MOAMETAL (Kikuchi Moa) - SUUMETAL (Nakamoto Suzuka) - YUIMETAL (Mizuno Yui)


Babymetal is a sub unit of the idol group Sakura Gakuin. They are the second sub unit to debut from the group, following Twinklestars. Their concept is a fusion of idol pop and metal. The group first appeared on Sakura Gakuin's debut album Sakura Gakuin 2010 Nendo ~message~ in April 2011, performing the track "Do・Ki・Do・Ki☆MORNING". In October 2011 they released a DVD containing the music video for the song.

I think the gist of it is: a new CD single release with the fusion of some group called "Kiba of Akiba" and of course Baby Metal.

Wow, "now for something completely different!"  I haven't seen much from Sakura Gakuin till now, but this unit sure has my attention.  I'm not usually that into metal but this is metal with a difference.  They are kinda cute but nasty as well.  A bit like Junko Mizuno (http://www.mizuno-junko.com/) I s'pose.  Interesting to see what success they have in longer term - but they already been going since 2010?  Babymetal, I mean?

Tower Records in Shibuya, Tokyo:

(http://uppix.com/f-IMG_07015002ec5c001068f1.jpg)

I thought BABYMETAL would be an obscure unit, but I was wrong. They had big displays in pretty much every record (and idol) store I walked into. Posters, TV with the PV playing and a station where you could listen to their singles. The TV screen on the outside of Tower records also had Headbanger! on rotation at full blast! I definitely did not expect this kind of exposure for a unit like this. Japan is awesome.  :lol:

Correct! Excellent review  :thumbup

Quote
t was announced then that scarlet knight SU-METAL had stood up to save those fallen two from the dark side. She appeared on stage and performed new solo song. Her high singing voice sounded so good accompanied by the beautiful melody of the piano, speedy sounds of the guitar in the melodic speed metal song. Everyone at the venue was intoxicated with her voice. The audience sent her huge applauses when she left the stage.

This. Best performance ever. Seriously. I can't wait to have this on CD (or Blu-Ray please).

Also, lmao at MoaMetal's English phrase. Textbook English  :lol:

^Oh wow, it sounds like they actually re-recorded the guitars on the intro solo! It sounds more lively than when they used Ijime in that old 'First Heavy Metal" promo video.  :thumbup It's attention to details like that makes them a pro group with quality releases.

Random thoughts:

- I think I heard Maliciel yelling Suuchan in the beginning :V
- I read they performed the new single too, but I guess they cut it from the video so people are more likely to pre-order the single.
- Crowd is a lot bigger than I expected  :thumbup
- Definitely more idol fans than metal fans, which is to be expected at a convention like this. I think there were more glow sticks than at the Shibuya lives.
- That Headbanger perf was pretty intense  XD
- The transition from "Singaporu~" to that metal part was funny.
- Translated VTRs are a nice touch, but in the video they didn't show any of the really funny ones they did with their own one man live.

I had to be directed to this thread as I didn't have a clue who Sakura Gakuin were and was disappointed there was no BABYMETAL thread here...



As for the new song, it's a lot more metal and less J-pop than their previous ones. And the video is less striking too....

I wonder what is on all three types.

The crowd has spoken. BABYMETAL has its own thread. It almost cut the Sakura Gakuin thread in half, but at least this way the Science Club and Sakura Gakuin's own releases won't be instantly buried under BABYMETAL postings. I added some links in the opening post for easier reference and to help new fans, etc.

I had to be directed to this thread as I didn't have a clue who Sakura Gakuin were and was disappointed there was no BABYMETAL thread here...

It's funny because I guess these 'club' units are meant to get people interested in Sakura Gakuin, but BABYMETAL doesn't have that effect. People like BABYMETAL for their music/style and they're not a gateway to Sakura Gakuin. I guess in that way it sorta back-fired on the management, haha.


As far as the new PV goes: hilarious. I literally laughed out loud. I can see what they were going for, but it just makes me lol.
Highlights were the buried V's going up in flames and of course the YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL guitar solos  :rofl: :rofl: They even tapped from above which is what Dragonforce and some other flashy guitarists sometimes do. Priceless.  :lol:

word I wonder if they are going to separate the group from regular Sakura Gakuin so they can continue because honestly is going very good and guess would be very shocking if the producer just let her go because of that Sakura Gakuin rule... i wonder
Title: Re: (Group) BABYMETAL
Post by: SomethingWild on November 30, 2012, 10:48:10 AM
What is the Sakura Gakuin rule?  :panic:

Yeah, Babymetal without Suumetal is not gonna happen. The fans wouldn't stand for it. if they replace her, the group will fade to obscurity.

Let's compare SG and BM:
Sakura Gakuin - Wonderful Journey: 5,649
BABYMETAL - Headbanger!!: 4,144

It's highly likely that Ijime, Dame, Zettai will sell more than Headbanger. The question is if they will outsell Sakura Gakuin as well  XD
Either way, with sales like these they aren't gonna kick Suumetal out of BM.

2. BABYMETAL DEATH

This song is the intro song for the concerts. It's basically fast guitars and then the girls come up saying "YUIMETAL DESU" etc. as form of introduction. I hope they turned it into a proper song for this release.

3. Ijime, Dame Zettai -Nemesis ver.-

Nemesis is a pretty famous song by Arch Enemy, I hope it's related  XD

2. Catch Me If You Can

This is new! I guess this won't be Suumetal's solo song, because that's a-side material. It's not the Yui/Moa rap song either, so I'm looking forward hearing it.

