Exhorder Bassist Frankie Sparcello Passes Away

Posted by on March 23, 2011

Exhorder bassist Frankie Sparcello reportedly passed away this past Tuesday (March 22). More information regarding his death is expected to be announced soon.

Sparcello joined the New Orleans groove/thrash metal group prior to Roadrunner Records releasing 1992 The Law. Though they disbanded shortly after, Exhorder reunited numerous times since 1998, but reformed officially in 2008. Since then, the band had been reportedly working on new material and planning more shows (including this year’s Maryland Deathfest). Where the band currently stands on those plans is still unknown.

We’ll keep you posted when more develops. Our thoughts are with Sparcello’s family and friends.
