Watch This 14-Year Old Drummer Cover Slipknot’s ‘Unsainted’, Absolutely Smash It

Written by Alex Gallagher on August 28, 2019

Earlier this month, drummer Maren Alford uploaded an absolutely killer playthrough of ‘Unsainted’, the lead single from Slipknot‘s latest album We Are Not Your Kind, which was released back in May.

Loudwire posted about the video earlier in the week, and it’s since gone viral – as it bloody should. Alford, who is 14 and drums for an “all-girl power trio” called Not Ur Girlfrenz, absolutely crushes Jay Weinberg’s drum part in the video.

“Jay Weinberg is one of my favorite drummers, and I’m excited to cover one of his songs,” wrote Alford in the video’s description. “The moment I heard Slipknot ‘Unsainted’ I knew this was the one! Very proud to be in the SJC Drums artist family with Jay!”

The video has racked up around 87,000 views since it was posted a couple of weeks ago, and has received a ton of positive comments.

“I have worked with musicians with 20 years experience who can’t play that accurately, powerful and quick on a relatively basic kit. Absolutely flawless,” said one commenter.

“Has Jay been notified of his replacement?” wrote another.

Watch Alford’s cover of ‘Unsainted’ below. Slipknot’s upcoming Australian tour alongside Metallica kicks off in October.
