SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren has commented on the passing of DECAPITATED drummer Witold "Vitek" Kieltyka, who died in a Russian hospital from injuries sustained in a recent road collision. He was 23 years old.

"I'm truly devastated about this untimely passing," Dirk said in a statement. "Vitek was without a doubt one of the most talented and hard-working extreme metal drummers around. He was a great inspiration to me, a mind-blowing force behind the kit. To die at such a young age and in such dramatic circumstances is just horrible. My deepest condolences to his wife and child, his family and friends, and to the band. Vitek will be sorely missed. R.I.P. Vitek."

Christ, this is a big deal in the metal community now. Perhaps this truly will escalate them to the ranks of "unsung metal legends" kinda deal.

..feels like Vitek drum beats hit those words forever:
"unknown peace descended over me,
not that I was familiar with,
the peace that descends when life transcends to death.
death... the beginning of eternal silence."
