Herbert had completed work on their upcoming ninth album, Victims of the New Disease, which is scheduled for release next month.

One fan wrote: 'A sad day for metal fans and ATR fans everywhere!

AE and ATF toured together years ago and Oli always used to come out and see us play when we came through his area.

Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti called Herbert "a great talent and a great human being", while Arch Enemy's Michael Amott said he was "the nicest guy" and that "the metal community has lost another great musician way too early". "I'm stunned. So long, Oli".

'Hello everyone this is Beth, Oli's widow, ' she wrote.
