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!

When the band isn't forcing all of us into rudimentary data analysis, they're busy touring Australia and subjecting good normal folk to Neo-Dad-Rock anthems. Thankfully, the Queensland Police department has had it up to here with the band and has warned the public of their arrival.

Personally I just hope we get some convenient spider rain during their show. Is that so much to ask?

And this isn't even the first time the Queensland Police have shown their distaste for the band:

Song of the Day: Comedian Turns His Fart Into Beautiful Music

At first this just stinks, and then it’s music to your ears.

A comedy duo from Australia called the Shonky Brothers have turned some flatulence into a “7-tone fart symphony.”

One of the brothers named Loz, recently farted, and the two realized there was something very special about it.

When the audio is slowed down, as demonstrated in the video above, it becomes recognizable as a major seventh arpeggio in the key of B flat.

It’s “the greatest fart I ever did,” Loz writes in the video.

You can listen to the final product below, which he calls his “Magnum Anus,” and even make it your ringtone!
