Former Malevolent Creation frontman Bret Hoffman has passed away aged only 51. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in April and the disease finally took its toll.
Hoffman’s wife, Kimberley, broke the news in a public post on her own facebook feed earlier today:
Today is the saddest day of my life I just lost my soul mate the love of my my best friend has passed away I will always love u Bret Malev Hoffmann RIP my love
Hoffman was also involved with Fire For Effect, Silent Death and Down the Drain.
As ever, our thoughts are with the Hoffman family, their friends and their musical acquaintances. We choose to celebrate his works and commiserate his passing with a sample from the back catalogue. Give ’em hell, Bret.
