Could be given a chance to headline next year and they'd smash it! Seen them 3 times and they are just amazing live :D

Controversial indeed, but I'd be OK with this.

The biggest issue for me would be lack of material to fill a full set with.

But I'm guessing there will be other objections.

No. A gimmick band that would work at Download, but IMHO would be wrong for Bloodstock. Currently riding high, but they'll be forgotten about in a couple of years.

It's just Japanese teenage girl pop sung over heavy "br00tal" music. Interesting for about two minutes. Think Meshuggah crossed with an Anime cartoon.

Sounds like the gimmicky atrocity i thought it might be.
People asking for Babymetal over Manowar (for example) really need putting down.

BabyMetal are headlining Wembley arena next year so don't think they'll be forgotten about anytime soon! I'm hoping they get some new material made soon so they'll be about to play a decent long set.

Which just goes to show what a bunch of falsies a lot of the metal community are.
EDIT:Shit-there was probably no need for that above comment-i think Killing-Time has claimed yet another victim of his trolling!.In retrospect i should have put "some of" instead of "a lot of". :D

It is a gimmick band.

But it is a metal band. It is. Well kinda. It's dynamic and bombast are in the right place. The drama of the songs, for what it's worth, is the key concern creatively. So as apposed to, say, BMTH whose concern is more orientated around the self, or indeed the scene. This gimmick band have the of traits of the true, in some ways at least.

But the songs are nicely written. The band (of hired - high quality - guns) play well live. The lead singer is very good. The sound is relatively original (nod to blood stained child Et al).... And I like them.
