BABYMETAL article in a Dutch newspaper.

HELP! K3 mixed with loud metal! (*Note: K3 is a Belgian pop group)

They seem like innocent girls. They make very hard/loud metal music. Japan loves it.

Those who keep track of the fast rising and even faster disappearing into oblivion pop phenomenon on web channels as YouTube are used to a lot of things. Experts know that the weirdest pop mostly comes from Asia. From Japan (PonPonPon by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu) or Korea (Gangnam Style by Psy).

Still, most of the experienced You tubers will shy away from Japans latest pop sensation. The act/band BABYMETAL brings two genres together which are almost each others total opposite on the music spectrum. BABYMETAL, as the name implies, makes toddler pop not unlike K3, combined with the most ferocious Metal style: Scorching with all forms of despise against humanity combined: “Death Metal”.

The three BABYMETAL girls look like they came straight from a manga comic. School uniforms, short skits on top of knee stockings. Of course ponytails and a cute bow tie are present as well. The big eyes – which are total manga aesthetics – spell innocence. And their artist names are cute as well: Su-Metal, Moametal and Yuimetal.
