Mina Caputo, formerly known as Keith Caputo, has had a an extensive career within the music industry. While you all know him from his work with legendary New York Metallers LIFE OF AGONY, Caputo is constantly pushing the limits of his successful life as an artist. As we all know, LIFE OF AGONY is not an active band at the moment, and the chances of the band returning to the musical spectrum are very unlikely. But this does not mean that Caputo is done creating awesome music.
Today, Mina Caputo is presenting the world his brand NEW video for his song "Silver Candy". The clip was directed and produced by Dan Quigley, also known as Dan Beast. You can watch the video below.
This simple, "sober" take on such a gorgeous song from Caputo's 2008 record, "A Fondness for Hometown Scars", was filmed in glorious 1080p HD quality in less than a day.
As most of you know, last year, Caputo announced that he was a trans-gender person. After hearing this shocking news, the Heavy Music world immediately went awol and a few close minded LIFE OF AGONY fans and some members of the media, bashed Caputo's decision to "come out'. At that time we immediately asked the public to respect Caputo's decision, since we truly believe that he sent a very strong message to a genre of music that carries way too many stereotypes.
Recently, we were able to chat with Caputo about the importance of human equality, and of course about the impact of LIFE OF AGONY in Caputo's life. This interview is NOT to be missed, so check it out and spread the word!
