The O’Keefe Music Foundation is back once again with an excellent group of kids doing a great rendition of a metal classic. This time the group takes on Slipknot‘s 1999 track “Wait And Bleed” while also destroying a house and causing some generalized mayhem. Here’s what the foundation had to say about the cover.
“Six years ago, the students at OMF were inspired by Slipknot‘s ‘Duality’ video and decided that they would record the song and film it…house destruction and all! They then followed that up with ‘The Devil in I’, ‘Before I Forget’ and now this in 2020. But after flipping a car over and setting it on fire, using a 50 foot tree as a battering ram, tearing off a garage door with a truck and having far too many conversations with the local police, this is it. The last OMF house destruction video!
“As with any OMF project there is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes. With ‘Wait and Bleed’ it started with 6 students from around the U.S. spending countless hours practicing and reinterpreting the song. For example, Seb Braganza wrote an entire solo section that does not exist in the original song! The OMF crew had nearly 30 kids from around the country in town that weekend and this was just one of 7 songs that the crew had to film in only 15 hours cuz’ at midnight the police stopped us due to noise ordinance violations. Normally, accomplishing this much would be impossible, but as long as you have an army of amazing volunteers and some of the most talented young musicians in the country, it’s a piece of cake :)”
