Get to Know The Marockos, Botswana's Hardcore Metal Heads

Get familiar with Botswana's metal heads, The Marockos.

Yes, black metal heads do exist, and they exist in places as far and wide as Botswana.

The Marockos are the heavy metal group shaking up Botswana's underground scene with their love for all things loud, black and hardcore.

Botswana's metal scene isn't new either, the subculture started back in the 80s following the emergence of classic rock in the 70s.

The Marockos are one of the bands representing the new wave of metal in the country.

OkayAfrica got a chance to meet up with the band in their hometown of Molepolole to learn more about their movement. In a new video, the crew show off some of their toughest looks and dispel myths about metal culture. Check it out below.
