Oh, and I have something I wanted to brag about.
My beloved rock T-shirts!
I have even more but there’s just too many to show them all. ヽ(；▽；)ノ
I’m always wearing them at rehearsals and stuff!
People who also like rock: let’s have a show of hands!
I hope there are some out there reading this. (_ _).｡o♡
My favorite one is the Iron Maiden T-shirt in the bottom right!
Uwaaah. So cool!

She was most influenced by the 80’s stuff, too, so they actually have a lot in common. Priest, America, Scorpions, Mötley, Michael Schenker, Rainbow, etc. The guitarists she most admires are Paul Gilbert and Ritchie Blackmore.

Rikako, weeping at Budokan on March 3rd. But she isn’t sad because of Berryz’ indefinite hiatus. She’s sad because she’s missing KISS’s Dome concert.

For Maro, it’s all about Yngwie.
Henkka: Five replies. Five fucking replies. That’s how long it took until someone started arguing over what is or isn’t real metal. Dammit I miss being around fellow metalheads.
KISS is shit.
– Signed, Anyone with taste
What with all the thumbs down? I agree with you. Led Zep, Motley, ACDC, those guys can write and play seriously good stuff. But Kiss is just a burlesque show with noise.
As evidenced by their (dreadful) momoclo collaboration.
i agree. fuck KISS. also their band members are giant jerks who want to jail spotify and everything.
also isn’t slayer consider deathmetal??
Rikako is too awesome. And what’s all this hubbub about Uta being a gamer or something?
Rikako already headbangs – that girl has so much energy I’ve often worried her neck was going to snap in the middle of a performance.
How long do you reckon before she tries to crowdsurf?
That would be suicide. The Wotas would eat alive.
Crowdsurfing? I’m not so sure. Flinging herself right off the stage as a result of the sheer energy pent up in her tiny body? It’s only a matter of time.
If someone found a way to harness that energy, it could be used to supply electricity to most of Tokyo.
And so much safer than Fukushima!
So that’s why she bought these Sony MDR headphones that leak sound a few days ago.
Please spread the gospel of metal…
Angerme is real metal.
Now, play Dream Theater
i wonder if seh like BabyMetal…
Babymetal has some metal-ish instrumentals, but everything else isn’t metal at all lol.
Yeah, they’re mostly just run of the mill jpop but with heavy instruments. I’d say most H!P songs, from a composition perspective at least, are much closer to metal than stuff like Babymetal. I mean stuff like Taiki Bansei or The Future, if you took those songs and stuck them in the middle of some power metal band’s setlist, they wouldn’t sound at all out of place. Probably why I ended up listening to H!P so much.
So how many replies before WE argue about what is and what isn’t Metal?
From a composition perspective babymetal’s song are actually really good metal songs, wether or not you like all the “gimmmicks” around it.
The gimmicks make it impossible to take them seriously. I gave them a fair listen, but found it too damn cheesy and cliched that it’s ever so slightly embarrassing.
Babymetal songs are using metal sounds but it’s still in Jpop format. Therefore, NOT METAL
Did you listen to anything other than Doki Doki Morning? Megitsune for example is pretty metal, in my opinion.
Or Akatsuki. Or a bunch of other songs.
That is clearly either too early for it’s time or just too damn messy :p
I don’t have any problem with anyone not liking it as it’s clearly really particular.
I do personally love this strange combination and find it quite refreshing too see all those metal cliché and idol antics at the same.
At the other anonymous poster: What’s a “Jpop format ?” for a song ? i’m curious. Especially regarding the VERY VERY wide range of songs in babymetal album, with each song almost unique in it’s own (and some better than others)
Hmm, interest piqued. Is it worth going to an event for though?
How could a group who’s name means “Angel’s Tears” and releases a song called “A Maiden’s Counterattack” not be metal?
I would like to see ANGERME cover Bohemian Rhapsody.
Songs I would like Angerme to cover:
– Crystal Mountain
– Metroplis Pt 1
– To Thou Who Dwellest in the Night
I bet Dawa can do a good growl.
How about this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF-MkLZpbiM
She even does the horns better than her dad. Dammit, dad, tuck your thumbs in.
Well, Rikako said “rock shirts” – she knows her stuff! No reason to argue if it’s rock or metal :O
>218- “Priest, America, Scorpions, Mötley, Michael Schenker, Rainbow”
America? All these years I was a metalhead and didn’t even know it!
Just gotta give the Japanese wota’s a big applause for using a Graspop promotion cause it’s in my country (woop woop)
Really appreciated to her dad that influenced her. Beside of her beauty, Rikako is pretty boy-ish i think, not too often show her girly side like Maro or Ayacho, even compare to Kudo.
I want shirts too
but i am not rich enough
You’ll just have to keep going everywhere shirtless then.
It’s tough being poor. I’m glad I have a few shirts at least.
