Heavy Metal is one seriously hardcore genre of rock, and metalhead musicians who grew up listening to bands like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Judas Priest wanted to take heavy metal in an even heavier direction, so subgenres like Thrash, Death and Black Metal were born.
It's safe to say that metalheads, both musicians and bands, are a pretty serious bunch, which makes it all that much more hilarious when you discover comedic moments like these set to a heavy metal beat.
