The Top TenXW
Four guys in a garage love metal and you get a metal band. One idol producer loves metal, works with musicians, song writers, choreographers, and artists to make everything right and you get BABYMETAL. Top it off with the fact that everyone involved has fun doing the performances and making the recordings and you get real metal that is fun to listen to, and doesn't need an explicit tag.
Babymetal are an amazing, fresh new take - not only on metal but on music itself!
I've been a JPop fan and a metal fan for years and hearing my two favourite sounds blended together was amazing! Not only this, Babymetal mixes so many different styles and genres together that it opens the doors to a wider audience, and makes you look into different genres!
The music is out-of-this world amazing, from OUTSTANDING musicians to BEAUTIFUL vocals, I've never experienced such power from music before. Each song has it's own piece of culture and a beautiful message behind it. I know thousands and thousands of metal heads, JPop fans and other genre lovers alike who ADORE Babymetal!
SO glad I got to see them LIVE!
Every track is perfect and distinct. Set up with the kind of character that can pull off an amazing new genre. BABYMETAL definitely have a spectacular path ahead of them, with an awesome debut album! This is not an album to forget decades from now

Heavy. Creative. Innovative. This album is yet another illustration of Mastodon's relevance to the genre and how they continue to push the boundaries of heavy music.V1 Comment
