A Brooklyn heavy metal band consisting of three black teens from Flatbush just caught their big break.

The band, Unlocking The Truth, has reportedly signed a recording contract with Sony. It could certainly make the boys very wealthy before they even reach high school.

The group consists of 13-year old Malcolm Brickhouse on guitar, 12-year-old drummer Jarad Dawkins and 13-year-old  Alec Atkins on bass.

According to the NY Daily News, Unlocking The Truth’s Sony contract will become lucrative if the band sells well.

They will receive a $60,000 advance to record their first album and up to  $325,000 for their second project. Sony has an option on the table to extend the contract to six albums with escalating advances per album that could be worth up to $1.7 million.

The members of Unlocking The Truth are creating their own unique path in music and should be applauded.

Check out some the group’s videos and let us know what you think in the comments below.
