Meet Hatebeak, the Death Metal Band Fronted by a 21-Year-Old Parrot

What a beautiful, lovely time to be alive. The cacophonous, heavy thrash you hear above is Hatebeak, and yes all of those vocal samples come from a African Gray Parrot named Waldo. Waldo's retainers have a pretty extensive metal pedigree, being members and collaborators in thrash band Pig Destroyer. Just how metal are they?

This gosh-dang metal. Metal fans will recognize all the cheeky references to other bands (Morbid Angel, Judas Priest) within Hatebeak's song and album titles - as if the blatant Iron Maiden reference in the title above weren't a hint already. In other news, I'm starting a band with a wild boar called Deathtusk and our album "Ham or Fall" will come out next winter. Get ready!
