Babymetal has transformed the heavy metal music landscape with their unique concept of J-pop and heavy metal fusion. This all-female Japanese band effortlessly infects you with their charismatic energy, powerful vocals, and captivating dance routines. Their work is highly acclaimed not just in Japan but also with international music critics. They were described as “a magical, leather-clad, fire-breathing, sonic unicorn” by Daily Dot and it’s not surprising.
While Babymetal has unreal cuteness, Dethklok is indeed literally “unreal”. Dethklok is Brendon Small’s brainchild, a virtual death metal band which quickly became a cult hit followed by a tour in 2007. They’re widely known for their satirical and parodic lyrical themes. The unique blend of humor and hard-hitting metal music is nothing short of amazing. Proof of that is their two real-life collections of tunes from the show (The Dethalbum and Dethalbum II) reaching a new ground when they became the highest-charting death metal albums of all time which brought a whole new audience to the genre.
Babymetal and Dethklok take the norm, chew it, and spit it out. Their biggest similarity is innovation and keeping the audience craving for more. With their return from hiatus, they also dropped some exciting announcements. Babymetal reveals THE OTHER ONE restoration project that features the virtual world called METALVERSE. With 10 songs with their own separate themes and parallel worlds, Babymetal is blessing us with a mature and arguably even better kawaii metal voice.
Meanwhile Dethklok is also announcing the long-awaited return of Adult Swim’s favorite heavy metal adventure, Metalocalypse. The full-length original film isn’t the only surprise as a companion soundtrack and Dethalbum IV will also be arriving this 2023.
