Jeremy Deacon, the former bassist of South Florida-based female-fronted extreme metallers WYKKED WYTCH, has died of lymphoma at age 33. The band’s vocalist Ipek Warnock said, “[Jeremy] was a great friend and kind/gentle soul with great talent. I’m very saddened with heavy heart and shock!! This is the second member we lost from that era. Timur, [former] WYKKED WYTCH drummer, was the other member died from suicide few years back.
“[It’s] very sad to lose a band members and friends who have made an impact in my life personally and for the band!
“Thanks for the great memories, Jeremy, hope you find Timur wherever you are and jam WYKKED WYTCH tunes! RIP, brother!!”
WYKKED WYTCH‘s fifth full-length album, “The Ultimate Deception”, will be released on February 14 via Goomba Music. The follow-up to 2008’s “Memories Of A Dying Whore” “continues where its predecessor left off and pushes the boundaries of extreme music as well as the legacy of WYKKED WYTCH,” according to a press release.
