ex-King Conquer bassist Adam Whited dies

R.I.P.

Adam Whited, founder and bassist of the defunct Floridian deathcore band King Conquer, has died, according to his brother Chris Whited.

Chris announced Adam's death via Facebook Tuesday afternoon. His statement is as follows:

It's very odd to be writing this. From as far back as I can remember you were why I did the things I do in this life. I played baseball because of you, I skateboarded because of you, I wanted to know how to fight because of you, I started playing music because of you, I played my first show because of you, I did my first tour because of you, my first ever tattoo was for you, the reason I'm so strong mentally is because you told me I had to be when we ran away from home, and the reason I'm okay with matters like this is because you taught me how to look for the best in things at such a young age.

My next tattoo will be for you, and the next piece of music I write will be for you. I promise to remember the happy times and the hard times! "Brothers Till The End"

I love you Adam Michael McNee Whited.
I'll see you on the other side dude.

Adam and Chris founded the band in 2002, originally under the name Dark Skies Have Fallen. A few years after releasing their first EP in 2005 and changing their name to A Horror Story, they renamed the band King Conquer.

Well we know he didn't die from the vaccine, based on King Conquer lyrics. So what was it?

No clue who this band is but bummer nonetheless. With that said, it's insanely tacky to post eulogies on Facebook.

Like for real- hit the link to the gofundme! Smoke show brah.

Finally, he'll be dressed like an adult.

Scumbag commenter here. I've had so many friends die from heroin overdoses that I'm desensitized to good taste. What are you going to do? This is Biden's America. f*ck all liberals.

The "Related News" for this band is a wild ride ^^^^^ You ain't bullshitting. This band used to play the Dirty Dog in Austin all the time but the last time I saw them live was 2013. The last four years of that band's existence, after they stopped coming to Austin, was a Jerry Springer-level shitshow.

one of my first shows ever was an A Horror Story show. Good dude, condolences to his family. RIP

Who

His brother needs to stop doing things cause other ppl do them.

Sad read, but change your shit!y band name.


anonymous 241 days ago

No care ever

Scrolling down to Related New... this band was doomed from the start. Wild shit!


anonymous 241 days ago

Sadly he will never be able to find out how they plan to break up Roman Reigns' Unified Title belt at WWE Summerslam

Hung out with these dudes yeeeears ago, most of them were cool as f*ck, esp Chris and Adam. John was a f*cking asshole, probably the biggest scumbag ever….but this sucks. RIP

Either this band is cursed or there needs to be an opioid shakedown wherever the hell these guys are from. Way too many dead members of a band that never really took off. Sad.


anonymous 239 days ago

Look at all you anonymous internet bullies. Imagine if this was your son, father, or brother. Anyone talking shit about a dead person who can't defend themselves, while the family is mourning AND can't show their name or face while doing so is a literal piece of shit. RIP Adam

Disable crowdkillers think of bandkillers
