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!

I like to think of this as another chapter in the back and forth story of which country has the worse trashy television. Ball is in your court, United Kingdom. Make something worse!

This guy is still at large in Detroit, so if you happen to see that suspicious bearded not-lady, call the authorities!
