion in his memory but I'm far away home.
RIP

Ironically enough, I listened to that album yesterday..

May he just rest in peace after such terrible death. His art will remain influential 'till the end of days.

I am devastated. This man was the single biggest inspiration on my life and my art and my future. I can't really express this properly right now.

A loss for genuine art, and the art community. Was just admiring some of his art a couple of hours ago. A true shame.

Horrible news, though his great art is going to live forever.

His books Necronomicon I & II and BioMechanics are some of the greatest things I own.

R.I.P

And so influential... His Art was and is huge. Got the chance to meet him twice in Paris. There I saw one of the greatest art exhibitions of my life with most of his most famous paintings, original ones in full size and it was breathtaking...
It was so INTENSE to behold such pieces "in the flesh"
Now I'll have to go to his museum/chateau in Switzerland, at last.

He created a whole art paradigm: Biomechanic... A sad death.

All hail HR