The covers are pretty awesome. The IDZ types are badass and the regular is lol-worthy in a Rhapsody (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhapsody_of_Fire) kind of way  XD

Hmm, the CD tracklistings look dubious then with an intro song. Shame the IDZ types don't have different CD tracklistings. At 1,800 yen each they are expensive as well!

I'm also wondering if the Type D DVD liveclip is just this old youtube vid:

Yeah, first thing I checked when I saw the setlist was the date and venue and it all matched.
It may be different footage, but it has to be from that performance...
Too bad because it's pretty old by now and we've all seen it a thousand times already.
At least the Headbanger/Uki Uki performance is more recent and new.

I, D, Z: LEGEND “D” SU-METAL Birthday at Akasaka BLITZ review:

Quote
Then they covered “White Love” by SPEED which was a huge hit in the times SU-METAL was born. The song had been arranged as “Angel Of Death ver.”

Quote
The last song was the cover of classis song “Tsubasa wo Kudasai –Fire-“, which was a surprising choice for them. SU-METAL’s clear and vibrating voice seemed to purify the place. She slowly climbed up the stairways set on the stage and spread her hands up to the huge cross placed on the back of the stage. At the moment 4 pillars of fire blew up on stage. The stage was closed when the white cloth fell on them as though covering the stage.

They're up against BiS and Dorothy Little Happy, among others:

NINKI ratings for the week of 7/1~13/1/2012

01 88.70 Yamada Ryosuke - Mystery Virgin
02 57.30 Yuzu - REASON
03 50.90 Iwasa Misaki - Moshimo Watashi ga Sora ni Sundeitara
04 22.10 FUDANJUKU - Jinsei Wahaha!
05 19.90 Taketatsu Ayana - Jiku Tours
06 18.00 Kitamura Eri - Miracle Gliders
07 17.30 Sakamoto Shintaro - Matomo ga Wakaranai
08 16.70 BiS to Dorothy Little Happy - GET YOU
09 16.30 BABYMETAL - Ijime, Dame, Zettai
10 15.40 Dohatsuten - Nihon Retto Wasshoi Keikaku

Their personal best is a weekly #20 with 4,144 copies sold.
Sakura Gakuin's best is 5,649 so it'd be epic if they can outsell the mothership.


I also realized a lot of their 'remixed' songs are titled after famous metal songs:
- White Love (Angel Of Death ver.) --> Slayer song
- Over The Future (Rising Force ver.) --> Yngwie Malmsteen song
- Ijime, Dame Zettai (Nemesis ver.) --> Arch Enemy song

I always wonder what would happen to BABYMETAL when Suzuka graduated next year. Because I love this unit and I can't imagine BABYMETAL without Suzuka.
word I wonder if they are going to separate the group from regular Sakura Gakuin so they can continue because honestly is going very good and guess would be very shocking if the producer just let her go because of that Sakura Gakuin rule... i wonder
There's a freaking "graduate by the age of 16" rule or something in Sakura Gakuen!? :panic:
That doesn't make sense at all! Imo girl idols are at their prime around age 20 (personal observation, at least in the 48/46 families)! Why graduate waaaaay before that & before one can actually make some proper profit?!

Apology, I should first introduce myself (not really necessary I guess, I know many of you guys. :lol:)
I just stumble upon this thread right now, & saw the mv of Ijime, Dame, Zettai elsewhere not too long ago. I was rather impressed & interested by the mv, & personally I thought it would do really well since it is gaining so much view compare to their older videos (204,370 views already! This compare to 40,000 & less views of their other video.) So I was really surprised their NINKI Ranking is that low, but I guess their previous single is lower than. :nervous

What on earth is the Nogizaka fan doing here? Care to guess? :lol:
The answer is below in white, highlight to see it!
Sumetal's name is Nakamoto Suzuka (中元すず香). There's a member in Nogizaka with the name of Nakamoto Himeka (中元日芽香). See the connection? They are sisters! Himeka is the elder one, Suzuka is the younger one (funny how Himeka is going for the cute chara, while Suzuka the cool one lol). Nogizaka is gonna go for a second generation btw, something I am not happy to see. However, if that silly rule of Sakura Gakuen really do exist, than I would be more than happy to see the sisters be united in the same group!

Please note that their official YT channel is relatively new and they re-uploaded all their other videos. Their old clips were watched many, many times as well.

One of the coupling songs:

BABYMETAL - Catch me if you can (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5OntdZxNrE#)

Fear Factory style riffs + Momoclo style vocals + typical Jpop chorus + some drum action + punk riffage.

I'm not as blown away by it as their other songs. I don't really like the guitar tone and style in this one as much. Aw well.

Cross quoting:

Yes, this means Suzuka will be graduating from Sakura Gakuin... as expected.

I wonder if they are now going to completely separate Babymetal from SG. Somehow with BM having had their major debut, this seems pretty likely to me.

As far as BABYMETAL's future is concerned I see three scenarios:

1. They could let Babymetal continue to exist despite graduating Su out of Sakura Gakuin. IDZ will probably even break SG's sale record, so killing of BABYMETAL would be stupid. Besides, you can't kill of a group that quickly after a major label debut.

