Young sibling band rocks out to Rammstein and....Medieval classics?

I came across this article that highlights a sibling band called the "Children Medieval Band," with siblings Stefan (9), Olga (8), and Cornelia (5).  They all play a number of instruments and practice and perform covers of their favorite songs.  Their parents have modified some of the lyrics of the songs, making them more appropriate for the young trio.  Check them out!

The Children Medieval Band Rock Out Rammstein Tunes

If you think there’s no correlation between metal and cuteness, you’ve yet to witness the Children Medieval Band rocking out covers of their favorite Rammstein classics.

The adorable trio is made up of three siblings, with the wee drummer Cornelia clocking in at a whopping five years old. Stefan, the elder-statesmen of the group, is nine years old and plays a bevy of instruments from violin to keyboard, to trumpet and xylophone. His eight year old sister Olga rocks the violin and keys as well.

According to some stats posted by the trio’s parents on their YouTube page, the three children practice music an hour a day and look tense because they are concentrating on their recordings and they don’t really like “shake-butt” music. Future metalheads in the making?

As far as any concerns for their youngsters playing Rammstein tunes, their parents say that the children are well-rounded and love everything from Little Richard to Rammstein. They feel that the “unique combination of immense power, tension, glorious themes and subtle infusion of good taste romanticism, makes them [Rammstein] the best musicians of the past 20 years.”

Thanks to for turning us on to these mini-metalers!

I have nothing but respect for the parents of the kids for letting them develop their artistic potential.It feel really refreshing to see youngsters who differ from the mass and express their uniqueness trough music / even if they were just listening to Rammstein as playing in on a whole different level/
