All parents know that adorable as they are, a child with a lot of energy and a new, noisy toy, can be every bit as earsplitting and punishing as the fiercest metal anthems.
First In Flight have taken this knowledge and applied it in an inspired way, going viral on TikTok in the process. The emerging 'dance rock' band has uploaded a series of covers that features them playing iconic metal hits by the likes of Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Rage Against The Machine and Pantera on children's instruments.
Using a selection of children's instruments, both conventional and unconventional, including a simple hand-held-xylophone, a pink guitar, tiny drum-pads and an animal keyboard, they're dishing up crushing renditions that have them going viral on TikTok. Watch their versions of Limp Bizkit's Break Stuff and Rage Against The Machine's Killing In The Name below, but maybe do so at a safe distance from the nearest toddler, so as to preserve your ears.
