Sons Of Azrael Frontman Dies Suddenly


Man, this is fucked up. Very sad and actually, perhaps a sign this band might be cursed.

Joe Siracuse, the vocalist for the Buffalo, New York-based death metal band Sons of Azrael, has died unexpectedly.

He was just 29-years-old. The circumstances around his death have not be released, nor has the cause.

This is the second time in the last year that tragedy has befallen the band.

Tony Lorenzo, the band’s founding guitarist, was shot by an armed robber almost a year while walking in Buffalo’s Elmwood Village.

The 25-year-old musician is currently paralyzed from the waist down, with a bullet lodged within his spine, according to reports.

Our thoughts are with the band and Joe’s family. This is real fucking shitty news.