2. However, the IDZ Legend concerts will soon be complete. Actually, that will be on February 1st which is several weeks before Su's graduation from SG. Furthermore, the girls are getting older. So if they were to end Babymetal some time this year it would truly make them a legendary group. It fits their image, since everything has been about "legends." How long can you keep a group like this interesting and groundbreaking?

3. Someone will Replace Su, but I highly doubt this will happen. She's the main vocalist and I don't think the fans would like it either.

(4. Su joins Nogizaka46 to team up with her sister, since being in BABYMETAL isn't a full time job.)

Remember all that discussion about SUU-METAL graduating from Sakura Gakuin and the effect that would have on BABYMETAL?

Well, the official site has a news article up stating that even after Suzuka's graduation from Sakura Gakuin, BABYMETAL would carry on as an "extra-curricular activity". (However, maybe only for a limited about of time?)

http://www.sakuragakuin.jp/news/ (http://www.sakuragakuin.jp/news/)

There's an English article here: http://www.tokyohive.com/2013/02/babymetal-to-continue-their-activities-after-su-metals-graduation-from-sakura-gakuin/ (http://www.tokyohive.com/2013/02/babymetal-to-continue-their-activities-after-su-metals-graduation-from-sakura-gakuin/)

This says that they performed 11 songs at their I、D、Z~LEGEND ‘Z’” at Zepp Tokyo concert on Feb 1st, and will hold a concert at NHK Hall on June 30th.

Anybody have the setlist for the  I、D、Z~LEGEND ‘Z’” at Zepp Tokyo concert on Feb 1st?

Someone upped a bunch of radio appearances, during one of which the girls list their recommended metal song:

YUIMETAL: Cannibal Corpse - Make Them Suffer https://youtu.be/D5Hv0tsvpyU (https://youtu.be/D5Hv0tsvpyU)
MOAMETAL: Behemoth - Demigod https://youtu.be/8o7SamPkmeg (https://youtu.be/8o7SamPkmeg)
SU-METAL: Arch Enemy - We Will Rise https://youtu.be/R4Dn02bR4pg (https://youtu.be/R4Dn02bR4pg)

 :lol:  :twothumbs

They also mentioned singing along with Sexmachine Guns - Mikan no Uta:

I was there! I was there!  :twothumbs Didn't even notice any cameras haha.

I hope they'll either use the footage with the live band (first time ever) and/or the solo Suumetal song, because that was beyond epic and I haven't heard it again anywhere since.

Still hoping for a proper full length concert release though... It's a waste to cut down all these concerts to nine minute clips as bonus dvds for the singles.

BABYMETAL to release new single in June
by ustar on April 15, 2013 at 5:52 pm

(http://i.imgur.com/HzfgLSj.jpg)

It’s been revealed that BABYMETAL’s new single, “Megitsune“, will be released on June 19.

The title track is a festive number that incorporates traditional Japanese instruments into a hard metal sound. It has the theme, “women are actresses since the moment they are born,” and it will also include an enka ballad style throughout the song.

The single will be available for purchase in 4 different types: Limited “Ki” Edition, Limited “Tsu” Edition, Limited “Ne” Edition, and a Regular Edition. The limited editions will each come with a digest of lives that were held from last year to this year.

BABYMETAL has also added a new date to their upcoming tour, ‘BABYMETAL DEATH MATCH TOUR 2013 -Go-gatsu Kakumei-‘, which will start in May. They have added an evening performance for May 18 at Zepp DiverCity TOKYO. Ticket pre-reservations will be held on their official website until April 18.

Onedari Daisakusen

Oh snap, IIRC this is Moa and Yui's rap song  :nervous :nervous :nervous

Legend says Moa and Yui turned to the dark side and became BLACK Metal. They sing stuff like  “I love you, Daddy” and “Please buy me some presents, please, please”  :lol: It's like "CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI, CHOUDAI!"  :lol:

Little disappointed by the song distribution on the DVDs, but I guess it makes sense.

The Suumetal solo song I was raving on about was aimed at bringing Mao and Yui back from the dark side... so hopefully her solo song will be on the next single. It's been so long I can't even remember how it goes, but it was SO GOOD.

i can watch it a million more times much better than youtube version.Ripped all three so dont have to use the disc.they be worn out in no time

 
I'm also wondering if the Type D DVD liveclip is just this old youtube vid

Yeah, first thing I checked when I saw the setlist was the date and venue and it all matched.
It may be different footage, but it has to be from that performance...
Too bad because it's pretty old by now and we've all seen it a thousand times already.
At least the Headbanger/Uki Uki performance is more recent and new.

That Akatsuki song may very well be the Suumetal solo song I've been raving on about.
It would make sense since the MoaYui rap song is one coupling song, so the Suumetal song should be the coupling song on the other edition.

I AM EXCITE.

Anybody found the Type A and Type B DVDs yet?

The Legend Z concert footage on the Type C was pretty epic. Loved the SU-METAL entrance on the cross, very dramatic  :lol:

It's doing pretty well in the charts with a nice 6K boost yesterday (probably thanks to the special versions sold at the live yesterday).
It should be interesting to see if they can break their 17K record.

This is my first time seeing BABYMETAL doing a headlining show and it’s pretty crazy. They did LOVE Machine and Chokotto LOVE with metalcore + dubstep arrangements and there were several hundred people headbanging at the floor. And now there’s a sudden 10-minute intermission. The venue is getting noisy. What the heck is going on?!

