Deathlike Silence

I regret to announce the passing of original SODOM drummer Chris Dudek (a.k.a. Witchhunter) this week. No further information is available but I'm guessing from recent interviews that he probably died as a result of alcohol related complications. Witchhunter had been out of the music scene for many years until recently but his barbaric drumming on Obsessed By Cruelty and Persecution Mania inspired generations of kids to bash on things with sticks. After all these years that devastating sound is still hard to capture. Thanks for the bleeding ears, Withchunter! Bombenhagel!
