Cute Metal? WTF??
« on: July 11, 2014, 05:09:28 PM »
I'd heard about these three from a friend a while ago when they opened for an Iron Maiden concert he went to, at the time I thought he was either pissed or having a laugh. I know Japanese culture can seem a little strange to the western world but cute metal is just......no. I made the mistake of giving in to curiosity and having a look on youtube.....................my ears are still bleeding. Somehow they've even been able to open for some of the biggest name bands in the genre like Iron Maiden and Metallica.  noooo:

I have to admit part of me would love to see the faces of the audience who've come in for a night of angry heavy rock with screaming bass and howling guitars and find themselves enduring three happy japanese teenagers before they can see the act they have paid for  lol:

If anyone here fancies themselves as a curious masochist.....

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
