BABYMETAL in the news part 2
here is various source talking about our little kawaii soldier as they conquering the entire world right now!
Their very first appearance as BABYMETAL in 2011.
In the cutting-edge, metal-meets-idol world of BABYMETAL (and yeah, it’s always in caps), February 2014 was a memorable month in an already memorable year.
If you are a regular reader of mine, you know that I am on a quest to take in as much European power/prog metal as I can. Yes, I know that Japan is not part of Europe, but this band I discovered deserves a mention. The band, Babymetal consists of some extremely talented power metal musicians that would rank up there with the badass European bands that I am hearing. But, they are fronted by 3 young teenage girls who duet back and forth and harmonize. But wait…They can also belt out the occasional guttural growl. Every now and then, I like a little bit of cookie monster. Just not throughout the songs like so many death metal bands think its necessary to do.

Does it work? Well… ummm… watch the new video for “Gimme Chocolate!!” and decide for yourself. And if you can’t get the song out of your head, there are 16 more videos on the band’s official YouTube channel.
If you’re a metalhead who’s tired of macabre, folkloric lyrics and just wants to headbang to a song about the nummyness of chocolate, or if you’re a pop fanatic sick of cloying ballads about lost loves, you should probably check out Babymetal.
Whatever they are, it can be confusing. It’s not so much a blend of pop and metal, like they say; it’s more one followed by the other and then back again. But somewhere in between you really get into the swing of things and then it’s like you’re stuck there. You can’t get it out of your head.
