In the Beginning

God said, let there be light, and there was light. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Metal.

And then God said, sleep with one eye open, gripping your pillow tight. Exit light, enter night. Take my hand, off to Never Never Land.

Cut now to Milan, Italy, where there is a sixty-two year old monk that sings for a metal band called Fratello Metallo or Brother Metal. His name is Brother Cesare Bonizzi and he is of the Capuchin Order. Bonizzi is a cross between Anthony Hopkins with a ZZ Top beard, Methuselah, Cannibal Corpse, and Obi-Won Kenobi.

Brother Metal has just released their second album called Misteri (Mysteries), inspired by a group of southern Italian women who sang about Jesus’ mother Mary. Bonizzi also sings about alcohol warming the heart, but damaging the liver if drunk in excess. He also sings about how important sex is to man.

Sex, booze, and Brother Obi-Won Methuse-Corpse. It was only a matter of time before it happened.

Fratello Metallo has played shows with Iron Maiden and are doing well. Fifteen years ago, Bonizzi went to a Metallica concert and was completely taken by the energy of the sound. He formed the band and now dedicates his life to it. He says, ďI donít play to draw people close to Christ, to the church, or to religion. I do it to convert people to life.Ē
