BABYMETAL consists of band members:
Su-metal (Suzuka Nakamoto – Age 16)
Moametal (Moa Kikuchi – Age 14)
Yuimetal (Yui Mizuno – Age 14)
If at any point in your life you’ve thought about Japanese teens singing to heavy thrashing guitars and drums, this sounds just like that. BABYMETAL covers a wide gamut of topics ranging from chocolate to what I can only assume is a possessed neck brace. The band has successfully merged a few genres and I found myself enjoying their sound as I went through their online video playlist. I like the heaviness that is metal music but there’s also something about the spunky sound of J-pop that changes the way the whole song feels when listening to Gimichoko.
If you were to look through my music library it would be mostly metal of varying genres. I might have to add j-pop/metal fusion to that now.
