Kolokouris's Ehemann Nick Maiis hat folgendes Statement veröffentlicht:
"You are leaving a lot behind and my soul is in pain. You are a special person, you are my wife. I will always adore you, our son and everybody that they love you. I will always honor you and you will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, my love, I will kiss you from inside of my soul."
DIMMU BORGIR Fronter Shagrath (a.k.a. Stian Thoresen), der einen Gastbeitrag beim ASTARTE Song „The Ring (Of Sorrow)" ablieferte, sagte folgendes:
"Sad news. My friend Maria Tristessa from ASTARTE has passed to the next world. Best wishes on your soulside journey. It was an honour to work with you."
