If the rest of their music sounds like what I heard in that clip, I will be interested. Going to go check them out now.

So they combined Techno Metal with J-Pop?
http://www.metalinjection.net/tv/view/7881/baby-metal---jappop-metal-band-with-young-girls-on-vocals

It sounds more like a mashup than anything serious. The music is Techno Metal with J-Pop vocals. I would't be surprised if the girls were actually vocaloids.

If it is a joke I give it 4/5 stars for being amusing.

If it is serious, I give it a 2/5. I got a chuckle out of it, but if anyone seriously told me they liked the music they are never allowed to touch the radio dial ever again and will be tazered if they get within 5 feet of the CD player.

They should have gone a more Symphonic/Melodic Metal route with the girl voices.

This is why we go to Finland for good Metal music, not Japan....

After seeing a couple songs..

I can agree that the girls have too much of a cute tone during some of the parts, but the music is all good, similar to that of some Touhou and Vocaloid stuff I've heard. Let me add, DDR and DJMax as well.

Huh, okay. When I heard about opera and metal being combined, that seemed a little crazy to me. So I guess we'll see where this goes. Their music didn't sound bad. Certainly different.

BABYMETAL is only a sub unit of the group Sakura Gakuin. If you don't know that, then you're not a real fan. If you did know that already, then I commend you for truly caring. I've been a Sakura Gakuin fan before I was a fan of BABYMETAL, so I really hate when people call themselves fans of them without even knowing where they are from. I'm not asking you to be a fan of Sakura Gakuin, but you should at least know about them, before you can truly call yourself a fan. I don't mean to dampen the mood but a lot of the fans of Sakura Gakuin are upset about how some BABYMETAL "fans" don't even know that they're just a sub unit of another group. I hope you will take the time to find out at least the bare basics of Sakura Gakuin, before going around saying you're a fan of one of their sub units. And yes, BABYMETAL is not the only sub unit in Sakura Gakuin. I won't say more, do the research on your own. I hope BABYMETAL can gain some more true fans. =)

Definitely not a fan. 12-14 yr olds trying to be sexy and hardcore is just stupid. It's so obviously a gimmick and I can't respect it at all.

Why? i can be a fan without knowing about Sakura Gakuin just like i can be a fan of an Anime even without reading the manga. i started liking Baby Metal for there music not the group they spawned from..Lastly can we stop with this "True Fan" BS makes you sound like an elitist snob.