BABYMETAL is celebrating some holy birthdays today, so YUIMETAL sang Chokotto LOVE (released in November 1999) and MOAMETAL sang LOVE Machine (released in September 1999)! As expected of the hit songs, everyone was fired up. Now there’s an intermission.

ひな @amsfish
I didn’t expect to hear Pucchimoni’s Chokotto LOVE or Momusu’s LOVE Machine at a BABYMETAL show. It was crazy! ( ^ω^ )

At BABYMETAL’s show. There’s a 10-minute intermission. YUIMETAL sang Chokotto LOVE and MOAMETAL sang LOVE Machine. As a representative of H!P, I took the initiative in getting the wota chants going. (laughs)

The IDZ Blu-ray is out today!

(http://picroda.jphip.com/japanese/jphip16846.jpg)


I still haven't ordered it...
- Poor value for money. 180 minutes on one disc. Whereas Mizuki Nana offers 360 minutes on two discs for the same price.
- A lot of these concerts are with the instrumental track, whereas their next concert release will probably future the live band tour.

Then again, this is a super awesome document and I'll probably watch it more often than any other concert  :lol:

edit:

Seems the DVD-Box is limited to 1500 copies, which is why we haven't seen it up for pre-order.
Prices on auction are already through the roof :nervous

BABYMETAL APOCALYPSE

(http://uppix.com/f-BZkIjPrCMAAOIQC_528df42a00149eba.jpg)

Release date:2013年12月21日
Price:¥3,500

http://baw.babymetal.jp/ (http://baw.babymetal.jp/)


Anybody know what this is?
The site mentions a binder, first volume and access code included for special web content...

There is a vid on the site too, I think they explain the 10 perks of being a member.
Some of them apply to their live events and special goods.

Ah, the BABYMETAL APOCALYPSE Website will be up until 31 Dec 2014.
So basically it's a one year subscription to their original web content with some added bonuses?

edit:

Just read the FAQ. Foreigners are screwed:
- You can only buy it at asmart through a deputy service ($$$)
- You can't make use of some of the benefits as they apply to live events and such.

So yeah, too bad. I was considering signing up, but this way it's just not worth it. Basically, we pay more and get less.

Actually, that would mean track #11 has to be Kimi to Anime ga Mitai. If that's true we'll only get two new songs.
If I may nitpick some more, the order of the songs doesn't make sense either based on the story told in the Legends.
As it stands it's just a best of album, which isn't very exciting.

Personally I would have liked to see either more new songs and/or some of the remixes and covers they performed:

- White Love -Angel Of Death ver.-
- Over The Future -Rising Force ver.-
- Headbanger!! -Night of 15 mix-
- Tsubasa o Kudasai -hono ver-
- Ijime, Dame, Zettai -Nemesis ver.-
- Iine -Vega mix-
- Didn't they cover some H!P songs as well?


On the other hand, 13 awesome songs for 2000 yen... Can't complain about that really.  XD

Quote
Not sure if the listed songs will be live songs or the music videos...

Fairly sure the first 5 are the actual PVs and then there is a short live clip from Summer Sonic.

Not sure if this performance has already
Been posted above.

If so, my apologies, I have a very poor Internet connection, so sometimes I cannot watch too
Many videos as they take so long to download.

Anyway, Suzuka Nakamoto, AKA Su-metal, does a superb job
On this cover of SPEED's 'White Love', a truly beloved song
In Japan and beyond.

All propers and shout out to Suzuka chan and the musical director for keeping
true to the original power and beauty of White Love, yet still
Giving it that Babymetal flavor!

BABYMETAL EUROPEAN TOUR announced at the end of the Budokan live!

No details yet, but reports state:

Quote
The final VTR "say goodbye to japan!" & showed their coffins fly to Europe

Quote
【速報】BABYMETAL、LEGEND“Y”YUIMETAL聖誕祭 in EUROPE・LEGEND“M”MOAMETAL聖誕祭 in EUROPE、開催決定!!!

Moametal's bday is June 20th and Yuimetal's bday is July 4th. If their concerts are called Seitansai it has to be during that time.

One major even going on during that time is the Japan Expo in Paris, so that seems highly likely.

News is a few weeks old but BABYMETAL will be playing in the UK!

...but a metal festival:

(http://s12.postimg.org/be0iksvk9/9th_April_900.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/be0iksvk9/)

July 6th, Sonicsphere Festival.

Kinda weird, this is a proper metal festival, I mean, Iron Maiden and Metallica are the headliners... I wonder how that kindof crowd will react towards BABYMETAL?

And that, plus cost + distance kinda rules out me going. If it was their own concert in London I would travel down... but not to a camping metal festival that costs over £200 or £85 for a day ticket. I would probably enjoy the whole festival but don't really want to go to that...

I doubt they will play another date in the UK, and so maybe their other European date will still be Japan Expo.

^ I do wonder about Babymetal appearing at
An actual Metal festival......

Here is a story that recently appeared
on the Japan Today site, written by  Preston Phro:

It’s been less than a year since we interviewed BABYMETAL and prophesied their coming domination of the globe, and in that time they’ve released a new, full-length album, racked up over five million views on one video alone, and made plans to invade England at Sonisphere Festival UK.......

I guess this means we are getting a live band for the tour, not pre-recorded music, woo!  :twothumbs

Looks like a pretty good world tour now (although I don't really like the idea of them supporting Lady Gaga...)

