Watch Short Video About Amazing Heavy Metal Rock Band 'Unlocking The Truth'


Starting today and through this weekend, I’m going to post a series of inspiring video

shorts about black musicians who are breaking boundaries, because… why not?

There are so many unbelievable fantastic and talented black musicians who

are following their own paths and thinking “outside

the box.”  Not only should they be wider known, but also, it all goes back to

what S & A is all about – what defines black imagery and how it’s portrayed

in the media.

Which leads me to today’s video about the heavy metal

rock group Unlocking The Truth, who

are Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins, two Flatbush Brooklyn six graders who, along with new bassist Alec Atkins, have caused an absolute sensation in the underground rock movement.

They’ve already appeared on W. Kamau Bell’s show Totally

Biased on FX  (HERE), and their goal, according to their website

(HERE), is to simply be the “world’s best heavy metal bands, and with

their music, they want to encourage their fans to just be themselves and not be

intimidated by what people say.”  

All this means, of course, is that they have been totally

ignored by the black media since “they don’t

do what black people are supposed to do” (Though watch. Wanna bet they will now after we’ve done it because they have no imagination?)

So here’s the video about them created by The Avant Garde Diaries.
