0

Bruce Corbitt, vocalist for Warbeast and Rigor Mortis, has passed away. He was 56-years-old.

After announcing he had cancer of the esophagus in May of 2017, initial treatments did not go well. But Corbitt was accepted into a clinical trial for a new kind of treatment in early 2018, and as of June of last year he announced that he was responding very well to it and that the cancer in many parts of his body had been eliminated. Corbitt even performed live with Warbeast in July, something he never imagined would be possible after his official farewell performance with the band back in May of the previous year.

Unfortunately, in a recent social media update, Corbitt revealed that the treatment had ultimately not been as effective as they initially thought, and that he was now in hospice care.

MetalSucks’ thoughts are with Bruce’s friends and loved ones during this extremely difficult time. Rest in power.
