Ex-Holy Terror Frontman Keith Deen Dies: Singer Passes Away at 56
Former Holy Terror vocalist Keith Deen has passed away.
The singer of the ’80s Los Angeles-based thrash group lost his three-month battle with cancer on Thursday (Dec. 12). He was 56.
“With the loss of Keith Deen, a part of me is gone as well,” said Holy Terror guitarist Kurt Colfelt about his former bandmate’s passing.
A former member of speed metal act Agent Steel, Colfelt formed Holy Terror in 1986. The band went on to release two studio album — 1987’s Terror and Submission and 1988’s Mind Wars — before parting ways.
Colfelt reformed Holy Terror in 2005, but his attempts to get Deen involved were futile.
