Baby Metal: Gimme Chocolate

No, the article only confirms that BABYMETAL utilizes unseen talent, a self-evident observation which no one has ever disputed. It contradicts your dismissive attitude towards these hard-working artists (they are not "session musicians treated like shit"), and it completely overturns the standard knee-jerk reaction hipsters have, claiming that BABYMETAL is nothing more than "manufactured garbage". It is weapons-grade fun crafted by talented musicians with deep indie street cred.

Also Cap'n, I am not trying to be passive-aggressive or insulting when I call you a hipster. If you note, I included myself in that camp! You are what you are, as I am what I am. It's hard for people like us to be objective and look at bands on their own merits, rather than shoe-horning them in to our own incoherent narratives of authenticity.

Finally, as Riskbreaker says, it is actually far less embarrassing than most metal! Whatever else you may claim, I trust you can at least concede his argument, as well as the corollary - that, if one is able to listen to power metal and black metal unironically, one should also be able to listen to BABYMETAL.

She would have died older if it was a boy, and her mark was mostly made on the headsman's block, but she was one of his most interesting wives, I'll give her that.

She was also the hottest one on the show. Well, her and Anne of Cleves, but to be honest, their choice for AoC kind of pissed me off. Joss Stone was delightful, but AoC was supposed to be a hideous CHUD, and there's no way in hell any British monarch would pass up a lady as fetching as Joss Stone.

Well, except maybe Edward II...

Well, that's kinda mean of Kickstarter, if people want to pay this guy to make sexist jokes, I guess that's their business. But on the positive side, he didn't appear to be anywhere near his funding goals in the first place, so I guess nature is just sorting itself out.

Sort of a change of subject here, but does anyone have any advice on how to get started with Kickstarter? A friend of mine just finished a children's book and he needs money to cover printing costs; he's old and computer illiterate, so I offered to help him set up a Kickstarter page. His book is done and he only wants a few hundred dollars, so I figure, shit, with douchebags getting tens of thousands of dollars for bullshit off of Kickstarter, surely an elderly veteran who's won a few awards for his Native American artwork can get a nice children's book published?

(also, I've been wondering who the Skullomania guys are myself. At first I was thinking they might be the dudes from Kiba of Akiba, since one of BABYMETAL's first projects was a split EP with them. But a lot of the stuff on the new album goes technically well beyond anything I've heard KoA do.

My own personal theory is that the core backing band consists of Devon Townsend, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and Janne Warman)

Actually, Cap'n, the musicians behind BABYMETAL are respected indie metal, rock, and EDM stars who, thanks to the band, are getting breaks that they would never otherwise get. If you really want to know who's behind the scenes, here's an extensively researched article on the subject:

http://babymetal.net/behind-babymetal/

Now, just so we're clear, I feel ya, I really do! I'm a music hipster too! I know how it is, worrying about "authenticity" and fretting over "the corporations" all the time, and when I first heard the band, it took me a little while to get over my prejudice. But BABYMETAL is a talented group of people. The songwriters are serious musicians who know their shit and love what they do. The backing band may or may not be session guys, but they've all got serious chops, as you can plainly hear. The girls are very charismatic and fill their roles as frontwomen perfectly, and as mentioned elsewhere, they've got endorsements from "serious" metal gods like Friedman and Trivium (no offense, but between you or Marty, I'll go with Marty's opinion on what is and is not "true metal"). Everyone involved seems to have fun doing what they do, and more than that, their songs just flat-out ROCK. And isn't THAT what's most important? The sound and the feeling? Who cares if BABYMETAL is run by a talent agency, if they play good and sound great?

I mean, if authenticity is REALLY what you're going to complain about, then it bears pointing out that BABYMETAL is no less "authentic" than the Sex Pistols or the Velvet Underground or any of the classic hair metal bands of yore. And since musically they're far better than the Sex Pistols, not to mention most LA-style metal bands up to and including Skid Row, I'm finding it kinda hard to see what the big problem is here.

Here is a sample quote from said ED article:

"You can think of MDE as a lawless biker gang of funny-boys united by their burning hatred of consumerism who live to write and film mind-fuck wisdom bombs that slice up and dismember the belief systems of 9-5 Wal-Mart drones like tactical bayonets mounted on the AK-47 of insanity. MDE is the most widely used finishing attack in the Dragon Ball series, and is Goku's signature attack. MDE is a homeless man shitting in a parking lot and using it to write biblical quotes on the windshields of brand new Scion tC's. "


Bear in mind that this was written by someone in their thirties.

Sam is very amusing, but not in the way he intended. He's the thirty-something version of A-log; jobless, homeless, addicted to video games, and kinda dirty looking, BUT HEY he's a professional troll so that means he's really one of the cool kids... right? Like Nick Bravo pretending to be Sean Baby or something.

His ED article (which he seems to have written himself) sums up his own self-delusions quite nicely.

Their identity is a mystery, a callback to classic Buckethead, before he went all mainstream. Do we complain about Top Gear because nobody knows who the Stig really is?

So why'd it get suspended? Was this fallout from Dark Skyes, the result of something else Sam did, or a false flag inside job trying to make himself seem more relevant than he actually is?

I think he's originally from Germany, but later moved to Norway. Or it could have been the other way around. I think he's alluded to both countries before, and has gotten offended at people who can't figure out where he is from.

Trivium endorses BABYMETAL, so your hypothesis is demonstrably false. I'm sorry if they aren't edgy enough for you, Gmork, but maybe when they grow up they'll write songs about guns and eating people alive?

He's very good, one of my favorite authors, and one of only fiction writers I would actually read, for fun, of my own free will. He specializes in historical fiction novels, of the type: what if semi-mythical historical figures were real people, and also swore/ had sex a lot? His longest running series is set during the Napoleonic era, which is basically Biggles with more stabbings, but my personal favorites are the Romano-British King Arthur books and the Alfred the Conqueror series.

Your mileage may vary, but almost every reasonably intelligent person I know who has a genuine interest in miltary and/or medieval history swears by him.

Sorry, one more. One of the new songs:

This one reminds me SO MUCH of Nightwish, and I'm really glad they're letting Skullomania Guitar and Skullomania Keyboard shred the fuck out of their instruments.

Sorry, I know I'm nerdgasming all over the place, but here's a few quick links for anyone interested in giving them a chance:


Megitsune (probably their biggest hit at the moment)

Iine (very comprehensive song, wicked danceline, and the breakdown is FVCKING KVLT):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVdBBOpSoN4

Uki Uki Midnight (dubstep metal, also gives you a good look at the rest of the band; the skeleton guys)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-2Z_kQpdW0

Headbang (this is the one to show your insecure, self-conscious metalhead friends):

Yeah, Metalocalypse is an apt comparison, as is Andrew WK, as bongoprophet said below. They're basically technical death metal mixed with Jpop, but they also incorporate elements of trance, metalcore, nerdcore, dubstep, rap, Jfolk, and third wave black metal... and it all works, which is the most amazing thing! They're like Marty Friedman's dream band.

This really isn't one of their best songs though, so if they've piqued your interest, I'd recommend you check out some of their other stuff too! Iine may be their most representative song in terms of showcasing a wide breadth of what they offer, but my favorite songs are Uki Uki Midnight and Megitsune, and my favorite video is probably the one for Headbanger.

And JBF, if I was trolling, don't you think I'd be marking for Sakura Gakuin, the Jpop band these three came from originally? (Sakura Gakuin is awesome, btw, def my favorite Idol band and the only one I can listen to unironically, but I know it'd be a social mistake to push them too hard)

Ah, a guro angle! Interesting. Not my thing, but fire and gasoline are pretty metal, and we all know how awesome Rammstein's shows are.

I hope it's Hatsune!

Anyway, John, like simon666 said, the correct tag is BABYMETAL. Or at least Babymetal. That's the way they stylize their name, it's all one word and they capitalize each letter. Sorry, I know that sounds a bit pedantic-nerdy, but future generations of poesters looking for BABYMETAL stuff will probably not be able to find it with the Baby Metal tag.
