Link 1: Blabbermouth announcing the release of Metal Resistance.
Yes I'm lazy and tend to get my main info from there for dates and names and albums etc.
I also check reviews both by well-known mags and by bloggers and podcasts.
But it appears that what could have been seen as a gimmick -is now a movement of sorts - cute metal.
I think it needed to be done.
They've been there at the right time with the right stuff, yet often wishing to distance themselves from a genre and prove their authenticity i.e. Nu Metal.
Babymetal haven't done that - they haven't needed to - they have unapologetically placed themselves front and centre with their own thing.
It's enjoyable it makes me smile to hear it. 😊
Give it a listen - you'll not regret it.
Favourite Track: Karate -funky metal as fuck with awesome routine and sass.
