Five-Year-Old Singer of Murp Unleashes Extreme Metal Screams With ‘Zombie Skin’
Get ready to meet your new favorite band. Fronted by the most extreme five-year-old frontwoman to ever pick up a mic, the band Murp combines groove and doom metal characteristics with a shrieking vocalist and an image that will make you go, “Awwwwww.”
There are a bunch of tracks from Murp posted on YouTube, but the song that got our attention is ‘Zombie Skin.’ With 5-year-old vocalist Aaralyn screaming her lungs out, along with Murp’s drummer and what sounds like a muddy, down-tuned bass or guitar off-camera, ‘Zombie Skin’ is a punishing track that will make your skin rot!
In all seriousness, the pint-sized screamer is both captivating and impressive in her guttural skills. Even with plastic fairy wings on her back, you can’t help but feel blown away by the level of aggression that the singer is able to conjure. With just one view of the ‘Zombie Skin’ video, you’ll hear shades of Arch Enemy‘s Angela Gossow, along with the franticly piercing screams of Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Kat Katz and Landmine Marathon‘s Grace Perry.
In Murp’s profile on Kingofweb.com, a site where creative people accumulate votes to gain the title of ‘King’ along with a cash prize, Murp write, “The future is not bleak my friends! Rejoice! Rejoice that Murp will be there to carry us through! Murp is two little kids that know more about music than…..two even smaller kids!”
