If you haven't seen the footage yet from 'America's Got Talent,' you may be witnessing the future of heavy metal.

Before we get into the awesomeness that is this young up-and-coming band, let's first delve into the origin of their unique name 'Murp.' According to Loudwire,  for those who may not know exactly what the word ‘Murp’ meant, luckily the band clears up any confusion with an explanation on the band's Facebook page: “Murp – Used to imply contentedness. Also a good way to respond to a question without giving an answer.”

Now that you know what Murp means, let’s give a little background on the band itself. Murp formed in 2010, when the brother and sister team of Izzy and Aaralyn, respectively, wanted to get on the TV show ‘iCarly’ so badly that they made a music video to send to Nickelodeon. From then on, Murp have been lighting up the Internet with their cover of Jane’s Addiction’s ‘Mountain Song’ and other tunes, along with the original song ‘Zombie Skin,’ which the duo performed on ‘America’s Got Talent’ for judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Melanie ‘Scary Spice’ Brown and Heidi Klum.

After some deliberation by the judges, Murp got the necessary votes to move on to the next stage of the show. We wish them the best of luck and hope they win it all on 'America's Got Talent' but regardless of what happens, Murp looks like a force to be reckoned in the metal world for years to come. Watch their performance on 'America's Talent in the video below.
