Triskaidekaphobia. Such is the term that signifies fear of the
number thirteen. Even without suffering the full effects of such a
challenging word, most people with even the slightest inclination to
the superstitious side of things will recognize thirteen as somehow
unlucky -- even if they cannot quite explain why. Maybe it has
something to do with becoming a teenager. Regardless, in Italy it
seems to be considered a lucky number; which is only appropriate,
this being our publication's thirteenth anniversary.
These days life may have limited us to just an anniversary editorial,
but the writers at CoC continue to strive to deliver the best
possible articles every month, turning our age into an asset instead
of allowing it to become heavy on our shoulders. This brief editorial
aims to highlight just that: the dedication of those who continue to
persevere in order to keep CoC relevant and worthy of your time. This
publication has witnessed a great deal of changes in extreme music --
both artistically and from a business perspective -- and we hope to
continue to deliver a meaningful contribution to that universe.
Thank you all, and see you next year.
