UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS Founder ERIK LINDMARK Dies After Battle With Sclerosis

November 30, 2018

Erik Lindmark, CEO and founder of Unique Leader Records and vocalist, guitarist and founding member of DEEDS OF FLESH, has passed away following a several-month battle with sclerosis. He was only 46 years old.

The label has released the following statement:

"It is with great sadness that we must announce that our CEO and founder, Erik Lindmark, passed away today after battling with sclerosis.

"The indelible mark he has left on the death metal genre is monumental, both as a businessman and as a musician. After building this label from scratch with his DEEDS bandmates, Erik took Unique Leader to a level he had never expected it, or the genre, to get to.

"During his time in hospital, Erik was absolutely implicit with his instructions to staff to go full steam ahead with the label in his absence — which is exactly what we intend to do. That being said, we will not be releasing anything in January so that we can make the necessary adjustments and delegations within the company.

"We would like to thank you all for your well wishes, support and kindness toward Erik on socials and via private correspondence.

"There is a Gofundme set up for Erik's daughter Bella (5) and his wife.

"Rest in peace, Erik. You were a true warrior."
