I'll never really understand the whole "X killed metal" or "X is ruining metal" thing. I feel like styles of music where there's a strong emphasis on an underground scene like metal, there's no one thing that can "kill it". If you know where to look for quality, you will always have quality. It's pretty easy in this day and age where there's a market for literally every style of music on the internet.

That being said, I think this whole Babymetal thing sucks and I honestly can't see this getting kids into metal. I think it's more likely for a kid to get into metal by watching that episode of SpongeBob with that Pantera song.

Ah yes, Death Rattle. I remember watching that when it premiered and nearly shitting my pants. Seeing my nieces rocking out to Pantera was pretty damn cool.

I only found a clip of Hibernation Week that's sped up twenty-five percent but it's pretty fucking wild. "Hay in a Needlestack". That's genius.

Isn't the hype for this already dying down? I remember like a month ago Babymetal made its rounds on Facebook like a typical viral thing and I haven't really heard anyone mention it since, except on here.

I'm just going to say it because I've wanted to for the last week; is everything a fucking video game over there?
