Son of Legendary James Hetfield Is Coming To Give El Paso A Show
We all know who James Hetfield is, even if you're not a fan of Metallica.
James's legendary career has spanned over 40 decades, but if you ask him what the most rewarding part of his career was, I think most likely it would be becoming a father.
His son, Castor Virgil Hetfield, is 22 years old & he's been following in the footsteps of his dad by playing drums for the hard rock band Bastardane based out of Savannah, Georgia. Together with Jake Dallas (bass/vocals) & Ethan Sirotzki (guitar), they put out their album "Is This Rage?", that has a sludge metal/stoner rock sound to it, back in March. They announced a mini U.S. tour back in May & just like how James rocked El Paso with Metallica, his son Castor will do the same in 2022.
You have a chance to see Bastardane perform live in El Paso this week. Bastardane will be performing at The Lowbrow Palace, June 16th, at the downtown location, 1006 Texas Avenue at 8pm.
If you're unfamiliar with the hard rock trio, here's a sample of some of their music. Even though they are NOT riding the coattails of Metallica's sound (and they were quite adamant about that), you can hear the influence that Castor's dad had on him when hearing his drumming.
