Heavy Metal Monk

Came across this piece of news from somewhere on the net - a Franciscan monk belonging to the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin is the lead singer for his own heavy metal band! The band called Fratello Metallo has even been the opening act at a heavy metal concert. Though I could not understand the lingo in the following YouTube video, drag to 3:20 and you can see his own interpretation of why he shows the "horns" at concerts. :)

Kinda hilarious, but you gotta give it to the bugger. And he has told that his fellow Capuchin friars were supportive of his passion, ''except for a little reprimand'' six years ago following an appearance on a television show - the last time he agreed to do TV.

An Old Monk.
