7-year-old Railyn the daughter of DisasterTheory’s frontman Mark Thomas makes her vocal debut in the band’s rendition of ‘Cry Little Sister’ the theme song of the movie ‘Lost Boys’. The Pittsburgh Nu-Metal act makes their return after their notorious collaboration with rappers Marshall Mathers and Swifty McVay on their song ‘Overcome’.
Mark Thomas had this to say about ‘Cry Little Sister’;
‘It’s really not a song we ever thought we would do. My wife ultimately wanted us to do it because it’s a song she really likes and it would give my 7-year-old daughter Railyn the opportunity to officially be on a released track. She has always wanted to be a singer but has never really had an outlet for that until now. Ultimately I think it turned out pretty well.’
DisasterTheory utilizes fast-paced riffing on ‘Cry Little Sister’ while still maintaining the original eerie atmosphere of the original version. Railyn’s beautiful singing in the chorus is what makes this rendition of the goth rock classic unique. It’s the ingredient that makes this song even more creepy while breathing new life into it. Railyn’s involvement in her father’s band inspired her to pursue a career in singing and releasing her own music in the future.
More About The Band:
With hard-hitting riffs, gruff vocals, turn tables, and rapping, DisasterTheory’s style of nu-metal music will get you pumped and energized for the day. Hailing from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania, USA, DisasterTheory, is the continuation of the golden age of rap metal. DisasterTheory delivers its style of emotion-filled deep lyrics, as well as angst, to the masses. Often compared to artists such as Linkin Park, Korn, and Three Days Grace, DisasterTheory takes a serious and heartfelt approach to their music from a very personal and honest perspective and then combines it with heavy drums, heavy guitars, a killer bass line, some turntables, and both clean and gruff vocals and even some rap. The inspiration DisasterTheory pulls from is as diverse as the band members. They draw inspiration from artists like Mike Shinoda, Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, and even some classical composers. DisasterTheory has been featured in IMAAI and West Virginia’s 100.1 WCLG, among others. DisasterTheory has also released two full-length albums since 2019, their latest being “Destination Nowhere,” and has recorded heavy metal covers of classic songs such as What’s Up, Genie In A Bottle, and Gangster’s Paradise.
