Posted another of their videos in the metal thread a few days ago. I think the term being used is "Kawaii Metal". Not sure if legitimate sub-genre of metal or just Japan being Japan. Would probably listen to them over any Nu-Metal since the instrumentals seem to be pretty power metal.

Japan's age of consent is 13 I think. Lead singer too old. Not pedo-bear approved.
Aww nigga shit listening to them old school beats. +1 big adebisi
I sent this to my 70 year old father as a joke. He can't stop listening to them now. What have I done?
Well fuck me, I actually enjoyed that.
It would be more amusing if they were the driving force behind the project and not puppets put in front of some studio musicians by a clever producer. A counter-example would be the french industrial duo Carbon Airways. I am not a big fan and english pseudo-rapping by a 14 year old french boy is what it is, but it's commendable for they fact they are the authors of their music from the start (though they have now the backing of professionals).
The best part of that video was the horrific attempt to make it look like they are playing guitars.
And LOL @ Foxs instead of Horns.
I guess the radiation is still taking it's toll after the bomb was dropped...
jesus christ I just watched that first video 9 times in a row. holy fuck I am in 100%
I am a huge fan of Boh (the bass player in the live band). His tapping on the 6 string bass is astounding.
Babymetal was scheduled for Sonisphere on the Bohemia Stage on July 6, but because of huge demand they were moved to the Apollo main stage on July 5. Basically, they are opening for Iron Maiden. Go figure.
I think they are awesome. The music is good (well, some of it makes my teeth hurt . . .but most of it is really well done) - and no one can deny that the girls are energetic and entertaining.
Actually, they're on right before Ghost, but the same stage as Iron Maiden, yeah. They better not bring that fake ass skeleton band though or the Sonisphere crowd will get ugly in a hurry. If the band isn't live, and the girls aren't singing live, it'll be a disaster.
I don't think the Sonisphere fans will get ugly at all, either way. After all, the girls are there because of overwhelming fan support. I have friends whose daughters belong to Cherri Bomb, a band that played Sonisphere 2012. At the time the all-female band was 12, 13, 14 and 16. They were embraced with open arms by the crowds. Of course, they write/sing their own songs and are extremely accomplished musicians.
By the way, I have just read that Babymetal have sold out the Electric Ballroom in the UK, and their concert there has been moved to The Forum.
I wish i could see babymetal in montreal
Whelp, the invasion of the USA has begun.
Babymetal has announced the US leg of their world tour. They will be playing a solo show in Los Angeles, and opening for Lady Gaga for several shows on the west coast. The east coast has been spared.
Just saw this video from their concert in NYC a couple of months ago. Their band kills it, and when the lead singer takes the stage, she does a hell of a good job.
