    But everybody, the female sockpuppet members of the backing band of dudes that are actually Babymetal can dance averagely. TRVE ART.

    I know what it is, I'm seriously involved in that.

    I didn't know you found balding, greying Tokyo record executives so passionate. We're asking about the tangible perameters of it, not whether I like the riff on Gimme Chocolate.

    Riffs of which I'm sure aren't just lifted from some other band that the executives decided over sake had greater potential to strike a chord with the most amount of listeners.

    I wonder if you all have the same answers for the bands that you love, all the answers. And of absolutely all the bands. I want all the evidence.

    We've already given you evidence for one of ours, how about you nut up and do it for yours?

    I gave it too. How many bands are based on that? Thousands. But Infernus has no idea either, it's just talk.

    No. You showed us a generic cultural trapping plopped on their image like a wet fart with nothing to prove that they made the choice to do so. They aren't making their own artistic decisions, Infernus is, something you fail to understand. Also, cute of you to compare the conceptual originality of Gorgoroth to that of Babymetal. Find me one black metal band pre-Gorgoroth with that guitar tone or that spatial sense of musicality. I guarantee I can find you a dozen lazy "JUMPDAFUCK" 90's goatfucks with the musical tone of the Kami Band and hundreds of melodically identical J Pop acts.

    And what does it matter? After all, they were girls when they started. The decisions will be made later. Believe me, I do not care.

    It's also worth mentioning that Gorgoroth never worked with a major label until that blithering moron, Gaahl, felt like he needed to ruin the band.

    Yes, they were girls when they started. And as I've enumerated nearly a dozen times now, that's how young the Japanese pop idol industry starts them. They groom children like these from the ages of 9 and 10, sometimes younger to become pre-packaged pop sensations for Japan's record buying public. They did not start this band, the record company did. The decisions have already been made. For them. By elderly Japanese music moguls who, the last time they could headbang, they were doing it to carve out their caves during the fucking Jurassic era.

    Just as there are millions of black metal bands that sound identical to each other. Who else sounds like BM?

    I know, they didn't know anything about the heavy metal world, and again I tell you, what does it matter? I don't care.

    Let's see, the guitar tone is phoned in from 90's nu metal, the drumming is unoriginal blast beat craft, the melodies are quoting from more hacky J Pop groups than I care to name, the lyrics are about as inspired as Ernest Hemingway when he took his own life, etc.

    And to top it all off, you might think Gorgoroth absolutely stink, but at least they play THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS.

    It's kind of vital to their credibility.

    Singing and dancing while losing weight in each performance is not enough for you?

    They lose weight in each performance? I guess the silver lining is that they won't be around for too much longer.
