In sad news for the worldwide doom community, Iron Man guitarist Al Morris III has died.

The 60-year old, the only original member of the Maryland band that formed as a Sabbath covers band in 1988, passed away on January 10 after a long illness that had restricted the group’s activity for several years. Before Iron Man, Morris was a member of the pioneering late 70s-early 80s doom act Force.
