Adrian passed in his sleep, from complications due to pneumonia.

A trust account will be set up in Adrian's name where if people want to make donations, they can. Donations will go towards the Canadian Cancer Society. A cause very close and dear to Adrian.

There will not be a funeral service nor a wake for Adrian. A memorial event will be planned for the near future, where people all can gather to share their memories of the life and their times with Adrian.

OK, we have confirmed a date for the memorial for Adrian, it will be on Saturday Janurary 17 @ The Opera House, In Toronto. All are encouraged to attend.

More details will be listed in the next couple of days, with an official announcement thread made as well.

Amen to that. He's been a pleasure to work with and know personally for the past 15 years.

He will be greatly missed. He did a lot for the Toronto metal scene in so many ways.

Rest in peace Adrian

I am so going to miss him. I'm just fucking stunned.

Godspeed Mr. Bromley. I met you at ProgPower in 2007 and it felt like I found a long lost Brother.

I will miss you dearly my brother. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Jason

Was terribly sorry to hear the news. I regret that I never got to meet him; he was always a lively and positive presence on the phone and online, and I know that he will be missed by many, and by some, deeply.

Deepest condolences to his family and Renee.

The Bromley Chainsaw. That guy who can carry on three conversations at once while sleeping. Lord Vinyl Pillager. The Energizer. Mister Pink Bunny. Adrian.

I got the terrible news last night as I was spinning some Solitude Aeternus, drinking the nectar of the gods (ok, it was Miller Lite), and surfing the few metal sites I frequent, and casually thinking I’d bump into him as always.

Shellshock.

I think back to all the fond memories of MPB, from first meeting him in person at ProgPower V in Atlanta in 2004, to hanging out and sharing hotel rooms and other friend’s places at future ProgPowers, the Testament Reunited gigs in DC, and on his home turf of Toronto for the spectacular coming-together of people and bands that was Day of the Equinox. He introduced me to real Canadian bacon, Orphaned Land (literally and musically), and was an ambassador of metal.

He was everywhere, had his hands in everything, knew everyone, and could finagle all kinds of shit. I remember hitting up Deathgasm Records with him a few years back in suburban Atlanta and he walked out with a FIST, not just a couple, but a heavy-duty FIST of Deathgasm releases and distro stuff—all after handing the fellas there a couple copies of U! and talking to them for about 5 minutes. That’s how he always seemed to move through life. “Here, have this shirt—the band gave me 3 and I only need one.”

The Web of The Energizer.

Through Adrian, I got to meet many great people that I still hang out with/chat with to this day. He was always the connection, whether they be boarders, bands, promoters, industry people—you name it, he was entrenched in metal, connections, and camaraderie. Always on the promotional prowl, he was constantly plugging underground bands. “Band X is AMAZING!” or “If you want on the guest list for show Y, just email me…”

Calls/emails.

“Yo, Zeke—it’s Adrian—you know what’s going on with Woods of Ypres?”

Words that never failed to get me salivating. He’d drop a juicy tidbit or two, and off he’d go, maybe for just a day or maybe a month or two, but there’d always be another call.

Until now.

The email I got this morning said he passed away in his sleep peacefully. I was completely shocked by this, I just talked to him the other day on the phone and he sounded fine.

Rest in peace Adrian. My prayers are with you and your loved ones.

FUCK. This is not the best way to start a monday off. I've had the pleasure of knowing Adrian for a few years now and you'd be hard pressed to find a more generous and overall nice dude.

RIP Adrian

I'm totally shocked here..
Every time I got to hang out with him, he was nothing but a total sweetheart, who was tons of fun.. I'm lucky to have met him.
My thoughts go out to his family, friends, and especially Renee. :(

Wow, I did'nt know him, but I recall him always being around the board. It seems many of you were very good friends with him, seemed to be a great person as well. This is pretty shocking, even for me, so I can only imagine how some of you must be feeling. :o :(

RIP.

Wow. I'm shocked. I only got to hang out with him once, but it was easy to tell even from that that he was a great guy. Awful news.

RIP dude. :(
