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?

To be honest, I thought that was some pretty good stuff, the second track especially ('Li Ne', i think it was called?). It's unique (J-pop and Metal, come on!), and also very catchy and enjoyable to listen to. I'll look to check some of their other stuff out.

Because: Japan.
Also, I think they (Japanese) are trolling metal fans.

This genre is so epic, really I was really into extreme genres of metal like nu metal and this is the way I want metal to evolve! You can't possible think that the new Death/Black metal bands release something original, this japanese created a complete new genre approved by all the Hipsters.

This is the best thing that happened to metal since KoRn reinvented it.

You may not like it first like when you first started to listen to Death metal because you wanted to be accepted by the other metalheads, but after a few tries you will think this guys are pure genius. Japanese you never disappoint me! I knew you were up to something great after the great hit of "Gangnam Style" by Sigh

We have to recognize that sound strangely well when compared to other bands (bands like Korn or other shit)

I quite genuinely like this band. Although liking some elements of J-Pop anyway probably helps that quite a lot.

Strange that nobody revived this thread in regards of recent Babymetal related events, such as their European tour (and mainstage performance at Sonisphere UK) and arriving first at Metal Hammer's "world cup" (ok, just another online voting award, but still).

Anyway, I knew about them for well over a year and liked the idea since, like many other "idols" bands directed to pervs kids, they introduce their young audience to varied music genres including hard rock (that would not happen even in a million years in France). But this time it was metal, so that was even better!

Yet since I've watched those videos of the Sonisphere gig I dug a bit further to a point I fear I might just be addicted: 95% of what I've listened in the past 2 weeks was Babymetal only... and I must add that I did listen to three times as much music as I usually do in that period.

If you like'em that much, then allow them to the database, mr. staff

While I absolutely despise the music I somehow enjoy the fact that they exist.

I guess it boils down to the whole idea of wanting to watch the world burn even if that world is a genre I love so much.

Oh you two - it was a random video on some website. But, good lord that chick looks like one of the babymetal girls. I hope I've seen some other Japanese demoiselle. She really does look alike.

First time I've ever heard someone call Babymetal nu metal, they really aren't. Musically they are pretty eclectic, both in terms of metal subgenres they mix and pop genres they include. Anyway, Babymetal is cool, mainly because of how absurd it is.

Nah. It's not good at all. My pleasure of seeing their very existence is out of sheer masochism together with the joy of seeing people hate them.
