Religion is typically one of the last things to come to mind in conjunction with heavy metal, but an Italian monk is looking to change that. 62-year-old Brother Cesare Bonizzi discovered heavy metal at a Metallica concert more than a decade ago, and he’s been performing as the lead singer in his own band ever since.

Brother Cesare is very clear in stating that he doesn’t hope to convert others to Catholicism through his music.  Instead, he hopes to convert them to life, and living it to the fullest.
