May 15, 1968 – June 11, 2011
Seth Putnam was the founder and lead singer of grindcore band, Anal Cunt (A.C., AxCx) Formed in the Boston, Massachusetts area in 1986, A.C. found its loyal following thanks in part to their aggressive playing and controversial lyrics. In their early days, they generally went into the studio or hit the stage with no pre-written music or lyrics and developed their songs as they went along. Over the course of the next 25 years, A.C. released eight equally offensive to some studio albums and several EP’s and compilations. Outside of the band, Putnam performed in numerous side projects and lent his vocals to recordings by the likes of Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, and Napalm Death. In October of 2004, Putnam went into a coma after overdosing on a large quantity of Ambien. Whether or not he was attempting suicide was never made clear. Seth Putnam died of a heart attack on June 11, 2011. He was 43.
