BABY METAL is not your average Japanese metal band because this group consists of 3 young girls with the oldest being 14 years old dressed in school girl-like uniforms! Don’t let their ages fool you since they are veteran performers more than capable of entertaining hundreds of people! The trio has received many descriptions like “unbelievable,” “enthralling,” “entertainment for pedophiles,” “talented,” “shocking,” and “WTF?” The girls are backed by a killer band that combines speed metal/j-pop/electronica elements that make this group incredibly unique. Fans are enthralled by the group while new fans are won-over by these talented girls and the unique fusion between metal and J-Pop!
The trio is a sub unit of the idol group Sakura Gakuin. They were the second off-shoot unit to come from the group the Twinklestars. BABY METAL made their debut in April 2011 and have developed a following since then. You can check out their YouTube videos of their hit singles, “Doki Doki Morning,” “Li ne” (featured below live in Tokyo), and “Head Banger.”
