Blabbermouth has issued the following tragic news yesterday: Guitarist / vocalist Dave Gorsuch of the long-running San Francisco Bay Area Death Metallers INSANITY has issued the following update: "It is with the heaviest of hearts I post this update. Our dear friend and bandmate Bud Mills (drums) is finally at peace after a hellish battle with esophagial cancer. A few of his close friends and I were there with his wife Megan when he passed sometime after 1am last night (November 14). Although this was the worst night of my life, I feel privileged to have been there with him, his wife and our other friends. I am still in awe of the tidal wave of support and love he received from his very special circle of friends and family. He was not only an amazing talent but an amazing person with a huge heart, wit and sense of humor. His loss is completely devastating and will leave a huge void in all of our lives. He really appreciated all of the comments and support he received from his friends, fans and the metal community. We need to keep that support going for Megan and all of us grieving his loss. Local friends and fans are welcome to his service which although not yet 100% confirmed will likely be Saturday at 3pm at First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame – www.burlpres.org 1500 Easton Dr, Burlingame – (650) 342-0875 which is where he and Megan were wed. Once again thanks for all of your support during this hellish time." In the summer of 2007 as the band was preparing to record and preparing for shows in Northern and Southern California, Bud was diagnosed with bloodclots. After more tests cancer was discovered and it turned out to be esophageal cancer stage 4. The pre-production tracks Bud recorded prior to his death are being mixed and will be released in the near future on the "Visions Of Apocalypse" album.
