#026 / From : Owen Mather (USA)
When my friend suggested I watch this “crazy gimmick” band’s Gimme Chocolate video, my first thought was, “Oh god, what nightmare am I about to go through.”
About halfway through the song, I went from “What the f*ck is THIS???” to “Huh, this is pretty catchy.” Now it’s “Where have you been all my life, BABYMETAL???” Since then I have listened to their entire album, watched just about every youtube video of their live performances, shown my roommates the AWESOME that is BABYMETAL, and am now regretting that I can’t afford to go to Sonisphere to see them live.
And my favorite song is a toss up between Megitsune and Akatsuki Su-Metal’s amazing vocals in Akatsuki send chills down my spine everytime I here it. I find Megitsune stuck in my head almost constantly since I first heard it, as it has very catchy lyrics, and the metal blends very well with the rest of the song. I am looking forward to seeing what’s next in BABYMETAL’s future (and waiting eagerly for my delivery of their CD). Hopefully we will get to see them live here in the USA (HINT HINT).