So, I went to see BABYMETAL live at The Forum, London, last Monday, and it was FUCKING EPIC  :rockon:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/japanese/jphip24924.jpg)

I managed to meet up with a bunch of people from twitter (and failed to meet up with some more) and, strangely, we started queuing up two hours before the gig, as one of us got a phonecall which said the queue was massive... they weren't lying...

London BABYMETAL queue (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ThauN-FK0s#ws)

This was partly because there was no support and BABYMETAL would be straight on at 8 after doors opened at 7. Enough time for a couple of drinks in the venue, and we got ourselves a nice place at the centre front. The crowd was mostly metalheads, with a few girls dressed in what seemed like anime cosplay/loligoth, and one guy in a pikachu onesie... It was very metal crowd rather than idol crowd. And a whole bunch of normal guys as well. There were about a dozen people with lightsticks, and a few in fox masks, and a couple dressed as the kami-band. And well, loads in BABYMETAL t-shirts.

The show was epic, so so epic. Everyone had fox horns up from the start and carried on till the end. There was a circle pit going the whole show. The front was rammed. Everyone just seemed to be having fun. It was one of the most fun gigs I've been to. The sound wasn't great - you could hardly hear the vocals over the music, and the crowd singing along/responding, and you could hardly see the short girls over the crowd and their arms, but that all didn't matter, it was just really really good fun.

One of my fave bits was when the whole circle pit went down on the knees and started bowing along to Headbanger.

Jijipress have a nice digest vid at:

BABYMETALにロンドンが熱狂 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvkIyYVwNC4#ws)

The whole thing was livestreamed in cinemas in Japan and Taiwan and a couple of the pro-shots have leaked: http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?app=xbt&CODE=details&torrent=74637 (http://www.hello-online.org/index.php?app=xbt&CODE=details&torrent=74637)

But mostly there's loads of fanvids on youtube: I'm just gonna link the search: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=london+babymetal&page=&utm_source=opensearch (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=london+babymetal&page=&utm_source=opensearch)

There's also an audio bootleg up on jpopsuki.

English Translation Lyrics

I couldn’t even see that dream
Alone in the verge of light and darkness

The one who gets hurt is not me alone
But also you who keep watching
Not having the confidence (don’t lose),
I keep on hiding (I don’t want to be inferior!)
I’m saying goodbye to me who were like that yesterday

Bullying (no!) bullying (no!)
That’s not cool (No! No!)
Getting hurt, hurting others,
Getting covered in wounds

Fox (stop!), fox (stop!),
Surely you will fly
Your pains, your sadness,
Unleash them all
Because I will protect you

In a night when I feel like crying but unable to show my tears
I'm alone in a room deep within my heart
The one who hurt me is not just someone else
It’s a friend who pretended not to notice
Not being able to (nothing) say anything (say nothing), I gave up
I'm saying goodbye to me who were like that yesterday

Bullying (no!) bullying (no!)
That’s not cool (No! No!)
Getting hurt, hurting others,
Getting covered in wounds

Fox (stop!), fox (stop!),
Surely you will fly
Your pains, your sadness,
Unleash them all
Because I will protect you

Pain
I feel it
Always
Alone
My heart
Pretends not to notice
I won’t run anymore
Bullying, no, definitely!

Dearly, painfully, with a strong heart,
From now on, I don’t want to see your crying face anymore

Bullying (no!) bullying (no!)
That’s not cool (No! No!)
Getting hurt, hurting others,
Getting covered in wounds

Fox (stop!), fox (stop!),
Surely you will fly
Your pains, your sadness,
Unleash them all
Because I will protect you

Bullying, no, definitely
Bullying, no, forever
Bullying, no, definitely
Bullying, no, definitely!

BABYMETAL provide an update on their current status as part of Lady Gaga's tour
August 5, 2014

On August 4, 3 member metal dance group BABYMETAL gave an update on their current status as the opening act of American singer Lady Gaga's (28) American tour.

The trio is serving as the opening act for 5 tour stops; they began touring with Lady Gaga starting on July 30 and will complete their leg of the tour on August 6.

Reportedly, Lady Gaga watched favorably from the front row or stage as the trio performed. On August 2, she even invited them to her dressing room. It is said that she gave them some advice on performing live.

The trio commented, "Even now, we cannot believe that we are going through such a precious and valuable experience."

to be honest, when their world tour was first announced, part of me was afraid that they wouldn't be taken seriously. it makes me feel very good to see that they've been getting pretty much nothing but positive press write-ups and such and even the foreign shows have sold out   :twothumbs

it makes me laugh when the so-called 'real' metalheads talk shit about them not being  'real metal' - yeah there's the idol-ly parts, but the metal parts are 100% pure fuckin' metal - even heavier than alot of the so-called 'real' metal bands lol (this coming from an ex-death metaller lol)

Each of the girls sang a favorite song from their birth year

MoaMetal chose to  perform Love Machine, which was a
Huge hit for Morning Musume in 1999.

デレデレしてるもあに愛理ちゃんはとっても優しいお姉さんでした。ありがとうございます
The face of true happiness... Moa after meeting Airi Suzuki. :P

From last year:

Quote from: http://wotaintranslation.com/2013/07/28/kikuchi-moa-babymetal-sakura-gakuin-continues-to-be-entranced-by-suzuki-airi/
Moa: For me, idols are something that give me courage. Just like Aiai-chan said, they make me smile. Right now I’m hooked on Suzuki Airi-chan from °C-ute. When I look at Airi-chan, she just heals me. I forget about all the bad things. It’s like she gives me my smile back. So that’s why I think idols are something that can make people feel happy and full of courage.

