Stop Everything and Watch These Teen Girls Play Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' (VIDEO)
The oldest band member is 14; the youngest is 9
Metallica covers are a dime a dozen. Especially “Enter Sandman,” a song which everyone is required to attempt within six months of picking up a guitar for the first time.
But not like this.
The Warning are three upsettingly adorable sisters from Monterrey, Mexico. Alejandra, the youngest, plays bass; Paulina, the “middle one” (no age listed), is the drummer and sings harmonies; and Daniela (“Dany”) is the lead singer and guitar player.
Simply put, these three rip. Or shred. Or slay. Or whatever weirdly violent verb you could use to describe the act of playing music very competently for their age. (Also Dani’s heavy-metal face is amazing.)
The three have aspirations of attending a summer program at Berklee College of Music in 2016, and they recently set up a GoFundMe to help meet the costs of attendance. (It succeeded, obviously; if it hadn’t, one suspects Dani would have simply played a guitar solo in the direction of the entire Internet until the necessary funds had been raised.)
The group’s music extends beyond covers: A six-song EP of original material is available on iTunes. We’re sure they’ll be sharing a stage with Metallica before long.
