If there’s one thing that the world needs now, it’s metal music. That seems to have been the thought process of a young caped crusader who took to his front yard to bring his neighbours the gift of music.

In a video recently posted to YouTube, a young musician wearing little more than shorts, a cape, and a hat, is stood in his front yard, armed with a guitar and sign that reads ‘free metal’. We’re not sure how long he’d been at it, but when a passerby with a video camera stopped to listen and record the event, they managed to capture the musical superhero belting out the riffs to Metallica’s ‘Seek & Destroy’.

He may not be the hero we deserve, but he’s the hero we need. We do wonder if he copped any noise complaints from the neighbours from his neighbours, though.
