Alessandro Fillari said: “Ryan Karazija, front man of Low Roar, has passed away. I’m saddened by this, his music in Death Stranding and LR’s other album were so soulful and comforting. His songs really gave me comfort during the 2020 lockdown. He was a truly talented artist.”

“Rest In Peace Ryan. Low Roar is one of my favourite bands and is too underrated. Everyone needs to listen to this today,” another wrote.

While another person said: “Death Stranding introduced me to the wonderful sounds of Low Roar, a band I try to introduce as many as I can to as their sound is just incredibly emotional. Very sad to read this today. Thank you Ryan.”

Another person added: “Rest in peace Ryan Karazija. I used to listen to Low Roar on the long bus rides to high-school when I was just a kid. That band got me through a lot and still does to this day. 💔”

“‘Sometimes you feel like this is never ending, but we all fade away…’ Rest in peace Ryan 💔” another wrote.

“Such sad news 😭💔… The music Ryan made is amazing and beautiful. I became a fan of Low Roar after Death Stranding. Rest in peace 😢…” a Twitter user said.

      People don’t normally “die suddenly” from pneumonia and a young person like him would normally get over it easily, so something isn’t right about the stated cause of death.
