Former Hypnosia Drummer Passes Away At 27 Due To Skin Cancer

Former HYPNOSIA drummer Mikael Sjöstrand passed away on Thursday, January 8 after a battle with skin cancer. He was 27 years old.

A highly acclaimed Swedish thrash/death metal act, HYPNOSIA split up in June 2002 after a seven-year existence that produced a seven-song EP (1999's "Violent Intensity", Iron Fist Productions) and one full-length album (2000's "Extreme Hatred", Hammerheart Records). No reason was given for the band's break-up.

At the time of their split, HYPNOSIA were hard at work on the material for their second full-length album, which carried the working title of "World Sacrifice".
