'Cutest Headbangers on Planet' Are Mixing ''Idol' Music and Metal'
Babymetal are a Japanese band that's fusing what cannot be fused - schoolgirl J-pop and hard-hitting death metal.

Consisting of three cute girls named Su-metal, Moametal and Yuimetal, the band is clearly something that can only come from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Chatting with Razor TV, the girls explained their distinctive approach to music, saying, "Babymetal is the collaboration between 'idol' music and heavy metal. We are a new genre which nobody has done before. We want to be the only one in the in the world. We use 'Baby' because we are newborn, a new genre."

The girls also admitted they didn't even know what metal was prior to joining the band, and neither have their parents. "We then started performing and listening to it," they added. "Then we wanted to create a new genre."

Asked about the way they dance to metal music, the girls confessed it's a bit of a difficult process, but also described metal dancing as "a good way to release stress." The band even patented their signature "fox" sign, check out the clip below to see what it represents.

Babymetal have been active since 2010, so far only releasing such singles as "Ijime, Dame, Zettai," "Megitsune" and "Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!!!!" The yet-untitled full-length debut is scheduled for February 26 release.
