Tony Särkkä - Passes Away

The Swedish musician Tony Särkkä, aka "IT", who played in many bands, including Ophthalamia, Abruptum and War, has died. He also did guest vocals for both Marduk and Dissection in the 90's.

His sister posted a message on his Facebook page: "Greetings. It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the sad news that my dear brother and soulmate, to you known as IT, left his Long Journey on Mother Earth. He will forever be with us in heart and mind, as the great thinker, philosopher and genius he was. IT was truly a unique character and those of us who got the privilege to meet and know him in person can consider ourselves lucky. I will try to keep his legacy on this page, but please feel free to help me out. He will never be forgotten. I love you forever. //Desire - sister (and manager since 1987)."

Sad news. Early Abruptum is the shit and will always be some of the most evil material on musical form.
Wonder if his autobiography (?) will ever come out....
