10-year-old viral drumming sensation Nandi Bushell spent 2020 capturing the hearts of millions around the world with her infectious energy behind the kit, even capturing the attention of Dave Grohl who challenged her to a drum off earlier in the year.
But after conquering the world of rock, Nandi is busting out the double kick pedals and charging into the realm of metal with a cover of Slipknot's 'Unsainted', professing her love for the heavier style of music in a Tweet that said:
"Yes! I am a total metal head! I love how awesome the drumming is in @slipknot! This is my first attempt at double pedals! Taking my playing to the next level. This song is called I #unstainted by #slipknot! Incredible drumming @jayweinbergdrum! This song! @CoreyTaylorRock"
The partial performance got the seal of approval from Slipknot's drummer Jay Weinberg himself, who said in a Tweet:
"Nandi!! You’re unreal! I’m blown away by your passion and energy. Keep shredding on those drums! Next time we roll through your town, give me a shout — you gotta show me how you do that stick flip right there"

You gotta love a good drum cover, and Slipknot have been the target of many, including this jaw-dropping one-armed performance of 'Duality' and Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande's flawless destruction of 'People = Shit'!
