I’m still trying to get my head fully back into metal, but this isn’t exactly the re-introduction I was anticipating. My friend Ian sent me a link to this video. The performance is by a band called Children Medieval Band, whose members are Stefan (10) – vocal, guitar, violin; Olga (8) – keyboard; and Cornelia (5) – drum, harp. They were trained using EarPower software. They have put their 21st Century training to use by covering . . . Rammstein.

The uploader of the video explains: “Rammstein has some amazing compositions, likeable to younger kids.” I’ve thought the same thing! Just wait ’til these kiddies run Rammstein’s “Pussy” through that EarPower software. They’ll be humming the refrain for days and days.

But maybe their parents should wait until the kids are older before exposing them to the wonders of the uncensored “Pussy” video. Y’know, until Cornelia gets to be 9 or 10 years old.

In case the video of the kids getting medieval with Rammstein’s “Sonne” has whetted your appetite for the original, it’s after the jump.

  1. Alright, so those kids were barely listenable, but I have no problem with their choice in music, and kudos to them for trying (and doing a half decent job of it given their limited resources).

    And how fucking great is Rammstein’s ‘Sonne’ video? Seriously, these guys never fail to entertain with their videos, but this is one of my favorites. I love their take on Snow White as a gold dust abusing, vaguely sadistic mother figure. Fucking great.

    • Yep . . . my kind of fairy tale. “Sonne” is definitely one of my favorite Rammstein vidz, too.

      • And because of watching this video, I ended up on a major nostalgia trip and watched a shitload of Rammstein videos on Youtube. And now, I’m listening to Rammstein’s discography in reverse chronological order.

  2. I’m comfortable saying Rammstein is my guilty pleasure, but that, that might just be worse than Babymetal.

    I kept expecting the little girl on the drums to start bleeding from her eyes and then jump the guitarist and start trying to eat his brains.

    • There’s definitely a career for you in directing music videos. It’s that kind of inspired thinking that the Children Medieval Band need to take themselves to the next level.

  3. I don’t even know what to say.

  4. They did a great job, as far as I’m concerned. I wouldn’t pay for it, but Jesus on a stick, that’s better than I could do with a year of training. (I’m guessing.) I think they’re off to a great start!

  5. I was watching this just the other day! Those kids can really pull it off. Thing that surprises me is that little girl on drums – seriously, most kids her age can’t keep an attention span the length of a song, let alone play a rhythm throughout it!

    And here’s hoping they’re not doing a cover of ‘Pussy’ anytime soon…
