It is with extremely heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Basil, frontdog of death-grind legends Caninus. Noisecreep is reporting that Basil was put to sleep last Wednesday after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Caninus is the side-project of Most Precious Blood’s Justin Brannan and Rachel Rosen. The band was fronted by two pit bulls, Budgie and the now-deceased Basil. Charred Walls of the Damned / Howard Stern sidekick Richard Christy played drums on a few of their tracks and plans to contribute to a final Caninus record dedicated to Basil, due later this year. When asked whether he planned to continue on under the Caninus moniker after this next record without his best buddy Basil, Budgie simply said, “woof.”

No, but seriously… we know how pets can touch peoples’ lives and we’re sincerely sorry to hear about Basil’s passing. R.I.P., and our condolences to Justin and Rachel.

Im not surprised that a pitpull fronted a deathgrind band seeing as all death and grind sounds like that anyways.

As you can tell, these bands take their music very seriously.

You wonder why people on this board slag you? Its becuase of these willfully ignorant statements. Listen to Death, then compare them to Caninus. Not only does the music sound drastically different, but so do the vocals.

I read the title of this thread and thought to myself "Holy shit, there's a metal band with a 9 year old singer and he died?" That would have only been half as weird as what it is actually about.

This sucks more than Pete Steele and the guy from Slipknot combined.
Actually I've only heard the split with Cattle, but still.
2011 is off to a bad start.

Yeah, that's essentially 2010, in hindsight.

Ehh, as much as I was giving Turtle Boy shit for this yesterday, it still sucks. Caninus is a fun band.

Out of curiosity, did anyone actually care about Caninus prior to this?
Not- knew of them, enjoyed the record, funny concept (or probably for the majority of people here- funny concept!) but like, did they have real diehard fans?

To me, I don't see a band like Caninus having "die-hard" fans. To me they're kind of in the same boat as a band like Excrementory Grindfuckers.
