Above all, it is about the fragility of young people at or sudden fame and their handling of it. The debut album „Chaos“ the guys appear on the way 22. July…
There is news of the Metal Kids „Unlocking The Truth„, with three years ago 12 as metal band started on the streets of Brooklyn and started from there a world career. The debut album will be released in June, plus there is a first music video for the track „Monster“. There will also be a documentary about the band, which „Breaking a Monster“ calls, Trailer see below. Somehow creeps me an uneasy feeling with Sellout-Doku etc. usf, but after Metallica-Opening and an appearance on Colbert, it is too late anyway allow such accusations and rips the track, despite audible voice breaks…
BREAKING A MONSTER begins as the three members of band UNLOCKING THE TRUTH are all in 7th grade, spending their weekends playing a blend of heavy metal and speed punk in Times Square – often drawing substantial crowds. They take on a manager: a 70- year-old industry veteran. With his guidance they are soon on their way to a 1.8 million dollar record deal and a precarious initiation into the music industry.
Anything feels possible, and in some moments the band can almost feel the eyes of the world gazing upon them. The boys are coming of age, not only as they make the leap to being professional musicians, but also as they transcend childhood and take their first steps into the complexities of adulthood. The accelerated breakout of any band, let alone one of pre-teens, is an extremely narrow and specific period in time – BREAKING A MONSTER is the story of this rapid transformation.
About Alec, 13, Jarad, 12, und Malcolm, 13, we reported in the tomb almost a year ago. You go in the seventh grade of a New York school and go at their leisure skateboard and play in a band. Doch während die meisten ihrer Klassenkameraden Popsternchen wie Lady Gaga and Rihanna anhimmeln, mögen es die drei Jungs musikalisch düster und hören am liebsten Metal. With her band „Unlocking The Truth“ they are probably the hardest seventh grade combo of the USA. Der Durchbruch gelang den Jungs während der Amateur Night im Apollo Theater, where it is still as „Tears of Blood“ („Tears of blood“) occurred. It was followed by appearances in Times Square, in Queens and an evening show at Hank's Saloon in Brooklyn – although there is actually no minors are allowed to stay. Since then, it goes steeply uphill for the trio: As the youngest band ever played Alec, Jarad and Malcolm this year on the legendary Coachella Festival, were also the opening act for Guns N‘ Roses in Las Vegas and will soon fulfill a big dream: At the 9. August, they occur on the Heavy Montreal Festival, wenige Stunden vor ihrem Vorbild Metallica.
Now the culmination: Alan Sacks, A Manager von „Unlocking The Truth“, said the „New York Post“, that the band a record deal with Sony in the amount of 1,8 Million dollars has completed five albums. For the debut album, the more than 250’000 Must be time to sell, would the band 60’000 Get buck, the second album were already 325’000 Dollar temporary. The band had enough material for three albums, writes the U.S. magazine „Billboard„. Later this month, the teens want to go into the studio and record their first EP.
Diese metalband aus Brooklyn, wo sich ausser Hip Hop kaum noch etwas anderes in der Muttermilch befindet und Biohazard zum ganz alten Eisen gehört, noticed a few weeks ago for the first time with a couple of videos of street music gigs, on which they have taken completely apart just times Times Square. The guys from „Unlocking The Truth“ go to the sixth grade and are 12 Years old! And the louts have something of it, the style, which they use, is unusual and, according to her testimony rap is boring! I hope, they remain true to themselves and not be sold off by any producer as an Internet phenomenon and deal ironed. Awesome as the Small impregnates his guitar, reminiscent of Hendrix. Above you see a portrait of the band of the AvantGarde Diaries, which arose before the accession of new bassist Alec Atkins, with Noisy's an interview with „Unlocking The Truth“ below and you can a TV appearance on Fox‘ FX‘ Totally Biased bewundern. The party has just started for the guys only. The only question I ask myself: Is that „Real Black Metal“?
Unlocking the Truth, a metal band composed of twelve year old Malcolm Brickhouse and eleven year old Jarad Dawkins, is playfully arguing about which member can play a faster and more forceful rendition of their self-composed instrumental blast “Physical Therapy.” While Jarad is technically the drummer (he mastered the instrument by the age of two), he is convincingly demonstrating his guitar chops. Being the precoucious, and yet consummate, professionals that they are, the band wants to make sure that in a worst case scenario – say, a member fainting onstage – each could play the other’s instrument flawlessly.
It is not atypical for Unlocking the Truth to practice for up to ten hours on weekends. They are so immersed in their music that they barely notice anything going on around them, including their parents, who usually have to force them to stop practicing when it’s bedtime. While their classmates mostly listen to radio pop or rap, Malcolm and Jarad’s enthusiasm for metal was nurtured while watching generous amounts of WWE professional wrestling.
