The two young brothers in hard rock band Breach the Barrier have formed a brutal new side project aptly named Brotality, but instead of covering another metal band for their first music video, they’ve done something quite different.

Putting their own aggressive spin on “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” the 2015 debut single from another young musician, Silent√≥, the boys took a chart-topping hip-hop track and made it into a headbanging rock song.

Bryce, 13, and Reece Maopolski, 12, are from Narrowsburg, New York, but they record their music at After Image Studios in Scranton, filming the accompanying music video with the vast valley of Honesdale on display behind them.

The Christian metal duo, who play guitar, bass, and drums and sing all on their own, also recently covered “How He Loves” by John Mark McMillan with youth band leader Jacqlyn Hyde Olecki on vocals to celebrate Easter.

Are these guys adorable or badass? You decide!
