"Two members of British heavy metal band After Death have drowned on tour in Brazil.

The body of 21-year-old guitarist Leon Villalba washed ashore shortly after he was seen struggling in heavy waves on a beach in Sergipe state.

Bass player Tim Kennelly, 18, who was with him in the water is missing and police say he too has drowned.

After Death had just begun a 23-date tour in Brazil.

Miguel Freitas, managing director of the band's label Death Toll records, confirmed the drowning."

The death of a young man is never a cause for amusement.  But I bet their manager wishes, for the moment, that both their band and their record label were called something different...
