Following the tragic passing of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan, former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy manned the sticks for the band on the 'Nightmare' album and subsequent tour. Known as one of the greatest drummers of all time, Portnoy stayed true to the A7X sound while demonstrating his ability. Here, a 10-year-old has taken on Portnoy's challenging beats!

The kid band Motion Device are one talented group! 10-year-old singer Sara is even dressed just like Ozzy Osbourne with a white fringe-sleeved shirt, a huge cross on a necklace, and those famous round sunglasses. Meanwhile, the bass player's leather get-up may not appeal to Geezer Butler's vegan lifestyle, but she certainly brings the metal!
For every school talent show or concert, it seems like there's always one kid or group of kids out to show everyone else what some real music is all about. It's just a theory we have, sort of like Einstein's Theory of Relativity; it's just a theory, but it hasn't been disproved yet! Take a look at Exhibit A in the video above!
This kid looks pretty young, but he can jam on Lamb of God better than most adults. Even more impressive, he's doing it on an acoustic guitar with absolutely no backing music whatsoever. Every note he plays is our there for viewers to deconstruct, but this little dude hits the mark while performing Lamb of God's 'Walk With Me in Hell.'
Queensryche's biggest hit, like a lot of bands of the era, was a ballad. 'Silent Lucidity' is a gentle, acoustic driven song with orchestration to powerfully back the mood. Hey, even hardened metalheads can be softies at times! Here we have the song being played wonderfully by a young boy.
