Since a few years a group of idols has conquered the hearts and ears of countless people. Babymetal, (in)famous for their "catchy" voices, combined with metal-style guitar riffs and blastbeats, has not only become mainstream, but is highly appreciated by both metalheads and non-metalheads.

Now, this isn't complaining if they are bad now because they're famous, but rather if they are even metal. The term "Kawaii Metal" is itself a paradoxon, but with their new track "Sis. Anger" they spawned a lot of controversy.

I personally think Babymetal are not a real metalband, instead they are - no offense - a musical abomination (much like Glam Rock and Hair Metal). Real Japanese metal has maybe similar interesting lyrics, but at least they use normal voices.
