Guitarist Marco "Maus" Biazzi has decided to leave Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL.
Says the band in a statement: "We are, of course, sad to lose such a longtime member of our family. However, Maus needs to follow what is in his heart, and we wish him all the best with whatever the future may bring. And we know that whatever it is that Maus will do in the future, it will be filled with heavy riffs, and a lot of good times."
Adds Maus: "It's never easy to say goodbye to someone, especially after more than 17 wonderful years lived together. Sharing everything about life, on the road, on and off the stage. Growing up as a band and as a musician which played pretty much everywhere on this planet. Seeing positive results and feedbacks coming finally after so hard work together.
"I will never forget all these emotions and I will always keep them with me.
"I felt I couldn't add more in this project any longer so I decided to leave my second family, LACUNA COIL, to take a different path for a new challenge in my life.
"I'm now looking for another musical project to start and to get back on the road as soon as possible to kick ass again around the globe because this is what I want and what I love the most. (Blabbermouth.net)
