'METALLICA Couple' Announce Birth Of Son ORION

The couple that became an Internet sensation after a video surfaced of them performing a cover version of METALLICA's "Master Of Puppets" at their wedding reception, have announced the birth of their new baby boy, Dax Orion Diaz.

A maternity video featuring Annette Ortiz-Diaz (a former drummer for FATAL POSPOROS and HALF PAST-TWO and the current bass player for RANDOM NINJAS) and her husband Dennis — who had a METALLICA tribute band (made up of Asians) called TRAPPED UNDER RICE — playing the METALLICA classic "Orion" can be seen below.

Annette and Dennis got a chance to play with the members of METALLICA themselves on December 10, 2011 at the fourth and final intimate show at the Fillmore in San Francisco as part of the week-long celebration of the band's 30th anniversary for fan club members only. They joined METALLICA on stage to perform the song "Blackened" during the portion of the concert where fan-club winners were invited on stage to jam with the band.

Annette Ortiz and Dennis Diaz were married on April 10, 2010 in El Segundo, California. Photos of the reception can be found at this location.
