    Jeff Hanneman, a co-founder of the seminal heavy metal group Slayer, has died of liver failure at the age of 49, the band has announced.

    In a statement posted on its Facebook page on Thursday, the band said: "Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother ... passed away at about 11am this morning."

    Slayer spokesman Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald said the guitarist died at a hospital in southern California with his wife, Kathy, by his side.

    Hanneman had been suffering since 2011 from a flesh-eating disease that he is believed to have contracted from a spider bite. According to reports, it nearly cost him his arm after he failed to seek immediate treatment.

    Ms Robinson-Fitzgerald has said it is thought the bite contributed to the failure of his liver, but it is not yet clear if a post-mortem examination will be scheduled.
    Hanneman was a founding member of Slayer, which was known as one of the 'big four' thrash metal groups of the 1980s - along with Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax.

    "When I was 12, I milked my eel into a pot of turtle stew. I flogged the one-eyed snake, I skinned my sausage. I made the bald man cry into the turtle stew, which I believe my sister ate. At least I hope she did."

    Damn that's crazy news. Never really was a slayer fan but there is no denying that they were a driving force in putting metal on the map. Although I may not really be a fan this guy really could shred! Sad day for the metal world.
