Bassist Tomá Čelechovský of the Czech Republic-based classical symphonic power metal band Symphonity (formerly Nemesis) has unfortunately lost his battle with pancreatic cancer on June 27th.

The band left the following message on their website: "It has been almost a year since the last news entry on our website. Many of you asked for any news about the band, new record and it's my duty to share these news finally with you. While writing you last summer about some difficulties we had to deal with, nothing I knew of what was going to happen this year. In 2010 Olaf's wife Petra was diagnosed with stomach cancer and soon passed away. This was the reason why Herbie stepped in to fill for Olaf and we didn't have to cancel the show in Zlin. It seemed for a while that things would go back to normal when a twist of fate came again."

"Even though it's not an easy task, with sorrowful heart, I would like to let you all know that our band-mate and bass player of Symphonity, Tomá Čelechovský, lost his battle with pancreas cancer in the evening of Wednesday, June 27th, 2012. He fought hard to his very last breath but this uphill battle could not be won."
