Rest in peace.

I only heard the Demonized album, but I really liked what I heard. Thought that an all-female black metal band was pretty badass.

Well that sucks! Was hoping this band would be a consideration for Maryland Deathfest.

My prayers go out to her family, Nicolas and Antonios, and all who knew her.

My wife was treated for AML (Acute Mylogenous Leukemia) in 2003. After 5 rounds of various chemotherapies and total body radiation treatments, she successfully underwent a bone marrow transplant on July 18th, 2003. We were lucky that her younger sister was a donor match. That is the only way she is still here today. I don't know what me or our kids would have done without her. I can only imagine the pain they are dealing with.

My sincerest wish is for comfort and peace to all those grieving her loss. May her life be celebrated and her memory cherished.