Well because of Babymetal, all other music performers/producers may as well seek other careers. Babymetal, especially their Megitsune, & Ijime, Dame, Zettai, was after all started because the Lord himself ordained Amuse Inc to do so.

Thanks for the info!  :thumbsup
Sad to see no west coast shows, I'm going to have to go Chicago for sure, HoB is a great venue.
I'm puzzled by the Columbus date. So many other cities would have made more sense to me. (like San Francisco!!)
Mexico but no UK is odd also.
But, as you say hopefully more dates on the horizon~

Sadly no UK date, and looks like if they were to add one, would have to be either side of their tight European schedule..

BUT...

They have decided to release their previous two London concerts on DVD/Bluray! Out 20th May!

They've also decided to release their album on 2xLP

(there's also a video message in the link but it's private so won't embed here...)

Since their other European dates are in June, it's a 2nd trip to Europe this year for them. I hope they do some solo UK dates, as, whilst I really loved going to Reading Festival as a teenager, it's something I've left behind years ago...

BABYMETAL become first Japanese artist to receive 'KERRANG!' award

(http://picroda.jphip.com/japanese/jphip37874.jpg)

On June 11, BABYMETAL received the "THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE AWARD" at music magazine KERRANG!'s award ceremony for "KERRANG! AWARDS 2015" in London.

"THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE AWARD" is awarded to an artist that is overflowing with the spirit of independence. BABYMETAL is the first Japanese artist to receive a "KERRANG! AWARD".

SEE ALSO: Check out BABYMETAL's live music video for 'Road of Resistance'

After the award presenter Young Guns introduced the girls, they appeared in front of the cheering crowd. In English, SU-METAL announced, "We will be back in August!"

BABYMETAL are currently in the middle of their world tour "BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2015". On June 21, they will return to Japan to perform a sold out concert at Makuhari Messe. Afterwards, they will set out to Europe once again to hold concerts in Germany and England.

On their twitter seems like they took photos will all the metal groups.

Also, they retweeted someone saying they had been spotted at the DOWNLOAD festival (also in England). They aren't on the bill... so maybe will be doing a surprise guest appearance.

BABYMETAL to hold a one-man live at Wembley Arena in April
August 27, 2015

BABYMETAL have announced that they will hold a one-man live at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London on April 2 of next year.

The SSE Arena, Wembley is an indoor arena that was built in 1934, seating about 12,000 people. X JAPAN is also scheduled to perform at the venue in March of 2016.

Last year, BABYMETAL held a one-man live at O2 Brixton Academy in London for 5,000 overseas fans. On their upcoming concert, MOAMETAL commented, "I was very surprised. I am very happy that we have the opportunity for many people, regardless of country, gender, and age, to learn about BABYMETAL's music and performance," YUIMETAL said "I want to exert myself even more in order to overcome anything," and SU-METAL shared, "Honestly, I still can't believe it! But I am already looking forward to holding a live again in England!"

In addition, a live footage of "Ijime, Dame, Zettai" from BABYMETAL's appearance in the rock festival "Sonisphere Festival UK" has been uploaded onto the group's YouTube channel.

Best moment. I really thought from the previews it'd be just a live vid, I'm glad it wasn't nearly that simple, some really neat stuff in there.

Song is great, one of my new favorites. Not perfect, but great riffs and especially towards the end it reaches some epic heights. :thumbup

It's a catchy song but I find the melody and arrangement too western sounding for my liking, not a fan of the "wow'ing" by Moa/Yui either - but I'm sure their western following will grow even more with this.

Personally I would like Su to continue Babymetal with the Kami-band as an officially part of the group (should probably change the name as well). I want Moa to be in a idol group, she has the perfect idol personality, Yui could be a choreographer for Amuse working with Mikiko.

But that's just me being contrary ;)

^ My biggest beef is the moa/yui parts as well, it just feels like they're in there because the twins needed something to do. :lol:

It's not Megitsune-level, but I'll take this over the tired power metal stuff like RoR any day, at least.

BABYMETAL drop PV for 'THE ONE'
March 27, 2016

BABYMETAL have dropped the PV for their new song "THE ONE".

"THE ONE" will be included in BABYMETAL's new album "METAL RESISTANCE" which will be released worldwide on April 1. It's a number with the member's thoughts "to make the world 'one' with BABYMETAL's music."

The PV is comprised of footage from BABYMETAL's live concert "BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2015 in JAPAN -THE FINAL CHAPTER OF TRILOGY-" held back in December at Yokohama Arena. The members sing the song midair while riding a gondola hanging from the ceiling.

^ always thought those "so and so's" react to "such and such" were not
very real at all, but credit to the producers for putting together BabyMetal's
reaction to the original reactors....it was fun, and you can tell the girls really appreciate
when people get past the "Wut?" stage, and really give them a serious listen.

Great job BabyMetal!

For those that live in the UK, the BBC did a half hour documentary on them here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p03pl75v/babymetal-wembley-to-tokyo
Despite being marked as Radio 1, it's actually a video documentary.

