As you have probably realised, I really enjoy listening to heavy metal music. This has to be one of the strangest occurrences that I have ever seen happen in metal.
Brother Cesare is the lead singer in a heavy metal band which has just released its second album.
A former missionary in the Ivory Coast, he lives in a small friary in the Milan hinterland.
The 62-year-old monk’s love affair with heavy metal began when he attended a Metallica concert some 15 years ago.
“I was overwhelmed and amazed by the sheer energy of it” he says.
I would absolutely love to see this guy in concert, I think it would be very funny. Long hair and robes flying everywhere while a 62 year old is head banging.
