Here's one for you... if those kids are 12, they weren't alive when 46 & 2 was released.  Hell, their parents could have still been in high school at the time.

That album came out 17 years ago. There's an "I feel old" moment for the day.

Depending on when in the year they were born, they may not have been alive when Lateralus was released, either.

I had my neighbor and his kids over last night, they wanted to play Sabbaths "Iron Man", the oldest boy drums and he is 12.  It didn't sound as good as this but it was fun.
 
2013-09-23 07:21:14 PM  
kid really tore it up on those wood sticks
 
2013-09-23 07:22:44 PM  
Wow.
 
2013-09-23 07:26:30 PM  
You know.. I guess Maynard does sound like a 12 year old girl.

God damnit Tool needs to hurry up and put out another album.

that was tremendous - i work about a mile from that studio
 
2013-09-23 08:55:43 PM  
That was great but I like this cover more. Same singer.

That twelve year old singer has the voice of a sixteen year old!

/Seriously, they sounded good.
 
2013-09-23 09:05:30 PM  
That girl has a good voice, but she needs to step away from the mic to breathe in.
 
2013-09-23 09:10:56 PM  
What makes this all the better is not simply the song choice or quality of cover from such young people but the singer has an excellent voice to be another instrument as Maynard does rather than the centerpiece of the song as is often the case in other music. One of my favorite characteristics of Tool. Would be interested to see the direction she takes her talent because she could help make one of the few proper metal bands with a female singer.

I hate you brought that terrible song up..

I do wonder how much post production went into this.. It's just a "tad" too studio(e)

it's a music school prepping these kids for heavily produced music.  it was a good cover for young kids but they are getting some high level production out of it so im a little less impressed than some genuine garage band showing their chops.

And she's got more rock star in her than Miley Cyrus. That girl sounds great and already plays to the camera...

Hey, let's not make any assumptions about the lead singer either.

/Agree that they're all really polished, but that doesn't take away from the performance, IMO. It's not an easy song, and they pulled it off well.

they totally kick ass!  i played in a cheezy cover tune/bar band in the '90's and we attempted this song. I wish we were as good as these kids...

Way to not even give the kids any credit.  "The students for all their hard work."
Now, let's list everyone that worked on producing the video by name...

WTF

Well maybe cause the kids didn't do anything other than get coached on how to play and sing a five chord song while a bunch of other highly trained and paid people recorded, produced, edited, filmed and directed them in a state of the art studio.  Did they even buy their own instruments? Probably can't change strings or tune them by themselves.

You need to check out the training regiment involved in attending an Aaron Okeefe school. Trust me, the kids can change strings and tune a guitar....however they probably can't tuna fish.

That was...ADORABLE.

In a totally bad ass kinda way. Thanks subby, I really enjoyed that.

The hubris of a failed band member.
 
2013-09-23 11:41:50 PM  
That was cute. And cool. A rare mix. Good job, guys.

Any techs out there notice/explain the tom on the front of the bass drum? Never seen that before.

I read something recently where Maynard was getting or had just gotten some demos from the band to start putting some vocals against, so hopefully 2014, bah.
 
2013-09-24 12:15:57 AM  
Bass player and drummer kick ass, singer has a lot of potential, but the rhythm guitar was kind of limp.
 
2013-09-24 12:18:06 AM  
Also that girl singer's voice could totally pass for Lacey Mosley from Flyleaf. They should cover Fully Alive.
 
2013-09-24 12:21:02 AM  
Interesting cover of  You Could Be Mine by Guns n' Roses:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XT8upWEDirM

I kind of like the male/female vocal arrangement.

There are a couple of other Iron Maiden covers, and Pantera too.  Cool school, talented kids.

Here's what I've found to be true about kids and difficulty: If you TELL them something is going to be beyond their abilities, they will believe you.  If you tell them something will be fun to do, they will develop their abilities to the point where they can accomplish it.

Our local HS choral director never says a setting will be tough.  Yet, their mastersingers ensemble tackles pieces that would make any adult professional choir hide in the corner, whimpering in a fetal position.  And they NAIL them.  Going to their concerts is freaking amazing.  Mind.  Blown.  Every person leaving the auditorium is thinking the same thing: "kids did that?"

Ditto for my own teenager.  At twelve, he and his goofball rock band buddies decided they were going to play Sultans of Swing.  I could have said "that's a really difficult song, guys- why not pick something easy like Proud Mary?"  But I kept my mouth shut, and they rocked the heck out of Dire Straits, Knopfler guitar fills and outro-solo and everything.

Tell a kid what the limits of his abilities are, and you'll have a kid with limited abilities.  Tell a kid to amaze you, and he will.
 
2013-09-24 01:17:34 AM  
That was awesome!  Partially because it's an awesome song but the kids were pretty good too.  I usually don't say that about kids doing covers.
 
2013-09-24 03:02:09 AM  
The band sounded great. The singer was pretty good but she's too young - her voice lacks the power that the song needs when the heavy part kicks off.

That drummer's going to be a monster if he keeps playing.

For some reason I was imagining it was Star Wars Kid on the drums.

Agreed.  Granted this was recorded so he had a bunch of takes, but Tool's drummer is highly regarded and this kid is almost there already.  I'd let him play drums in my band.

That girl has a future.  Serious talent there.  In all of those kids, in fact.

A good teacher lets kids discover their only limits, then helps them move beyond them.

Thanks. Google search for subkick shows they start around $400. I've recorded in a dozen good studios without seeing one.

This. 

I think I'm the only one here that thinks the girl's a bit nasally on the high parts. 3:30 she starts to get good. In a few years she'll kick a lot of ass.

2013-09-24 06:16:57 AM  
Sorry but this kicks total and complete ass. They've actually taken a REALLY hard tune to play/sing and made it their own. Sure it's a cover, but they've totally taken it to a different place.

No way I'd let that kid play drums in my band.

Because he'd make us look bad.

They're really easy to make. Old drum plus woofer and some creative mounting: blammo.
