Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is to be contained in a 6 x 6 metre cell, furnished with a bed, a small table and one (1) plastic chair. The walls and ceiling of the cell are to be covered with acoustic foam, and the cell must have an ambient noise level of no greater than 25 decibels. As little sound as possible is to be made within 15 metres of SCP-XXXX-1's cell. Noise level is to be constantly measured, and any sound (exceeding 53 dB) will trigger the enactment of Procedure 432-Khador.

SCP-XXXX-2 must be kept within at least 10 metres of SCP-XXXX-1 at all times. Failure to do so will incite extreme distress in SCP-XXXX-1. For ease of access, SCP-XXXX-2 may be hooked to the belt of SCP-XXXX-1 during testing.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 resembles a Caucasian male of approximately 25 years of age. All current testing procedures have confirmed SCP-XXXX-1 to be physically and psychologically human, except for the auditory anomalous effects. DNA and background testing shows no results matching it's description. SCP-XXXX-1 insists that it must "practice" so as to avoid becoming "rusty", and it can be assumed that this "practice" refers to the practicing of drums, given SCP-XXXX-1's repeatedly vocalised affinity for rhythm-heavy music and drum kit solos.

SCP-XXXX-2 appears to be an Apple Ipod Shuffle, and has shown no sentient or telepathic abilities outside of it's anomalous interactions with SCP-XXXX-1. Despite it's exceedingly small speaker, when interacting with SCP-XXXX-1, it has been recorded to produce sounds of up to 225 dB. SCP-XXXX-1 is also completely unaffected by the severity of this produced sound. Due to this effect, all interaction with SCP-XXXX-2 once activated is prohibited, and only MTF-658-Aural ("12 Deaf Men") are to be ordered to initiate Procedure 432-Khador.

Once music (which is not "heavy metal") is played within the earshot of SCP-XXXX-1, it will appear to become extremely agitated, stating that "It's time to rock and roll." SCP-XXXX-2 will then begin to emit a barely audible sound, which has been confirmed to resemble approximately 4 separate humanoid voices which have been exclusively heard to make references to heavy metal music.

As the music being played to SCP-XXXX-1 continues, the sounds being emitted by SCP-XXXX-2 will become louder. So far, the only known methods of ceasing this sound is to let the song end in its entirety, or to initiate Procedure 432-Khador. The sound increases by 10 dB every 6.7 seconds, and so allowing the song to end is rarely a viable option. Pausing the song before its proper end will do nothing but further agitate SCP-XXXX-1, and will only increase the rate at which SCP-XXXX-2 increases its volume, however the voices have been heard to complain at the absence of "grime". Additionally, resuming the song will not affect SCP-XXXX-2 at all.

SCP-XXXX-2 has caused structural damage in multiple past events, almost all of which took place after the failure of Procedure 432-Khador. These have collectively caused the deaths of ██ Foundation personnel. As a result of these events, multiple personnel were deafened completely (hence MTF-658 Aural). Therefore an application has been submitted to change SCP-XXXX's object class to Keter. Awaiting approval.

Addendum: Procedure 432-Khador: MTF-658-Aural will enter SCP-XXXX's cell, wearing riot gear and Foundation-certified reinforcement braces. They will then subdue SCP-XXXX-1, and play any song that has been deemed "Heavy Metal" or "Hard Rock". This will cause SCP-XXXX-1 to fall asleep immediately, and SCP-XXXX-2 will emit the same 4 voices who will say, in unison: "What is this? I swear, metal is dead." At this point, SCP-XXXX-1 will wake up, appearing dazed and with a migraine. Once SCP-XXXX-1 has regained consciousness, MTF-658-Aural will become as quiet as possible in an attempt to not reactivate SCP-XXXX-2. Currently known songs that have succeeded in deactivating SCP-XXXX include: "Back in Black" by AC/DC, "Killing in the name of" by Rage Against The Machine, and "Chop Suey" by System of a Down. Regardless of Foundation personnel's opinion, currently only these songs are permitted to be utilised in Procedure 432-Khador.
