One year ago, when we heard the sad news that Mario Comesanas had passed away at the young age of 30 from a brain hemorrhage that was caused by a rare form of leukemia, we were completely shocked and saddened. Mario, we miss you brother!
Throughout his career in music, Mario left his mark as been a genuine, passionate, and charismatic guy. Ever since he started doing radio at WSOU 89.5 FM with a show called "Hardcore Reality", it was evident that Mario was a huge supporter of Heavy Music and that he wanted to devote his career to all things heavy.
Soon after he graduated from Seton Hall University, he joined Sirius Satellite Radio (now Sirius XM) and started working with Jose Mangin as a DJ in Hard Attack (now Liquid Metal). During his tenure there, he also started working with Revolver Magazine at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, were he hosted artist meet and greets and did tons of marketing work for the magazine. Before his passing, Mario had joined the independent label distributor RED Distribution.
Mario was also the singer of December Aeternalis, and most recently, Low Road. Ironically, we had plans to book Low Road for the first Horns Up Rocks show in New Jersey. This never happened.
Please put your Horns Up for Mario Comesanas, our Metal and Hardcore brother!
"NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT I DON'T COUNT THE BLESSINGS AT MY DOOR!!!!!!"-Mario Comesanas (Low Road)
Mario's last interview was with New York Hard Core legends Agnostic Front, a day before the 2011 Black N Blue Bowl! This song is dedicated to Mario, keep rocking in Peace brother!
Mario, in behalf of the entire Heavy Music community: Thank you so much for everything you did for all of us! You are not forgotten and we all love you!
