This Bass Player Is So Metal He Blew Up His Own Testicle

Metal is a pretty intense genre of music known for a lot of extremes, not just in sound, but in lifestyle.  80s metal bands had that hair on purpose.  There are about a million bands that have committed themselves to wearing make up and elaborate costumes on stage each and every time they perform.  Ozzy Osbourne once chewed on a bat.  It takes a lot of stick-to-itiveness. And now comes Otto Schimmelpenninck.

Though his name may be the most un-metal thing since accounting, Otto is the bass player for a band called Delain, who seem to be the Dutch response to Evanescence.   This is the actual video in which it happens;

 Didn’t see it, did you?  Apparently that confetti cannon blast at the end packed way more of a punch than anyone guessed and by the next day, Otto had taken to Facebook to let fans known his sack had grown to the size of a grapefruit.  He went to the hospital where doctors removed half a liter of nut blood and then stitched up what turned out to be a ruptured testicle. 

Back to the video, you’ll notice the reason you didn’t notice anything is because the guy has literally no reaction to a confetti cannon exploding his scrotum.  He finished the entire show.  Now this song may be as metal as a bowl of limp noodles (or biscuits, for that matter) but that is one hell of a metal reaction to a traumatic injury. 

Just for comparison, someone once threw a water bottle at Justin Bieber in Brazil;

He glares like a tiny tyrant who was told he can’t have any more pudding before dinner and then leaves the stage.  Apparently fans waited around another half hour expecting him to come back out since the show wasn’t over, but he never did.  Meanwhile, this man blew up his scrotum and kept playing.

So, to confirm, Justin Bieber is not metal.  Not metal at all.  But Otto Schimmelpennick is the most metal man alive.  Rock on.
