RIP Michael Trengert

Michael Trengert, R.I.P.

A little late posting this, for which I apologise. Michael wasn’t someone I ever worked with, but – along with a hell of a lot of you, I expect – I enjoyed the results of his work. This man had a huge effect on the metal world and in helping get many of the bands that we all love into the studio, on the road and making music.

I’ll let the press release give more details:

Last week, Michael Trengert passed away. Michael was the longtime label manager of Metal Blade Europe and helped bands like Amon Amarth, Cannibal Corpse, Six Feet Under, The Crown, Brainstorm, God Dethroned, Neaera, Vomitory, Powerwolf, Primordial and many, many others to release albums, play tours and festivals. To make careers. He’s been close friends with nearly all the bands he worked with and even if they were not on the label anymore, he has always been there for them.

He also helped many individuals to start careers in the music industry and to make a living of what he loved most – Metal! A true believer of the musical extreme, a real friend who was always there when you needed him. An honest character, someone you would listen to since his words always had a meaning.

Michael Trengert.
One in a million.
Loving husband and father.
True friend.

You will be sorely missed by everyone who knew you. We love you and you will forever be in our hearts!
