A Look at Idol Metal and Idol Rock, Other Than BABYMETAL Part Two

In part one we looked at Idol Metal groups other than BABYMETAL, for part two we shall look at Idol groups that follow more rock influences, with a touch of metal and Idol pop.

PASSCODE
passcode 2
PASSCODE adds all elements of Idol, metal and rock to create an interesting mix that fits perfectly with Idol metal or Idol hard rock, while having ballads that reflect their Idol pop side.



30POSSE

NEW 30POSSE
30POSSE is an Idol group that still carries a lot of Idol pop inside them. When you attend one of their lives it starts off with a more traditional Idol pop feeling and within ten minutes has evolved into a rock show.

Tsubasa Fly first two singles have been up tempo rock tracks .Unforgettable Days is currently my favorite Idol rock track.

SHIZUKAZE & KIZUNA

shizukaze and kizuna

The oldest of all Idol Rock groups having made their debut in 2009, they are known for having a live band at big venue lives, spitting water on fans and walking across the shoulders of fans. The group is creative and fan-friendly as they enter the crowd many times during their concerts.
SHIZUKAZE & KIZUNA while having a rock influence they hold on to some Idol pop influences. They are also known for having some of the best shirts for sale and the loudest and intense fans in the genre.



With live band

There are also groups that are not 100% Idol rock or Idol metal that have some songs influenced by this new fusion genre, two such groups are
NATO*Kan

natokan

Fukuoka Kanbe Girls

FUKUOKA KANBE GIRLS

While Nato*Kan and FKG , are mostly pop Idols they do show that the fusion of Idol pop with metal and rock is not limited to 100% Idol rock or Idol metal groups and reflects the changing face of Idol genre.

The groups that I have presented in these two parts are not all of the Idol metal or Idol hard rock groups, there is many more with new groups debuting every month across Japan. Nor is  Nato*Kan and FKG  the only  pop Idols that are starting to show more of a  rock side, no this is only the beginning of the story.

This is a story that has many chapters yet to be told.
