Rigor Mortis/ Warbeast vocalist resisted until yesterday.
Bruce Kendall Corbitt, the vocalist of both classic Thrash Metal band Rigor Mortis and Warbeast (formerly Texas Metal Alliance) died yesterday – January 25 – from Esophageal cancer (the sixth most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide). He was diagnosed in May 2017.
Rigor Mortis acted from 1983 to 1991 and returned in 2005 recording the classic self-titled debut in 1988. Their last album was Slaves to the Grave recorded in 2014. Lately they were acting as Wizards of Gore, but it’s unclear if the band will continue.
Another member, Mike Scaccia (Ministry), died during a Rigor Mortis’ gig at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas, on December 22, 2012 from heart attack.
Bruce Corbitt survived a stab and a heart attack. He fought to the very end. Condolences to his family.
