Save us Jesus, rip out a tune.

Catholic Satire: A heavy metal band decided to convert metal junkies into Jesus freaks with well inspiring music.

Many bands like to dress up in dark themed evil outfits. But Fratello Metallo went further — their vocalist was an actual monk who gained concerts for the church. He was the real deal.

How did a religious monk end up heading a metal act?

Father Cesare Bonizzi, also known as Frate (frier) Cesare, is an Italian Capuchin friar, who was known as a heavy metal singer. Fratello Metallo ("Brother Metal") is the name that Frate Cesare gave to his Heavy Metal band.

Unlike what you might expect, Father Cesare thought heavy metal was the most energetic form of music he’d ever heard. So, in 2008, Fratello Metallo released Misteri.

A list of other songs, 'The devil made me do it,' 'Angel of my centerfold,' 'Jesus Christ superstar,' 'Mary was a babe,' 'She bit an apple and had a baby.'

Unfortunately, the band is no longer active. Father Cesare felt that with their increasing fame, the devil had possessed the band members and their managers, and he decided to retreat back to the convent to perform an exorcism on himself just in case.

He looked at himself in the mirror and splashing holy water at the mirror while yelling, "I adjure you, ancient serpent to depart from this servant of God. For it is the power of Christ that compels you."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
