“I will forever remember September 25th at 6:48 p.m. This is when I received the most saddening, heartbreaking phone call I’ve ever received. My brother and best friend for the past 27 years has past and is no longer with me. Brent you will forever be missed and loved. I cherish every memory we have together. We shared so many great times and monumental moments in our lives together and I feel we still had so many more to go. You will forever be with me and so many others. Heaven received a beautiful person yesterday and you will forever be missed. I love you. Rest In Peace.”

 

“We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young.

We did our first USA tour and a mini European run together along with the Blue Demo and ‘Ember to Inferno’. Nothing but amazing memories.

Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends. RIP Brent”

 

“I met Brent a few times in the past, so I didn’t know him to well. But I have played a lot of songs he recorded on Ember to Inferno live and he was a big part of the early years of the band. I want to send my deepest condolences to his friends and family.”

 

 

We send our thoughts to Young’s family and friends during this difficult time.
