Within the past year was when I first discovered what is the band of BABYMETAL. Now I say band but I would honestly have to classify them as something else. That is something truly unique and all its own. If you haven’t heard of BABYMETAL well you soon will. They are a metal band from Japan that are not only taking over the world but they are destroying it where ever they play. What makes them unique is their vocalists. They are Japanese Idols, what we would consider to be pop artists from American Idol. There is Suzuka Nakamoto known as “Su-metal”, Yui Mizuno known as “Yuimetal” and Moa Kikuchi known as “Moametal” These three young woman are powerhouses. I was blown away at the vocal range on these young women. I would compare them to Amy Lee of Evanescence or Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation. Both of whom I’ve had the honor of seeing live. If you think I’m crazy check out BABYMETAL’S live version of their hit One. They have been even featured on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. Now yes him and I both share the name Stephen and lets be honest, have either of us lead you wrong. Here at Slammin Tunes we celebrate rock and metal from all over the world. I can guarantee you that BABYMETAL is a band you will hear among the names of Slipknot, Korn and Metallica. Check out their hit song Karate and the music video that will just blow you away.
Just saying they need to do a US tour, not just because I want to see them but…who wouldn’t want to see them. Now let’s get them here.
