Former Corrosion of Conformity vocalist Eric Eycke, who performed on their highly influential debut album, 1984’s Eye for an Eye, has passed away. The cause of his death hasn’t been confirmed yet, however, Blabbermouth stated he was, “reportedly been in hospice with various maladies.”
The band shared the following statement:
“We are saddened to learn of the passing of one time COC vocalist Eric Eycke, whose broad musical knowledge shaped the band’s early identity and whose energy is evident on our first hardcore era album “Eye for an Eye”. This simply does not seem real. We traveled far and wide in a shitty van,blowing up stages together, trying to live up to the likes of The Bad Brains and Black Flag.”
Our hearts go out towards Eycke’s family and friends during this difficult time.
