Cannibal Corpse Issue First Official Statement Concerning The Arrest Of Their Guitarist Pat O’Brien

Cannibal Corpse issue their first official public statement regarding the recent arrest of their guitarist Pat O’Brien, who currently faces charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault.

The guitarist broke into a neighbors residence having spoken of “the rapture” and reportedly also commenting that “aliens have landed”.

Deana Mazurkiewicz – wife of O’Brien‘s Cannibal Corpse bandmate Paul Mazurkiewicz – launched a crowdfunding campaign for O’Brien, asking “people not jump to conclusions until the full details of what occurred come out.” In a statement made to share the link for the aforementioned crowdfunding campaign, Gary Holt (Slayer/Exodus) says:

“He needs help, is gonna need help for a while, not talking about legal help, although he will need that too. But he’s gonna have a long road to travel. This is for his rehabilitation. People think Cannibal Corpse are millionaires and shit, they play death metal. One can make a living at it but they ain’t rich and he lost EVERYTHING. Help a metal brother out”

Cannibal Corpse are scheduled to open for Slayer on their North American tour that kicks off in May.
