Metalobit: Leon Villalba and Tim Kennelly

Two members of After Death, Leon Villalba and Tim Kennelly, have drowned while on a trip to Brazil.

The band, which formed in 2005, was in the country supporting Master on tour. They'd been on the beach at Aracaju when Villalba got into difficulties. Kennelly tried to go into his aid, but he, too, was overwhelmed by the force of the waves. Other band members - and passers by - were unable to rescue either of the men.

Kennelly had joined the band last year, around the time of the release of their Eulogy EP.

Leon Villalba was 21; Tim Kennelly was 18.
