Rest in Power: Tim Aymar Passed Away
Another powerful voice in metal has sadly gone silent, as Tim Aymar passed away at 59 years old. A man with many credits to his name, he’s mostly known for his time fronting Chuck Schuldiner’s post-Death project Control Denied and Pharoah.
Aymar’s death was confirmed by his former bandmates via social media, stating that they were hurting today but couldn’t wait to share their memories of Aymar with their fans.
We are very sorry to share the awful news of the passing of Pharaoh’s one and only singer, Tim Aymar. Tim has meant so much to so many people, whose hearts are suddenly flooded with sadness but also memories of his life and music. We look forward to sharing some of our own memories when the right time has come. Until then, we are joined in sorrow and gratitude with all of Tim’s family, friends, fans, and fellow musicians.
Along with Pharoah and Control Denied, Aymar sang for a number of bands, including 313, Triple X, and Psycho Scream. His time with Control Denied saw him sing on the band’s only album, The Fragile Art Of Existence.
Given his proximity to Schuldiner and his project, the remaining members of Death released a statement offering their condolences for the loss.
It is with deep sadness that from several sources it would appear that Tim Aymar has passed away. Our deepest and most sincere condolences to his friends and family.
We at MetalSucks wish to follow in everyone else’s footsteps in offering our condolences to Aymar’s friends, family members, and former bandmates. Rest in Power, Tim — thanks for the tunes.
