    The music itself no, but the externalities of the music, i.e. say in creative choice or artistic mission, yes, those are most certainly compatible with evidentiary substantiation. Something you refuse to provide for the nth time.

    Everything you ask revolves around a word: Kitsune, it's part of the concept behind it, it comes from the ancient Japanese folklore, there are quite good books about it, which I study before know about BM.

    How does a rich history of mythology and folklore being reduced to, yet again, a glorified idol group with a wasted backing band that writes "metal" that is shallow and empty make Babymetal any more palatable?

    I know what kitsune is. And a band basing its style there? Not new or original in any way. That's still not evidence of anything other than the record company choosing a generic marketing image.

    Gorgoroth is the ancient Northern European deity of chocolate-sharing and fairy dancing.

    If by "killer song", you mean that it makes everyone with good taste in a 15 mile radius want to give themselves 12-gauge lobotomy, then it is.

    "100,000% more original" So original, they don't write, compose, or play, and their art is dictated to them by suited stiffs in Tokyo. Get real.

    Gorgoroth is based on deistic Satanism, something you can find our if you watch just about any given interview with founding guitarist and chief songwriter Infernus. They also use touches of existentialism as evidenced by their consistent use of Nietzschean phrases in their lyrics. Their name is taken from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

    I waste my time here, asking for evidence of something that doesn't need it. Music has nothing to do with that. Nor artistic mission nor nothing. Crimes need evidence, not something that it has to do with passion.
