Heavy Metal Musicians 'Review' JULIET's 'My First Hardcore Song' Video

Juliet, an eight-year-old Brisbane, Australia girl, has become an Internet sensation after releasing a "brutal" video for "My First Hardcore Song", a track about her pet fishes and dog.

According to Ninemsn, Juliet's mother Kristina Childs uploaded the video, which was put together by Queensland producer and family friend Rob Sharpe, on YouTube. The clip has since attracted more than eight million views.

"It's been incredibly overwhelming," Childs said. "[After the video was posted] my phone and all my devices were just constantly beeping. There's been so many emails from radio and TV stations wanting to do interviews."

Juliet's father, Steven Childs, is a musician in Australian rock band BRIGHT LIGHTS.

The music clip, filmed in a local park, opens with Juliet climbing trees and bashing at imaginary drums before shouting the opening lyrics, "Get your two step on!"

The Daily News enlisted the help of several heavy metal musicians to review Juliet's debut.

Dave Davidson of REVOCATION: "The Internet can be a very disturbing and frightening place, but every once in a while it can produce things that are downright heartwarming. Clocking in at just under a minute, 'My First Hardcore Song' by 8-year-old Juliet is completely adorable and totally BRUTAL! This video's got it all: stuffed animals, real animals, trampolines and, of course, hardcore moshing. I also really dug the sincerity of the lyrics, Juliet isn't singing about political agendas or how tough she is, she just loves her dog Robert and her fishes damn it! Get your two-step on!"

Rick Armellino of THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE: "I don't care what anyone says, this girl is rocking more charisma and going harder than about 98 percent of today's hardcore bands."

Tommy Victor of PRONG: "Rebecca Black meets Harley Flanagan. Great! Are they auditioning guitar players for a tour? Where and when? My 7-year-old nephew wants to try out. Or maybe I should. A little bit of botox, who knows? Maybe I can be a star!"

Oderus Urungus of GWAR: "I found myself imagining the little girl being torn apart by a Manticore. But I mean, hell, it got like 8 million hits the second it came out, so there must be something cool about it."

Sal Abruscato (A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, LIFE OF AGONY, TYPE O NEGATIVE): "I love it; it was so good and the little girl did an awesome job fronting the hardcore vocals. I will look forward to hearing more from Juliet."

Tony Foresta of MUNICIPAL WASTE: "This is pretty funny, I guess, but mostly it raises a huge concern. What would happen if this video gets even more popular with the kids and things start getting way out of hand. Like three months from now, she has this huge hardcore crew of 7-year-olds. You know, a bunch of little rug rats with sleeves full of temporary tattoos and bad attitudes rolling up to all the hardcore shows kicking everyone in the pit's ass. Selling Now and laters in the bathroom, tagging Unicorns all over the place starting beef with MADBALL and AGNOSTIC FRONT. This could really spin out of control. Be careful out there!!!!"
