Seth Edward Putnam (May 15, 1968 – June 11, 2011) was the founder of grindcore band Anal Cunt. He was known for his brutal screaming and lyrics that either shock, offend, or invoke morbid humor. Throughout his career, Putnam had been involved in many side projects, including backing vocals on Pantera's The Great Southern Trendkill.
Seth Edward Putnam was born on May 15, 1968, in or around Boston, Massachusetts to father Edward R. Putnam and mother Barbara Ann Donohue. Both he and his parents are divorced. In the mid-1980s, Putnam played bass in the thrash metal band Executioner.
On October 12, 2004 Seth Putnam was hospitalized after ingesting 2 months' worth of Ambien sleeping pills. It has been reported that he spent the previous day contemplating suicide, though exact circumstances surrounding the drug overdose are vague. Putnam's reaction to the irony of being in a coma was published in the Boston Phoenix, "Actually, it turned out it was just as gay as the song I wrote nine years ago — being in a coma was just as fuckin' stupid as I wrote it was."
On June 11, 2011, Putnam died of a heart attack at the age of 43
