We’re told as kids to ‘dream big’ and we believe it. We all wanted to be astronauts, skateboarders, spies, movie stars, and rockstars, but how many 6th graders have 720k views on a Vimeo video? These two metal heads from Flatbush, New York are real dream chasers. Their in a band named Unlocking The Truth, and from what I heard, they blend the sounds of Death Metal, Stoner Metal, and Progressive Metal all into one cohesive sound.
What I loved from watching this video is that they aren’t innocent, sheltered children. They seem to have a mature view of what the real world is like. They take the negative energy of stereotypes and transform it into a positive, and uplifting message that says, “Metal rocks, Bullies suck”. How can you not like that? It’s so clear cut and true that even an overdue man could enjoy.
From their videos on YouTube, I’m guessing posted from the Mom’s account (Tracy Brickhouse), I’ve noticed how far they’ve already come. Playing in Times Square and having a large audience only shows the capabilities of reaching for your dreams. I cannot get enough of the video of Master Chief rocking out and headbanging to one of the bands songs. They’re killer. I’ll include it below to share the greatness of it.
These kids are real ass kickers, and it’s hard to think that they’re only 12 as well. Just another reason why age doesn’t mean talent. It’s the ambition and drive in a person as well.
