Massacre Records Bemoan The Loss Of Lars “Ratz” Ranzenberger

Yesterday, Lars Ranzenberger (aka Lars Ratz) was killed in a tragic accident with his ultralight airplane on Mallorca, Spain. Lars was just 53 years old.

Everyone at Massacre Records is shocked and mourns the loss of a longtime artist and friend.

Lars and his band METALIUM were one of the senior artists at Massacre Records. The first contract was signed in 1999, and the debut album ‘Millennium Metal – Chapter One‘ immediately entered the German charts.

From 2004 to 2006 Lars released the METALIUM albums own his own, but returned to Massacre Records for the sixth album ‘Nothing To Undo‘. This cooperation continued until today.

Since many years, Lars built up a successful career as a businessman in his domicile of choice Mallorca.

Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to Lars’ wife and family during this difficult time!

Lars will never be forgotten.

R.I.P. brother!
