Metal band Bastardane which features the son of Metallica frontman James Hetfield, Castor on drums, has released their debut album “Is This Rage?”

Bastardane is completed by bassist/frontman Jake Dallas and guitarist Ethan Sirotzki. The trio formed in 2019 and are based out of Savannah, Georgia. They have previously released three singles “Wealthy Fantasy,” “Let The Wasted Die,” and “Above All.”

In a recent interview with The Hum, the band stated:

“We are BASTARDANE and we are not some average chump white male band looking to get laid. There is a time in every generation when music is the guiding light out of hard times. We just want to make emotionally empowering music that isn’t trying to cater to a certain audience. Our career is about making people happy and fulfilling the emotional needs of those who can’t tolerate words alone.”

However, Castor isn’t the only Metallica offspring to follow his father’s footsteps. Drummer Lars Ulrich’s sons Myles and Layne have formed the two-piece group Taipei Houston, while bassist Robert Trujillo’s son Tye plays bass for the band OTTTO.

Last December, Bastardane, Taipei Houston, and OTTTO performed as part of Metallica’s 40th anniversary celebration in San Francisco. In May, Bastardane will once again share the stage with Metallica as the opening act at the BottleRock Festival in Napa, followed by a June 7th show at The Venice West in Venice, CA.
