Heavy metal music has often been qualified as somewhat scary and grim, and many people consider its fans too gloomy. Now there seems to be some proof. A 13-year-old boy from Norway, who was attacked by wolves, managed to chase the beasts away by playing heavy metal on his mobile phone.
The attack happened in the central part of Norway. The boy was going home after school when four wolves appeared in his way. However, the wild animals were scared of the music playing on the boy’s cell phone and they ran away. The life-saving song that helped the boy avoid the attack was by the thrash metal band Megadeth.
Later the boy explained he knew that in case of a wolf attack, you shouldn’t run but should face down the animals. The metal music seems to have been considered as an attack by the wolves and really scared them.
