    Unlocking the Truth is made up of three eighth-graders who just love to shred. If shredding is what one does in heavy metal. Because that's what Unlocking the Truth is: A heavy metal band made up of tweens who are now worth more than most people you might know.

    The members of the group have been busking for years and, after being noticed by Eric Clapton's guitarist, the band went on to open for Guns 'N Roses and now play on the Warped tour. And now they've landed a record contract worth over 1 million dollars before they've even had to learn complex geometry or take the SATs.
    The group's manager Alan Sacks, tells the New York Post that part of what's so exciting about the Sony record deal the group just signed is that it's going to give the members (guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, bassist Alec Atkins, and drummer Jarad Dawkins) a chance to redefine heavy metal music. Because the members of Unlocking the Truth are black and heavy metal is dominated by white male voices, it'll be interesting to see how the landscape changes once these teenagers (all 13! Can you believe?) go big!
    The boys also have a book deal with Penguin and a documentary in the works. The only thing they don't have ... Well, is there anything they don't have? These kids, for now, have it all!

    They are very good I saw their videos last year. I was hoping someone would give them a chance. The spirit of Jimi Hendrix is smiling.
