Crap day at work.
Laid down, put on my grados, cranked 1/44th of my 88-hour best of metal playlist.
Feel so much better now.

Babymetal | “Gimme Choco!”
Okay, so I find this all disgusting.
It is a violation of youth and innocence, AND a violation of metal!
Metal is anger. Aggression. If you’re that angry at such a young age, then something is REALLY WRONG, and it shouldn’t be celebrated on stage or for money.
If nothing is wrong, you’re being fake. Metal embodies a lot of things, but inauthenticity is not one of them.
This entire enterprise rots from its own malignant intrinsic antitheticality.
In a couple years, when the “twins” are in high school, or dropouts, and have lived a ~little~, then, MAYBE, this pop-n-death conjoining might work.
But for now, it’s just plain IMMORAL! I say that both ironically and not. I truly think Babymetal’s existence is, like, a destructive embodiment of social evils.
I do admire the choreography and editing a ton though (the “pushback” sequence especially, in the 2:00-2:20 breakdown… and the fistpumps after, I would not be surprised to learn these girls burn 18,000 calories per day).More discussion/arguing here: http://jrocknyc.tumblr.com/post/78210881010/babymetal-gimme-choco-okay-so-i-find-this#disqus_thread
Really digging the new Nightwish, first time in a decade!
Compare original singer Tarja’s operatic yuckiness in the chorus of “She is My Sin” http://youtu.be/v6AVawLh_sI?t=1m30s (@1:30)…
…to new singer Floor Jansen’s 2013 rendition: http://youtu.be/q-laA96ICw0?t=2m10s (@2:10)…
Floor be so much more emotive and listenable, so much less fakey-fakey!
