After the recent passing of our friend and brother and founding BTH Guitarist Ron Kuczuk the remaining guys decided to keep the band going because they knew that's what Ron would have wanted. Bassist Aaron asked me if I was interested in playing and I said absolutely. Keeping the legacy going... I had two practices this past week with Tyrant Trooper (Justin), Aaron and Allyan Lang Lopes and we can already play the 5 songs from the "Doomsday: The Rise of Valhalla" CD. We're working on new songs this week. We will be writing new material for a future Ear One Productions release and playing shows very soon including a huge benefit in Ron's memory.

Ron Kuczuk, guitarist for Connecticut's Bonded Through Hate has reportedly passed away from pancreatic cancer. Kuczuk had been dealing with a staph infection in 2012 which led to the loss of his leg. In the last year, as he fought through those issues, he was admitted to the hospital for stomach pains from fluid buildup and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Kuczuk also played on the 1993 Tyrant Tooper demo "Moral Extinction" and full length LP "Insance Sickness," as well as with death metal act Slumlord. Bonded Through Hate released its debut EP "Doomsday: The Rise of Valhalla" last year via Ear One Records.
The band has not yet issued an official statement, however, a post on the fallen guitarist's Facebook wall came from former Tyrant Trooper bandmate Rick Brayall, and reads as follows:
"It is with an extremely heavy heart that I have to inform everyone that my bandmate, my friend, and my brother, Ron Kuczuk, has passed away. I know most of you will find this extremely shocking as did I. As most of you know Ron had been dealing with issues stemming from a staph infection last year which left him with the loss of his leg. Several setbacks had knocked him down in the last year and a half but did not knock him out. He was fighting all of his issues like we would all expect him to, like a Trooper. He was always very private with his issues and never wanted to worry anyone. Recently he was admitted into the hospital with stomach pains and fluid buildup in the belly. After running tests it was discovered that his issues were being caused by pancreatic cancer. He was found to be in advanced stages and the outlook was not very good. He was still willing to fight but unfortunately it already was really too late. Ron passed early this morning peacefully and with no pain. Arrangements are expected to be on Saturday 8/31 in Planstville but I will update everyone when all of the details have been worked out. The family would also welcome everyone to leave kind words, or any stories and memories on his page. More...
