Daylight Misery released single “Cancerworm” in memory of Dimitris Theodoropoulos

The Athenian metal band Daylight Misery, inspired by the loss of their dear friend Dimitris Theodoropoulos (member of the progressive metal band Rex Mundi from Thessaloniki) on the 31st of May 2021 from cancer, decided to write a song called “Cancerworm” which is based on his story and everything he has been through over the last years of his life. The purpose of this song is to raise money which will be offered in his memory to children who suffer from neoplastic diseases.

You may find all the information regarding the donation, in the description of the song on YouTube. Many known artists from the heavy metal scene participated in “Cancerworm”. Specifically, guest vocals were done by Aaron Stainthorpe from the British band the legendary My Dying Bride  as well as Sakis Tolis, founder, guitarist, and leader of the biggest metal band in Greece, Rotting Christ. Furthermore, the guitar solo of the song was played by the Greek guitar player Gus G. who has a brilliant career with his main band Firewind and with his solo work as well. It should be noted that during the period of 2009-2017, he was the guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne and launched with him the full-length album “Scream”. Vocals were done by Vassilis Mazaris, bass player by Aggelos Malisovas while Nicos B. played the guitar. The lyrics were written by Vassilis Mazaris and the music was created by Nicos B.
