10:32 - ScreamingSteelUS I miss Metal Inquisition sometimes. Mostly for that video of Mick Harris making stupid trumpet noises.
10:31 - ScreamingSteelUS I signed up for MA the same day as MS. That lasted a few weeks; I just got sick of the place. I've never been a registered user on another site, but I've hung around Spirit of Metal and a few similar sites.
10:12 - MetalDoomMaster MS is the only community site I've ever subbed to. I don't even have a facebook. I love this place.
10:08 - Overrwatcher Before MS I was on a forum filled with teenagers around my age where I eventually got trolled out by neo-nazi black metal fans because I liked melodic death metal. I'm not even kidding, I found it hilarious even back then.
Lacuna Coil's vocalist Cristina Scabbia announced today that former bandmate and guitarist Claudio Leo, who played with the band from 1995-1998 (including a performance on the band's demo under the moniker Ethereal and the 1998 self-titled EP) has passed away. The cause of death was not disclosed and no other information was offered so far.
The following announcement was issued on Scabbia's official Facebook page: "It's with deep sadness that I inform you all know that our dear friend and ex guitar player Claudio Leo left us. My deepest condolences to his family, close friends and the band Cayne. You will always be remembered for your strenght and positivity. We love you, Claudio."
Claudio Leo was also the founding member of the gothic rock act Cayne in 1999, who also released this message: "Goodbye Claudio. Rest in peace, brother."
