    R.I.P. Frank 'Killjoy' Pucci

    Necrophagia's FB page posted this earlier today:

    "We are so shocked and saddened to bring you the news of our dear brother Killjoy passing away this morning. We are at a loss for words. R.I.P brother you are forever in our hearts. We will cherish our moments together forever. Frank (Killjoy) Pucci 1969-2018
    Serge, Shawn, Jake"

    Not sure what happened, but it's sad, he wasn't much older than me.

    When Horamce and I interviewed Venom Inc. on their tour bus in 2016 (here), Killjoy was sitting (of camera) a few feet away eating pizza and cracking up at some of their answers to his questions. He was a really friendly guy and while I won't pretend to be the world's biggest Necrophagia fan I did appreciate their insane live show and their crazy videos. He was clearly a huge horror fan as well as a big metal head.

    I met him at Chiller years ago too - he came across as a really nice guy.

    EDIT - seems like it was a heart attack.

    I remember buying the debut LP & writing him. Seems like I received a reply years later. I know I bought "I Drink Your Blood" signed dvd from him; it was the very last copy.

    Their later material was better than that debut LP & The Ravenous. I sold a couple of the NP cd's ("Holocausto de la Mort" was definitely their best along with that first vhs release) but I think I still have The Ravenous LP.

    RIP. I'm not a big fan of Death Metal (it all depends because my music tastes are fickle) but I listen to Holocausto De la Mort at least once a month. Easily the best Necrophagia album.

    Necrophagia "Ready for Death"; I've never heard this before..

    Seems it was recorded before their debut but shelved.

    Killjoys vocals on "Black blood Vomitorium" is what I like! Not growling or heavy efx, just raw:

    Holocausto de la Morte got quite a bit of spins back in the day. Brilliant taste the man had.
