Jared W. Anderson (December 28, 1974 – October 14, 2006) was an American death metal musician best known as the bassist and vocalist of Morbid Angel from 2001 to 2002 and Hate Eternal from 1998 to 2003.[1]

Jared Anderson formed his first band, Internecine, in December, 1997 at the age of 22, and saw his six-year career interrupted in 2003 when he was forced to leave Hate Eternal as a result of struggles with a drug dependency.[2] He co-wrote all of the songs for Internecine with Shannon Purdon released two demos, one in 1993 and another in 1997. Book of Lambs was released in 2001.[3]

Jared Anderson died in his sleep of an unspecified cause two-and-a-half months before his birthday.[4][5] Shortly before his death, he had started a new project called As One... with Steve Tucker, also a former member of Morbid Angel.[6] His last recording was a guest appearance in The Allknowing's cover of Motörhead's "Ace of Spades"[7] which, since 2007, has been freely accessible online.[8]

The 2008 Hate Eternal album, Fury & Flames, was dedicated to Jared Anderson's memory.
