People were blown away.

The post has had more than 24 million views on TikTok alone, though it has shown up elsewhere, including Twitter.

Someone named @catsRbetter81 had this to say.

And by a funny coincidence, here’s Dorothea playing Disturbed’s Down With the Sickness. It’s five minutes and 39 seconds of pure metal.
