Featured Japanese Band : Baby Metal


With the busy work schedule writing seems to be leisure time for me, but when  I heard this Japanese band's song which was introduced to me by Elie, I was so inspired to write about them and introduce them to you as well.  Dear readers please welcome ---> BABY METAL!


Did some research on them and was surprised to know that the oldest among them is only 15.  Also, translated their single, Ijime, Dame, Zettai (イジメ、ダメ、ゼッタイ) which when translated to English means, "No more bullying / Bullying, No, Never".  It was not very typical to find songs which had good messages like this plus their sound is really awesome and unique.  Why?  Imagine hearing heavy metal and then JPop all at once and in combination.

If you are not convinced then let me bring up, Ijime, Dame, Zettai from Baby Metal performed by Su-Metal (vocal & dance), Moametal (scream & dance) and Yuimetal (scream & dance).


Baby Metal is actually part of a bigger group called, Sakura Gakuin which literally means "Cherry Blossom Academy").  It is a Japanese girl idol group, formed in 2010 by the Amuse talent agency.  Suzuka Nakamoto, 15 years old, is the Second Generation of Student Council President and a Junior High Year 3.  While, Mizuno Yui and Kikuchi Moa are both Junior High Year 1 and are 13 years old.  Considering their age they are one awesome group.

Sakura Gakuin was formed in April 2010 and participated in the first ever Tokyo Idol Festival 2010. While, Baby Metal was formed out of the Heavy Music Club on March 2012.  Here is another song from this epic group.


So what do you think?  Want to know more about them?  Well here is an interview form Otaku-Verse-Zero:


And to end our feature on BABY METAL here is one of the weirdest things you can see from them... let us all welcome Sadako doing the headbang!  Yeah!!!!
