Members Of SLASH, TESTAMENT, CREED, BIOHAZARD & More React To The Tragic School Shooting In Connecticut!

Earlier today, tragedy struck at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. At least 27 people were killed, including 18 children, in a shooting, according to reports from The New York Times. Our hearts go out to the children, their families and all their friends.

Here is what various members of the Heavy Music world had to say about this:

"The Conn elementary school shooting is horrific. Those poor kids & their families. I'm speechless." - Slash

"We extend our condolences to the families of Newtown, CT who lost children and loved ones today. Our hearts are broken." - Ronnie James Dio's Team

"I don't care if you believe in God, Allah, Buddha, or anything for that matter. Pray for those children and their families!" - Mark Tremonti (CREED, ALTER BRIDGE & TREMONTI PROJECT)

"Just now getting latest news ie Connecticut. Unthinkably horrifying. Sad day for many & for the US. Enough already. What will the pro-gun constituency say now- to start arming 4th graders? Responsible Gun Ownership = Fine. Current System = Not Working." - Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT)

"We are devastated to hear about the horrible events in Newtown, Conn. Our thoughts goes to everyone involved and deepest condolences to the victims families." - IN FLAMES

"Deeply shocked and sad on this horrible news today.... my heart goes out to all involved in this tragedy. I just want to go home now.... much love and respect! xxx" - Roy Mayorga (STONE SOUR)

"My hearts and prayers go out to the families of Newtown, CT... another sad day in our history!! Those days are growing faster than I ever imagined possible!" - Billy Graziadei (BIOHAZARD)

"Columbine high school in 1999 was a bunch of deranged and abused students that were taking revenge on their schoolmates for their "apparent abuse." Obviously, they were all deranged and committed a heinous act. But this is above and beyond anything that anyone has ever seen. And the fact that it was a team of shooters is just unfathomable to think about or comprehend. Loss for words right now... All of the victims are in my thoughts." - Jeff Kendrick (DEVILDRIVER)

"For the record, I am for the right to bear arms,but we should at least be able to have an honest discussion about the gun obsession in the US. I apologize for the venting, but it just pisses me that this keeps happening over and over again. It's a tough, complex problem. - Doc Coyle (GOD FORBID)


"My heart goes out to all the families and children affected in Connecticut." - Full Metal Jackie

"Really what can be done? Do we need barbed wire and guards at Elementary school. We can't remove all the guns. Tell me what can we do?" - Rikki Rachtman
