Teenagers Cover Mayhem’s ‘Freezing Moon’ – Best of YouTube
San Francisco isn’t exactly a haven for black metal, but this group of kids don’t let that stop them from paying tribute to their Norwegian idols Mayhem. In 1994, the band released the groundbreaking ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas,’ a black metal record that is still spreading its influence.
Everyone in this kid band is 13 years old, save for the female guitarist whose age is not provided. Most of the band is adorned with corpse paint, and the singer even has a cloak and scythe to complete his black metal image. This cover of ‘Freezing Moon’ is especially impressive on the drumming front, as Mayhem drummer Hellhammer’s percussion is lauded for its speed. Every instrument is played with precision and feeling, which is what makes this cover so convincing.
