Carcass Frontman Defends Babymetal

(TeamRock Radio) Carcass frontman Jeff Walker has defended Japanese trio Babymetal, saying they are bringing fun and entertainment back to music. Both groups played Sonisphere last month and when Walker was asked about his best festival moment, he says: "My highlight was getting my picture taken with Babymetal."

The all-girl group have attracted criticism for being a gimmick because of their choreographed dance routines and mixture of J-pop and metal, but when asked by Nuclear Blast what he thought about Babymetal, Walker says: "I'm starting to warm to the idea of what they're doing. It's actually fun - like Ghost.

"Some people get very reactionary about bands like Ghost or Babymetal, but it puts a smile on people's faces. That's what music's about - enjoying it and not being so serious." more on this story
