Boston punk metal band Post Mortem has issued the following statement about vocalist John McCarthy passing away:
"John McCarthy the singer for Post Mortem has died. He was 40. He was/is one of my oldest friends. An interesting character with many great stories to tell, he will be missed...
"We had just finished recording the music for a new Post Mortem record (John wrote most of the words for it.) The vocals were not done and John was planning on doing his vocals in February. His goal of making another Post Mortem record has ended. This band was everything to him. I think we’ll finish it up somehow and dedicate it to him..... See ya John!!"
Boston's punk metal grandfathers POST MORTEM have announced plans to reform in some form in the near future. Vocalist John McCarthy is the only member remaining from the 1980s-'90s period. They will also be starting their own record company, Taboo Records, an off-shoot of their tape label, which has existed since the early '80s.
POST MORTEM was formed on March 22, 1982 in the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts. The definitive lineup was finally settled on in early 1985. This consisted of: John McCarthy (vocals), John Alexander (guitar), Mark Kelley (bass) and Rick McIver (drums). Their first album, "Coroner's Office", was released in 1986 on New Renaissance Records, followed in 1987 by the EP "The Missing Link" (featuring female guitarist MELDRUM) on the same label. In 1989 "Festival of Fun" was recorded, but was deemed "too inaccessible" by the label it was recorded for. So POST MORTEM 'stole' the tape and released it as a "bootleg" two years later. The final release by POST MORTEM was "Destined for Failure".
