From http://metalmind.com.pl


It is with utmost regret that we must inform you that, after his long struggle with a severe sickness, our Managing Director Tomasz Dziubiński passed away on the 16th of December.

He bound his life with rock and metal music already in the early 80s, working as a journalist and, later, as a manager and an energetic organizer of the music scene. In 1989, he founded the company Metal Mind Productions and, in 1990, he started publishing the magazine Metal Hammer a magazine whose editor in chief he remained to this day.

To the very end he remained true to music. He looked forward to the release of the new Rush and Pendragon albums and he still believed in the reunion of Black Sabbath in its original lineup...

His plans regarding the concerts and releases in the forthcoming years shall be carried out by the board and the staff of Metal Mind Productions.

Sad news indeed. Metal Minds have been a major force in keeping the prog flame burning in recent years.

Sad news, I owe a lot of my death metal and thrash metal education to MMP.
