Karma to Burn founding guitarist Will Mecum has reportedly died


Founding guitarist of Morgantown, West Virginia stoner rock and metal vets Karma to Burn, William Mecum, has died, sources tell MetalSucks.

Will was apparently on life support before passing away on Thursday, April 29th. Both Will’s Wiki entry and Metal Archives bio currently note ‘accident’ as Will’s cause of death.

Official accounts for Karma to Burn have not released a statement on the matter, and New Noise report that Rob Oswald (ex-drummer of Karma to Burn) broke the news in a Facebook post on Thursday.

Will founded Karma to Burn in 1994 with bassist Rich Mullins and drummer Nathan Limbaugh. Will served as the only original member of the band’s current lineup, which is rounded out by drummer Evan Devine (who joined in 2012) and bassist Eric Clutter (who joined in 2015).

Karma to Burn have recorded seven full-length albums since their inception, with their latest album, ‘Arch Stanton,’ seeing the light of day summer 2014 through Deepdive Records.

Will also performed in Treasure Cat during Karma to Burn’s hiatus from 2002 through 2009, along with Admiral, Alpha Cat, Miser, Transmission, and Year Long Disaster throughout his musical career.
