Ex-Caedere, Shinigami, Grindpad and Detonation drummer (39) Allard van der Kuip died


Dutch long-running death metal band CAEDERE posted a message on their Facebook that their former drummer Allard van der Kuip died at the age of 39. He has also been the drummer for Shinigami, Grindpad, De Woanzin and Detonation. Allard van der Kuip also went by the name of Lardie. No cause of death has been revealed.


R.I.P Allard van der Kuip! Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones. Such a talented and colorful person, gone way too soon.
Allard joined Caedere in 2010/2011. His technical drum work definitely shaped the sound of Caedere for the Corruption EP and it’s follow up The Lost Conyenance.
His first show with Caedere was at SWR Barroselas, whilst opening the main stage. Although being super nervous, he layed down the fastest Mass Emission version we ever did live!
Wherever you are Allard, “Make it so”!”
