Andrew "Mac" McDermott, the former lead singer of UK progressive metallers Threshold, reportedly passed away in England last Wednesday, August 3rd. He succumbed to kidney failure after spending four days in a coma. He was only 45 years old.
McDermott had "serious health problems" in the months leading up to his death, according to a June 2011 statement from the German melodic metal band PowerWorld, with whom McDermott recorded the 2010 album Human Parasite.
Commented Threshold guitarist Karl Groom: "Mac played a large part in the story of Threshold and appeared on five studio albums. He also sang on numerous fan club releases and live albums. Although I have not seen him since 2007 for the last video shoot in Leipzig, he still remains in our minds and there is a big sense of loss. I have spoken to and seen ex-members of the band over the last two days who are all very saddened by this turn of events. We remember Mac as being so vibrant and full of life, so find this news is hard to accept."
