The rise of Babymetal

The rise of Babymetal

The first thing you might think when you see Babymetal is ‘What The?!’ and if we’re being completely honest here, it’s exactly what the members of Babymetal thought when introduced with the concept. The lead vocalist Suzuka Nakamoto once said in an interview to MTV, “The first time we heard the idea for Babymetal, we were like “What the?!”.

But if we’re still being honest Babymetal could possibly be our favourite thing to come out of Japan since Death Note, and that is really saying something.

If you’re not familiar with the band yet you’re in for a collosal treat. Babymetal fuse metal and ‘Jpop’ (Japanese pop) creating an incredible juxtaposition of cute, aggression, electronics and rock, often producing insane results. Their current most popular track ‘Gimme Chocolate’ has had more than 11 million views on Youtube, [watch below].
