Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Sons of Azrael’s Joe Siracuse
New York death metal band Sons of Azrael's vocalist Joe Siracuse (pictured far right, above) has passed away at the young age of 29. Details regarding the cause of Siracuse's death have not been made public.
Sons of Azrael posted the simple message, 'Joseph R. Siracuse 1983-2012,' on their Facebook page on the night of Oct. 9.
Sadly, this is the second tragedy Sons of Azrael have experienced in less than a year. Guitarist Tony Lorenzo was shot in the back during an armed robbery on Oct. 26, 2011, which paralyzed the musician from the waist down.
