Those absurdly talented O'Keefe Foundation kids dropped a fiery cover of Slipknot's "The Devil In I" just last month, but they're already back with another impressive take on a metal classic, this time Pantera's "I'm Broken."
Performed exclusively by teens between the ages of 14 and 16, the rendition's flawless execution and impassioned delivery bodes well for heavy music's next generation. One of the most impressive contributions comes from 14-year-old drummer Nate Tharp, who nailed his contribution to the cover in one take at the studio. Somewhere in heavy-metal heaven, Vinnie Paul just did a stick twirl for this young dude.
The young talent wasn't confined to only the musicians, though, as O'Keefe regular Eli Dykstra was on hand to help out as cameraperson for the beautifully shot production. Multiple artistic angles and great studio lighting make it hard to believe these aren't seasoned pros at the helm, but also inspire faith that the kids are alright after all.
Acting as director, audio engineer and video editor was Aaron O'Keefe himself, who started the foundation to "provide children with the opportunity to professionally record their music for free."
