MILAN – The Italian heavy metal band “Fratello Metallo” has a real shocker – their singer is a monk!
Brother Cesare Bonizzi is a Capuchin monk who belongs to the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. Having always held an interest in using music as a means of spiritual devotion, Brother Cesare soon became passionate about heavy metal after seeing Metallica in concert.
He is now the lead singer of Fratello Metallo (“Brother Metal”) and even opened at the 2008 Gods of Metal show, Italy’s biggest heavy metal festival!
