I really don’t know what to make of Japanese metal sensations BabyMetal or I should say I don’t understand the phenomena that is BabyMetal. The group made up of Su-Metal, Yuimetal, and Moametal (they are know Funko Pops as well) have taken the metal world by storm with their unique style that mixes J-Pop with Metal. The band which bakes these phenoms is where the true story is for me because they guys are bad ass. Takayoshi Ohmura is a very experienced guitarist who has played with the likes of Marty Friedman and he is backed by Leda (Guitar), Mikio Fujioka (Guitar), Boh (Bass), Yuya Maeta (Drums), and Hideki Aoyama (Drums). The band recently unleashed a new track for all their fans to hear called Karate and let me tell you that the music is bad ass. While the verses (sung in Japanese) need a little getting used to, the music is heavy and right up my alley. The choruses are actually very catchy and I will give them that, but they are just another version of Rammstein. A band that sings in an entirely different language that fascinates all of us. The true question is whether they can last as long as Rammstein has? Check out Karate below and look for the groups new album Metal Resistance in stores on April 1ST:
