BABYMETAL【SU-METAL (Vocal,Dance) / YUIMETAL (Scream,Dance) / MOAMETAL (Scream,Dance) 】
In 2010, BABYMETAL was formed a unit on the theme of "Kawaii METAL" (The meaning is mix of J-POP IDOL and HEAVY METAL). The music video of "DOKI DOKI☆MORNIG" was published on YouTube, then access from overseas flooded with many comments shocked, and its presence have spread not only in Japan but also to overseas such as North America, South America, Europe and Asia. BABYMETAL is starting to receive attention beyond the idle and beyond Japan, and they are pursuing the road of the only one instead of the number one.

The group first appeared on Sakura Gakuin's debut album Sakura Gakuin 2010 Nendo ~message~ in April 2011, performing the track "Do・Ki・Do・Ki☆MORNING". In October 2011 they released a DVD containing the music video for the song.

Babymetal is gaining world-wide attention because it's completely unique. The gimmick is simple: "Little girls singing heavy metal?!" The domain of aggressive bearded guys has been breached by CUTIE☆STYLE and amazingly, it works! The music is innovative and well-composed. The new single "Hedobangya!!" is a major feat of legitimate metal composition. Metal fans cannot ignore BABYMETAL.
Babymetal transcends the idol music genre. People with no interest in idol singers enjoy Babymetal. I think this is a bitter pill for Sakura Gakuin fans to swallow, because we love all the sub-units and want success for the group as a whole. I discovered SG through "Doki-Doki Morning". I loved it, investigated, found another SG sub-unit called TWINKLESTARS, and was completely hooked. But, I am not typical of the world audience.
I am very proud of Babymetal and wish them much success.
But I also want to see new Twinklestars videos!!

BABYMETAL: NO MUSIC, NO IDOL?
In preparations for their new release, the highly popular, fast rising, idol group BABYMETAL have entered into a deal with Tower Records.
The collaboration is called “NO MUSIC, NO IDOL?”
As part of this campaign these limited edition posters shown below are being handed out on a first come first get situation.
BABYMETAL will also be performing at select Tower Record stages in July and will see the addition of a DJ.
To attend the live, you must have the ticket that comes in their July 4 new release.
So what do you think about the posters, they really look like a different group than before?

Erm...ain't the Sakura Gakuin thread enough?
That's exactly what I was thinking.
I saw no BABYMETAL thread a while ago, and I was going to make one, but then I was thought BABYMETAL is a subunit, I'm not sure if it's okay to have it's own thread since it's not it's own group.
But if it's okay, then I'm happy

Well, I personally thought the Sakura Gakuin thread was enough but since they're gaining so much outside attention I guess it is appropriate.
@CemetaryRust: Lol, Minimoni was my "introduction" to J-Pop too, I found them through my Hamtaro obsession though. I'm not a metal head per se but I do enjoy the genre, I'll go from a SOAD track to a Minimoni track and then on to Perfume without missing a beat so no shame in your game. I second iwabo's recommendation for Yuyoyuppe
and I'd say to also check out Momoiro Clover Z's Moretsu Uchu Kokyokyou Dai 7 Gakusho "Mugen no Ai".

So funny when metel fans don't realise that this is an idol act and not the real deal
Freak accident discovery of the day:

the neck brace will come in handy when I spot the consequence of being spontaneous on my next credit card statement 32 copies on order lol.
On another note, sometimes I almost wish videos like that wouldn't gain international attention, the comments on youtube are like all over the place from plain stupid to racist to just sick...
