No just a fan. Yes I did original make a thread in the Rock/Metal section but was met with allot of negativity and ignorance.

Apparently BABYMETAL weren't "Metal" enough for them.

So I decided to put a thread in the General section. To Inform and provide a forum for discussion on all things Babymetal, Hopefully free from the same negativity that ruined the previous thread.

So...what do you expect when people don't agree with you. A "discussion" if you will.

They're catchy, but you have to admit that there's absolutely no talent. They're mass produced. Like any other pop band out there at the moment.

I would definitely disagree. I feel they are extremely talented. The lead singer, Suzuka Nakamoto is a brilliant vocalist, her voice is so pure and her delivery is outstanding. Especially on her solo songs "Akatzuki and Akumu no Rondo. Her vocal combined with the excellent metal instrumental creates a beautiful combination of music

This is my favourite Babymetal song


The lyrics are amazing
Here's a translation of what she is singing

Akumu no Rondo (Nightmare Rondo)

The waned moon has lit up
the insanity rampant in the shade.
The laughter resounds around.
It bares its fangs and its eyes gleam.

I can't escape from it.
It flickers slowly
appearing and disappearing in my mind.
A nightmare rondo is being repeated.

The awakening light
is gone far away out of my sight.
I can do nothing but run
through the darkness.
In the woods, in the fountain,
I hide myself holding my breath,
but it's still coming closer to me.
A stagnant voice. An endless night.

Ah...

If I can no longer get out of here,
won't you show me your figure?
It flickers slowly
appearing and disappearing in my mind.
A nightmare rondo is being repeated.

The awakening light
is gone far away out of my sight.
I can do nothing but fall
into the darkness.

By all means like a band, but your comments are bordering on fanaticism. Your threads are just an advertisement, and any one who has constructive criticism you mute or block their comments.

I think I'll just agree to disagree (I am a metaller, but I do like other styles of music...so don't give me that bullsh*t of "Well, then how are you a metaller!" )

To be honest you remind me of that character from Perfect Blue!

That is your opinion, and you are entitled to express it. You clearly don't like this band, I do. So like you say the best thing it to agree to dissagree

I said "they're catchy", not that I disliked them. But I'm not as hardcore a fan as you seem to be!

Dublin Red Devil said:
I do.


Oh we know....

I'd imagine it was locked in part because you were acting like a complete spammer, constantly bumping the thread.

Some armature video from the first show in Paris Tuesday night, Looks like a amazing show, Live band an everything. BABYMETAL's world tour has begun.



Played a show in Germany tonight,

Mainstage at Sonisphere on Saturday. Huge gig for the band, First time playing to a western metal crowd. Apparently they received a very cool message of support Kirk Hammett of Metallica who they performed with in Tokyo last year.

Team Rock interview with the band after they came off stage at Sonisphere

I'll try, But words can't describe just how awesome the BABYMETAL show was tonight at The Forum, London
From the amazing vocals of Suzuka Nakamoto, The unbelievable instrumental from Takayoshi Ohmura (guitar), Leda (guitar), BOH! (bass) and Aoyama Hideki (drum).To the brilliant vocal, dance and performance art of Yui Mizuno and Moa Kikuchi.

I can't describe it is as a mere metal concert, It was an experience and an event in metal music. 'Too Strong'? 'Not if you were there. It was an indescribable experience, Listening to their album, watching their videos, All pale in comparison this outstanding live show

The best show I have ever seen and probably will ever see for as long as I live. Hands down

I could go to other concerts by other bands after this, But what's the point, Nothing will ever top what we experienced in London tonight form the one and only BABYMETAL!
