While Slipknot are tearing up stages on their current “Knotfest Roadshow” tour, one youthful group of musicians is tearing up their neighborhood with a cover of the metal band’s “The Devil in I”.
In a new video produced by the O’Keefe Music Foundation, which provides instruments and equipment to kid musicians to record and film their performances, 8-year-old singer Taylor Jade Campbell leads a group of teen musicians on the cover of the track off Slipknot’s 2014 album, .5: The Gray Chapter.
Accompanying the cover is a slick video in which Campbell’s dad warns the group not to play Slipknot, as he heads out to work. But, of course, that’s exactly what they do. As they rock the track, area kids wreak havoc on the neighborhood, culminating with them rocking out to the young music act.
While little Taylor Campbell shares a name with Corey Taylor, her pink shirt and clean, sweet vocals stand in sharp contrast to the Slipknot singer’s vibe and sound, yet she still manages to pack in some youthful angst in her delivery.
