Career[edit]

Pucci founded Necrophagia in 1983, which first dissolved in 1990. Shortly after Necrophagia's dissolution, he formed his solo band, and released Compelled By Fear in 1990.[1] Pucci reformed Necrophagia in 1997 with Phil Anselmo, and still performs with the band. Pucci is the only original member in the group's current line-up.

He was the vocalist for the death metal/thrash metal Band Cabal in 1990. Pucci has participated in several side projects with Phil Anselmo, including Viking Crown[2] and Eibon.[3] He was the vocalist for the death metal band The Ravenous, which included Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker[4] and original Death drummer Chris Reifert. Bucci also sang for the black metal band Wurdulak,[5] Forlis[6] and Enoch.[7] He appears in the film August Underground's Mordum, released on video in 2003.[8]
