Now this is something you metalheads will either love or hate. Banana 101.5 are going gaga over an American kiddy metal band that features “the most extreme five-year-old frontwoman to ever pick up a mic.”
Murp is led by five-year-old vocalist Aaralyn and her drummer friend, and their track Zombie Skin has been getting a fair bit of attention.
Banana 101.5 have even gone as far to describe it as “a punishing track that will make your skin rot” – highlighted by Aaralyn’s piercing vocals, which they’ve compared to the likes of Arch Enemy and Agoraphobic Nosebleed.
“In all seriousness, the pint-sized screamer is both captivating and impressive in her guttural skills. Even with plastic fairy wings on her back, you can’t help but feel blown away by the level of aggression that the singer is able to conjure. With just one view of the ‘Zombie Skin’ video, you’ll hear shades of Arch Enemy’s Angela Gossow, along with the franticly piercing screams of Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Kat Katz and Landmine Marathon’s Grace Perry.”
