It is with immeasurable sorrow that we must confirm the passing of our Vocalist, Producer, and most importantly, Brother: Tim Aymar. We reached out to Tim during a rather dark period in our time as a band, and his presence breathed new life into everything we were doing, which culminated in the release of Touch the Sun.

Tim was tireless in his efforts to bring the best out of Helios, both as a Vocalist and as a Producer, and we were honored to share in those efforts. While we are immensely saddened by his passing and will miss him dearly, we are glad to have stood alongside Tim and to have helped share his immeasurable talent with the world.

We do not have any further details on what happened at this time, and we ask everyone to respect Tim’s privacy and that of his family. As for the future of Helios, we have not discussed it at this time. We will update you once we’ve had the heart to discuss it.

Thank you all for your tireless support and your condolences. – Jack, Eric, Jeff, and Jon

Tim Aymar’s Educational Background

After graduating from Hampton High School, Tim Aymar attended A.W. Beattie Technical School to further his education. He continued his studies of computer electronics and engineering technology at ITT Technical Institute in 2010.

In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he was born on September 4, 1963. He gained notoriety for his ferocious performances with Chuck Schuldiner’s band Control Denied, but his career as a singer began much before he did.

Since 1985, he has performed with the band 313 as a singer. Later, he joined Triple x and put out an album with them. Soon after, Jim Dofka introduced him to the music of Chuck Schuldiner and Death when he invited him to join the band Psych Scream.

When Schuldiner heard Aymar’s vocals on Psycho Scream, he wanted to work with him and contacted him through their common friend and bandmate Jim Dofka.

Tim Aymar’s Career

He was chosen to be the new lead singer for Schuldiner’s band, Control Denied, following a three-song audition. The first local band to receive national sponsorship from Anheuser-Busch/Budweiser Anheuser-Busch was Aymar’s band Triple-X.

When they won best metal band at the In Pittsburgh Music Awards in 1990, they did so as the first local band to do so. Tim was also named “Vocalist of the Year” by various rock and entertainment magazines in the Pittsburgh region based on reader votes.

Tim put a lot of effort into getting the best vocal and production performance out of Helios, and it was an honor for us to work with him on those projects. His family, friends, and admirers from all across the world will miss him dearly.

Just saw a report from the official DEATH page that Tim Aymar from Control Denied (w/ Chuck Schuldiner) and Pharaoh passed away today. Absolutely bummed. The Fragile Art Of Existence is one of my favorite records of all time and his voice is one of the main reasons why. Ugh. Sucks. #RIPTim

It is with tears in my eyes that I tell you that Tim Aymar has passed away. I have no details yet. I’m just going over all the pictures of our career and friendship that began on a magical day in 1979 when I auditioned for our first band Alladinsane. We went on to form Overlord. After that, we formed 313 with Mark, Doug, and Ned.
