Heavy Metal Singer David Wayne Dies

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — David Wayne, the original lead singer of Metal Church, has died due to complications from injuries sustained in a head-on automobile accident several months ago.

Wayne’s scratchy vocals gave depth to several Metal Church albums, and helped to launch the singles “Gods of Wrath,” “Watch the Children Pray,” and “Start the Fire.” He was in the process of returning to the metal scene with a new band lineup. The new band had just completed several new songs and were ready to head into the recording studio after a string of European dates scheduled for this summer.

An official press release read: “On behalf of David Wayne’s Metal Church, we would like to express our deepest sorrow in the passing of our Metal Brother, David Wayne. This is not only a loss for us as a band and his family, but also millions of ‘Metal Heads’ throughout the world.” –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
