Meet Unlocking The Truth, the group of NYC sixth graders who play insanely good metalcore in Times Square

While Minnesota’s Y.N. Rich Kids are producing poppy rap singles for the middle school set, there’s always been a gap in quality instrumental metal produced by and for tweens. Fortunately, New York’s Unlocking The Truth has arrived to change that. The band of three sixth graders plays frequently in Times Square, absolutely decimating the surrounding streets with their deathcore-influenced tunes. There’s not a ton known about the group, other than that they’re pals, from Brooklyn, and make pretty amazing loud music, but fortunately Noisey caught up with the group to talk about paradiddles, Motionless In White, and why Frosted Mini-Wheats are far superior to Skittles.
