Warbeast and Rigor Mortis vocalist Bruce Corbitt has passed away at the age of 56; Housecore Records confirmed the sad news on their Facebook page. Bruce was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2017, and tried various treatments, including a clinical trial that intially seemed effective. He performed for a final time with Warbeast in July, a three-song set as part of the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Ceremony. However, his condition took a turn for the worse, and he entered hospice care earlier this month. Rest in Peace, Bruce.

A Phil Anselmo-narrated documentary called "Rigor Mortis - Welcome To Your Funeral: The Story Of Rigor Mortis Part 1" was released in 2016, and is currently streaming free if you have Amazon Prime. The trailer and more videos below:
