Each Monday I like to take a look at a piece of media that stands out to me. This could be anything from an episode of a TV show or cartoon or just an album I think you should enjoy.
This week allow your ears to enjoy the sounds of Babymetal
Song Selection: Gimme Chocolate
I know this came out last year and was a big hit, but Babymetal recently landed themselves back into my playlist. This has got to be one of the most confusing bands to see in a picture, video or live. These are three teenage girls who sing pop lyrics against heavy metal music, and they are extremely popular. I’m not saying that this band shouldn’t have any of the popularity it has, I’m just glad that new takes on established music styles have been taken. Babymetal has toured with some of the most popular heavy metal bands and they bring in crowds just as big as theirs. I belive it says a lot about a band when the language is different, but the music still translates all around the world.
