Onmyouza is great for a number of reasons. They shred in traditional Japanese garb, about historical japanese battles, and all the of the members’ names are cat puns. You can’t fucking beat that.
This is Hevisaurus. Dinosaur metal for kids. Let me just repeat that: DINOSAUR METAL FOR KIDS. Everything is cooler in the fjords.
POLKA METAL. I like how it almost weirdly comes out sounding like ska. There’s a whole fucking genre of this stuff though.
Last but not least, behold: Babymetal. This started when this girl was about to age out of an idol group. She also grew up loving metal and decided to mix the two and then all this happened and now she gets to keep making (imo way more interesting) music. I can’t believe this works as well as it does. I wish I was half as cool at that age.
