The original post

Posted by bj_waters on 20.03.2012 at 01:36
Because I must inflict this upon others, I give you two singles from Babymetal, the newest project from Japan for driving people like us insane.



It's like the worst parts of nu metal and J-Pop were blended together. And if you think this one was bad, watch the other one. Just wait for the "rap" segment. You'll know it when you see it.



inb4 Japan is weird. This goes beyond "weird;" this hurts. The thing is, I like some J-Pop (mostly because I like electronic music in general), and I like heavy metal (obviously), and I even wouldn't mind if there wasn't some kind of fusion between the two, but it would MOST DEFINITELY NOT sound like this. This is just painfully bad.

Nevertheless, my opinions aside, what are your reactions?

So, another example of "So Bad, It's Good?"

Also I wanna see this video Cynic keeps talking about.


I actually like their music.

Yeah like, I could care less about what they're doing, but playing a non japan-freak-show metal concert is edging me over. If I was long to heavy mtl, I'd be annoyed, hopefully it's easy to leave for 30ish minutes and then come back.

Oh cool, I was unaware that there was
More than one stage.

Yeah I'd do that as well, or hop out for a dart or something, anything but watching that

Okay, coincidently I've been in Japan the last few days, and just came to the US today. On the way back, I listened to the music on the plane's radio and I swear the majority of their j-pop selection had a noticeable metal influence (it was the second best channel after the 80's, which even played "Run to the Hills"), though it's a bit hard to know for sure as the influence was mainly in guitar solos. So j-pop + metal isn't actually that odd, what's odd is the more melodeath oriented style of Babymetal versus the more neoclassical/power/speed influence heard in anime theme songs and some alternative rock and eurobeat. I blame X Japan.

If people are generally worried about this, keep your pants on. Its gonna be ok. Breathe.

I'd rather have Babymetal on the airwaves than Blood on the Dance Floor. Period. Its literally no comparison. Babymetal at least has a semblance of fun to their music. Its harmless stuff that doesn't have a direct hurtful message.

I dunno why so many people are up in arms about it, personally. Yeah, its not like Iron Maiden spawned three Japanese daughters (who would've been taken to the slaughter) but its also not like they're all of a sudden now labeling Katy Perry metal just because some jackoff in the studio played a B in the background of one of her newest musical abortions.

I don't see too many people here up in arms about it. Most of us who don't like it are just saying how bad we think it sounds. Like I think it's absolutely awful but I'm not exactly losing sleep over the fact that it exists.

Yeah, New Zealanders don't get out much, being stuck on an island at the edge of nowhere and all. I have a friend who lives there and she confirmed that. I've been there once, it's a nice place.

Erg hmm, back to Babymetal.

Oh. Somehow I didn't read that part.
He said he was moving back from Indonesia, so I assumed it was his country...

*two

Except it's not actually nu metal, except for maybe those first two songs in the thread. Also J-Pop is awesome, much better than A-Pop and K-Pop.

Yep J pop is the best pop subgenre imo
If they played J Pop and black metal instead it would be even better. Now that would be something interesting.
I wonder if there's any blackened j pop band out there
