Metallica Obsessed Couple Announce Birth of Baby Orion
Metallica fans Dennis Ortiz and his wife Annette Ortiz-Diaz created quite an Internet buzz when they got hitched in 2010. After making their entrance as a married couple, the two joined the wedding band to jam Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ at their own wedding reception and the video, seen below, went viral.
Both Dennis and Annette are seasoned musicians both with many bands under their belt. According to Blabbermouth.net, Dennis even had a Metallica tribute band called Trapped Under Rice, showing his allegiance to the band.
When Metallica played their week of intimate fan club shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Calif., last year, Dennis and Annette even had the opportunity to join the band that inspired them so much. During the Dec. 10, 2011, show, drummer Lars Ulrich played their video and invited them up onstage. Annette took over the drum kit while Ulrich recorded the video for the excited couple and then joined in on a second kit. The two were performed ‘Blackened’ from '…And Justice for All' live with the band.
Now, the metal inspired Mr. and Mrs. are back with a very special new video, announcing the birth of their son, aptly named Dax Orion Diaz. The birth announcement starts off with video clips of Annette behind the drum kit with her baby bump, playing the classic Metallica tune ‘Orion.’ It ends on a happy note, with “The birth of a Metal God” showing baby Dax Orion Diaz in the hospital shortly after his arrival.
Congrats to the faithful Metallica fans on the new addition to the family; check out the videos below.
