What do you get when you mix pint-sized female rockers, a dash of deathcore, and a spoonful of kawaii? We’re not quite sure either, but we think it might be called “BABYMETAL”.
Sakura Gakuin is a Japanese pop idol group made up of 12 girls in their early teens. Several subgroups of Sakura Gakuin contributed songs to an album called “Sakura Gakuin 2010 Nendo ~message~“. One of these subgroups was BABYMETAL.
