At just 40 years old, Elijah Nelson of Black Breath may no longer be with us, but he certainly left behind some good vibes:
“Incredibly proud to have known this awesome dude for the short time he was around.”
“I knew Elijah. He was a top-notch human.”
“Rest In Peace to true rocker and a wonderfully genuine and kind dude. Always a pleasure when we’d cross paths.”
“I met him briefly at a Black Breath show in London, smoked a joint with him outside and he was the nicest, most humble dude.”
“I worked with him for about a year at Everyday Music back in 07-08 and he was one of my favorite coworkers of all time. A one-of-a-kind goofball metalhead.”
Turns out he was a pretty good pinball player, too, according to this interview in 2013 with SCION.
Elijah sounds like a stellar human being who just wanted to play pinball and hang out. Not fair that he’s gone from this earth so young.
If you haven’t listened to their 2015 album “Slaves Beyond Death” in awhile, you should do that tonight.
