Former Deadlock drummer Tobias Graf has died at the age of 35.

Graf co-founded the melodic death metal group in 1997 and remained a member until April this year. He left the group citing a change in “life and priorities.”

Deadlock’s label, Lifeforce Records, have issued a statement saying: “Long-time dear friend Tobias has passed away. We can hardly express the sadness in our hearts. We wish his family all possible strength in these dark hours. Farwell Tobi – may you have a safe journey.”

The band released a double compilation album, The Re-Arrival, last month. Their last studio outing was 2012’s The Arsonist.
