art from banned humans vol. 3

what it is: art from banned humans vol. 3
where i found it: the outside world

This isn't exactly my favorite kind of metal, but you have to give it to these guys, Acrassicauda, from Iraq, who got this band up and running when Saddam Hussein was still running the show. They got chased out of the country by militants though Syria, then Turkey, and eventually made it to the US as, yes,  refugees.  Here they are, live on Seattle's KEXP:

As a special bonus, check out the look true wonderment on this band member's face when he gets a surprise from James Hetfield."Welcome to America."