It was pretty good, I like the way they acknowledged what makes idols different is the personal contact with the fans - which, IMO, is why BABYMETAL aren't idols anymore.

Kindof a shame that of the 3 times they've come to London, I was only able to see them the first time - but that was an epic event.

I don't get the "anymore" part because they NEVER really had any personal contact with the fans, neither do Sakura Gakuin and you wouldn't say they aren't idols (in general none of the AMUSE idols have fan interaction so it's more of a management thing).

(Babymetal to my knowledge had ONE autograph session when they were in Singapore which was their first non-Japanese gig).
Title: Re: (Group) BABYMETAL
Post by: Jul3 on May 22, 2016, 11:06:05 PM
^ Fair enough. Maybe I shouldn't have included that word. But yeah, the fan interaction part is the core component of what makes idols idols to me, rather than some other kind of performer/celebrity. Maybe cuz I came into idols via AKB and then the underground ones, so missed any of the "non-contact" idols.
Title: Re: (Group) BABYMETAL
Post by: Rezar on May 22, 2016, 11:38:35 PM
You do have a point that fan interaction is an integral part of the post AKB-era, but as I understand it before AKB you couldn't interact with idols, I think AKB's motto in the beginning was "Idols you can meet". So when you and other people say they aren't idols I can follow it to some degree.

I kinda feel bad for the girls in Babymetal because I'm fairly sure at least Moa would love interacting with fans but they are more controlled than any idol group that I can think of which is why to me they are idols, and why I'm getting bored with their image everything is rehearsed and choreographed and there's no spontaneity whatsoever.

I've missed them the last two times they've been in UK, and it's really nice to see them play non-London venues... but I'd rather see them at their own gig not with RHCP. Never been to the MEN either, I normally go to the smaller venues in Manchester. It might clash with my work xmas lunch and also be really expensive, but I'll probsbly try and go to one of the Manchester dates.

Tickets are on general sale on Friday 2nd Sept, 10am, btw, seems like RHCP get a pre-sale. I still don't know whether I'll bother or not.

Crossfaith are a pretty good band, but they're wrong about BM. There are many different kinds of metal. What BM do is one of them.

I hadn't watched the video.

It's just a weird response. She's asking about the Metal scene in Japan with artists like Crossfaith and Babymetal, the next part of her question is difficult to understand but I assume she means that they are getting recognition outside of Japan, and then he goes out of his way to say they're not a band... Technically he's right, they're an idol unit. But I don't think that was the point of the question.

Babymetal - 18-06-05 - The Netherlands, Utrecht, Tivoli Vredenburg Ronda

History of Babymetal in the Netherlands

First things first, let's take a quick look back at Babymetal's history in the Netherlands. They performed here once before, namely on a metal festival called FortaRock in Nijmegen. Funny thing is, this was exactly two years ago, also on June 5th. Babymetal played the smaller stage in the tent, but it was packed. Pretty much everybody wanted a glimpse of them and they even drew crowd away from Megadeth, who were playing on the main stage at the same time.

One thing is for sure, their concert was a massive success. The crowd went crazy and everybody had a great time, despite the massive heat building up in the tent. I think this warm welcome from the Dutch fans is a big part of why they decided to play in the Netherlands again. A club show no less! A smart move, because this date sold out in literally no time at all. Luckily everybody involved got their heads together and added an additional date.

I've been told this is the first time ever they played an openly accessible club show (so no massive dome concerts or fanclub only shows) two days in a row. I was lucky enough to attend the 'Legend I' concert in Shibuya O-East in Tokyo in 2012. They actually performed that show twice that day, so in that sense the two Utrecht dates might not be that historically unique. That aside, it's still epic and very convenient for many fans who are following them on tour.

Arriving at the venue

The best thing about going to see the same show two days in a row, is that there is no stress. I didn't worry about getting a good spot, so I didn't feel the urge to line up super early. I arrived in Utrecht at around 16:00. I walked past the venue and already saw a big crowd. I said hello to some familiar faces, but then I went to grab a bite to eat. I lived in this city for a good four years, so I wanted to check out some of my old favorite places. Plus I knew where to get cold drinks for free, haha.

I went back to the venue at about 18:00. The doors would open at 19:00. There was already quite a long line and it got much, much longer after I got in. Makes sense, because the people who were able to get a ticket for this date had to be big fans. I also met several first timers who paid 150 euro (instead of the regular 33 euro) from a shady ticket site. Some of them didn't get in. They were scammed. Honestly? If you're gonna spend that much, you might as well have gotten VIP for 165 euro. That way you get early access and a small present.

The concert was at the Ronda room at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht. It's a fairly new building and I hadn't been here before. The Ronda has a semi-amphitheater layout, meaning there are plenty of places were you can get a great view. Personally, I don't like to be in the mosh pit. I had plenty of that at FortaRock, so I opted for the balcony. Despite lining up relatively late, I still had an amazing spot at the front, right in the center. I even had space to dance around!

The Babymetal concert #1

Setlist:
01. In The Name Of
02. Distortion
03. Elevator Girl (unofficial title)
04. Tattoo (unofficial title)
05. GJ!
06. Akatsuki
07. Megitsune
08. Gimme Chocolate!!
09. Karate
10. Road of Resistance
11. The One (unfinished version, later with Kami Band)

Allow me to start of with the two negatives I have to say about this concert. Firstly, I don't like the new intro song. I understand Babymetal Death isn't an option considering the whole Yui situation, but this new intro doesn't get me hyped. When it ends, the band has to change instruments and the girls need to change outfits, so you're left with a pretty lengthy gap going into the next song. Furthermore, the outfits aren't cool. The big masks are just weird.

