What if I told you a metal band leveled Times Square in New York City? Awesome, right? Now… what if I told you that metal band was in sixth grade? If you didn’t read the headline, I bet you didn’t see that one coming.

While browsing through Vice today, I came across this unlikely New York trio. Malcolm Brickhouse, Jarad Dawkins and Alec Atkins make up the upcoming metal band known as Unlocking The Truth. They might just unlock your interest too. Mixing up elements of Metalcore and Deathcore, these kids know how to get down. These are the most brutal 11-year-olds you will come across. Some faith in America’s youth has been restored.

Check the footage down below. And if you want to know more about Unlocking The Truth, check the coverage / interview Vice conducted with them right here.
