I used to think that the best part of getting old was the fact that I could watch Jeopardy and drink white wine and no one would think I’m weird, but now I have a whole new outlook on my elderly years. That’s because this 67-year-old woman has shown me that there’s so much more to look forward to. Like, for example, being the lead singer of a grindcore band, which is exactly what she’s doing now.

Self-dubbed, “The Grindmother,” this Canadian mother initially started singing at the request of her son for his band, but then had such a good time doing so, decided to embark on her own project. And if you think this is just a gimmick, it’s not. Her work is attracting attention from heavy metal greats, like Ozzy Osbourne who recently tweeted about her music.

Check out her work for yourself by watching the video above. If you dig that, download it via her Bandcamp.
