Rigor Mortis and Warbeast singer Bruce Corbitt passed away today (Friday, January 25) following an 18-month battle with esophageal cancer. He was 56 years old. Corbitt's diagnosis was originally revealed in May 2017 and the cancer progressed to Stage 4 by the beginning of 2018.

In late-2018, Corbitt announced that he had entered hospice.
