12-Year-Old Kid Pounds Skins To Slayer’s ‘Angel of Death’ – Best of YouTube

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Back in the day, kids used to have to hide their “devil music” from their parents. Bands like Slayer were household taboo and if you were caught listening to them or even having one of their records, it could mean you’re seeing nothing but the four walls of your room for the next couple weekends. Now, parents are showing their kids Slayer and the results are astonishing.

Dave Lombardo is heralded as one of metal’s most elite drummers. His style influenced early death metal drumming with the relentless double bass attack and busy cymbal work. This 12-year-old decided to take on ‘Angel of Death’ and does a stellar job. His footwork is locked down and the fills are done about as effectively as anyone can on a kit so small. His skills even attract the family dog, who makes an appearance at the beginning of the song.
