A couple who performed Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" with the wedding band at their own 2010 wedding reception have taken their obsession with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame metal legends one step further. According to Loudwire, Dennis Ortiz and Annette Ortiz-Diaz have announced the birth of their son, Dax Orion Diaz. "Orion" is the name of the classic instrumental track from the 1986 Master Of Puppets album that was the last great recorded showcase for late bassist Cliff Burton, who died that year.
The couple have made a Metallica-flavored video announcing Dax's birth. Their wedding video became a viral sensation after it was posted online.
Both Dennis and Annette are professional musicians who have played in a number of bands, with Dennis even spending time in a Metallica tribute act called Trapped Under Rice.
The couple got a chance to go onstage at Metallica's 30th anniversary shows in San Francisco last December, where drummer Lars Ulrich played their wedding video before they got to perform "Blackened" with the band.
Metallica is working on its next album, which will be released sometime in 2014 through the band's newly launched Blackened Recordings.
