Foghound / Serpents of Secrecy bassist Rev. Jim Forrester was killed in a shooting outside of the tattoo shop where he worked in Baltimore on Monday, according to Baltimore police. There is no known motive or suspect in the case at this time.
Prior to Foghound and Serpents of Secrecy, Forrester played bass in Sixty Watt Shaman. He was well-known in the Baltimore music scene, with The Obelisk writing “He was someone second to nobody in passion for what he did, and his death is a significant loss.”
