In Memory of Tom Rojack

I thought I’d end my tribute to Cleveland metal properly, in honor of Cleveland guitarist and vocalist Tom Rojack’s life. Shredder, Tom Rojack, pioneered the Ohio metal scene, playing in many great bands such as Decrepit, Funeral Pyre and Civil Disobedience but is perhaps most well known for his work in death metal outfit Blood of Christ.

Passing unexpectedly in 1997 at the tender age of 28, due to complications after falling down some stairs, Tom led a full life, contributing much to the metal scene. He is remembered not only for his superior musicianship but also for his jovial personality.

Tom is missed and celebrated by many to this day. Let’s all take a moment to commemorate the work of Tom Rojack and listen to some fucking Blood of Christ! Throw some horns. Happy Listening. Hails!

  1. Tom was a good guy, he went out of his way to be nice to me when I was new on the scene and didn’t know many people. A fine musician as well. He is missed.

  2. I still listen to DECREPIT regularly; sadly, I can’t name anybody else who does. In this age of INCANTATION knock-offs some DECREPIT reissues would be a great idea.
