Babymetal backing band releases album

2017-04-26 by DatsNotDaMetulz | 25 Comments
Mikio Fujioka, BOH and Yuya Maeta, best known as 3 of the more consistent members of Babymetal's backing Kami Band at live shows, have now released a demo of their own, under the name of Kari-Band (meaning Temporary Band, a play on their Japanese name with Babymetal). The demo, Kari Ongen - Demo -, can be purchased physically via Amazon Japan or digitally via iTunes, or be streamed on Spotify. As opposed to Babymetal's self styled "kawaii metal", the music on Kari-Band's first effort is primarily jazz fusion.

I was going to shit on them for cash-grabbing with a demo, but read that it's jazz fusion and was surprised. Still probably won't check it though lol.

Kari-band means "Band for rent". Cheap of them to sell a freaking demo, couldn't they find a label to produce an EP? It's not like they don't know anyone.

I don't think the record labels take Babymetal too seriously.

I've always found the babymetal girls to be creepy. It feels like they're forced to put on the outfits and the whole show. Almost feel sorry for them.

Guess it's that over excited behaviour, and that weird Japanese obsession with being "cute." 14 year old girls behaving like that, I think it's weird.

Maybe it's because I live here that I got desensetized about it, but yeah I found their behaviour pretty normal. Also Omair, if you find them weird you would freak out with the underground idol scene. In the west it would be a straight up pedophile convention.

"pretty sure those girls are diehard metalheads"
I think it was Yui who said they got into Metallica and Bring Me the Horizon once the idea of metal was pitched to them, for what it's worth

Yeah, they're into Metal now, but they have stated that before this band, they were not.

Kami Band has always garnered respect even beyond BabyMetal, so this is cool to see.
