We first learned about Unlocking The Truth when this video showing them doing a super heavy breakdown in the middle of Times Square popped up.

We knew immediately that we had to endorse them.

Brooklyn pre-teens Malcolm Brickhouse, Jarad Dawkins and Alec Atkins are a rare kind of awesome. There aren’t a lot of young African-American kids from Brooklyn playing metal. What’s more is that they seriously shred. This video created by the team at Mountain Dew tells the whole story…

Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse (awesome name alert!) plays the Orange #4 Jim Root Terror Head and #4 212 Speaker Cab.


Bassist Alec Atkins chooses the Terror Bass 500 Head with an OBC115 Speaker Cab.



What started in 2007 as “Tears of Blood” (again, what a freaking awesome name) has now exploded into popular culture and there’s no reason to believe they’re going to slow down anytime soon. The interviews keep coming in and the songs keep getting written. We think you should definitely keep an eye out for their next move because Unlocking The Truth is here to stay.
