Maryland based doom metal band IRON MAN guitarist Alfred Morris III is unfortunately no longer with us. He passed away this morning at the age of 60. Their Facebook page confirms the same news and the cause of death is unclear at this time. Alfred being one of the founding members, carved out some of the most ghastly doom riffs during his time in the band. He managed guitar duties on most of the band’s studio recordings. He has also showcased his abilities on the keyboard on the band’s 1993 debut, ‘Black Night‘ and the subsequent year’s sophomore effort,’The Passage‘.
Alfred Morris III was also involved in a different band called FORCE with whom he recorded just their debut EP and their eponymous debut full length in 1981 and 1991, respectively.