The second negative is the amount of new songs, all at the beginning. OK, part of me is happy we are getting new songs after such a long time, but during a concert I want to hear the classics. That said, I must say Distortion is a cool song to hear live. I didn't really care for it at first, but the 'wow wow' part is definitely a lot of fun to sing along to. And the other two new songs aren't bad either, so I guess my complaint is minor.

Moametal getting her place in the spotlight with GJ! As a Yui fan, it felt a bit weird, but I gotta say Moa nailed it. Her dancing has improved a lot, probably due to working with the two new girls who are obviously both professionals. She can make herself look huge and her facial expressions are simply great. Dancing the way she does for almost an hour straight is intense and I respect her a lot. She gained tons of fans this tour for sure.

I was there when Akatsuki was performed for the first time ever during 'Legend I' and it was, well, legendary. It made a huge impact om me and the song has remained one of my all time favorites ever since. I'm super happy it's part of the setlist for this tour. Excellent performance by Su, the dancers and the Kami Band. I confess I teared up a little bit.

The highlight of the show was Megitsune. Everybody in the crowd participated with the shouts and hand movements. The one thing that stood out to me was the amount of smiles and fan interaction. Moa and Su would go near the sides of the stage to interact with the fans. They were genuinely enjoying themselves and Moa was bouncing from left to right at one point. It was a blast to watch. This was a key moment, because I decided I should stand on the side for tomorrow's show, to get a close view.

Gimme Chocolate!! Is so powerful live. Like I said, I even had space to to do the dance and hand movements, haha. I made a quick video of Karate, which you can check out below. The One was also great, especially when Takayoshi joined in with that emotional guitar solo. It always hits me right in the feelz. In the end, the show lasted exactly one hour. I knew what to expect, but some people were a bit disappointed it was that short. Taking into consideration the level of energy and the lack of MCs, I think it's alright.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dn4S1RVdl3w

Random thoughts

It's funny, but all the predictions regaring the line-up were wrong. No Leda, no Yui. Ohmura Takayoshi is one of the top 3 best guitarists in the world as far as I'm concerned, so I was super happy he was back for the European leg of the tour. He combines immaculate playing with crazy faces and intense movements. Isao doesn't really do it for me, even tho I still respect him as a musician.

Before the show I spotted plenty of Yui themed shirt, one of them giving the finger to Amuse. I'm a huge Yui fan, but if this is what it takes to let Babymetal continue, then so be it. The girls had a great time, as well as the band and all the fans. Everybody who went left with a huge smile on their face. It's like Sugizo replacing Hide in X-Japan to some extent. Sure, no Yui is far from ideal, but I'd still rather see Babymetal with two members than not at all.

Babymetal - 18-06-06 - The Netherlands, Utrecht, Tivoli Vredenburg Ronda

This time I arrived in Urrecht too early. I planned on walking around in Amsterdam, but it was too hot and crowded so I made my way south sooner as planned. I spent a lot of timing at the library of the university where I could sit in the shade, chill, drink and eat. I decided to go to the venue about 20 minutes sooner, because I had a plan for today. I wanted to stand on the side, because I knew the girls would go there.

The crowd was smaller than yesterday and I had a spot near the front of the line. The sun was scorching hot, so that VIP early access would've been more than welcome. I met two girls from Spain, a Finnish gentleman and a bunch of guys from Germany and France. Team France handed out these pins, which were just great. Tiny things like this can just make one super happy. I'll definitely cherish it, so merci beaucoup.

Every went according to plan and I was standing where the green circle is. The red circle indicates my position from yesterday. It was an insane spot, because it feels like you're on stage with them. You are literally in front of the security personal handling the main floor area. It's even behind the video screen so I could see everything that happened before and after.

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip09790.jpg)

Before the show I hung out with a Japanese guy and a Dutch guy I met the day before. We exchanged stories and it was just great fun. Turns out the Japanese guy was a metalhead, but he got into Sakura Gakuin thanks to Babymetal. Behind me were two business men who came straight out of work, because they wanted to see it, haha.

I'll keep it short (lol), but this concert was awesome. I was standing pretty much next to Takayoshi and it was a blast seeing him play. Standing on the side of the actual stage also gave an interesting new perspective on the choreography and their expressions. As expected, the girls came near the side again and they were super close. Seeing them smile and wave right in front of you is just special. I almost wanted to go stand on the balcony again, but I'm so glad I didn't. I would've missed out on an amazing experience.

Thanks to everybody who was there. We proved once again that the Netherlands adores Babymetal. If they ever go on world tour again, they will be back here for sure.

This is exactly how I feel about the whole situation. I love Yui and of course I'd love to see her again and Babymetal WAS different without her, but Su + Moa (+possible new background dancers) were SO POWERFUL and good live. I know there was a statement saying Yui was still in the band though, so hopefully we'll hear something concrete soon that's not steeped in Lore, haha.

The show in Atlanta was great too, so much energy, a great crowd (like seriously probably THE best concert crowd I've ever been in), tons of fan interaction, a FANTASTIC pit. The same setlist as well, though I actually didn't mind so many new songs myself. Despite all the controversy and no Yui, it honestly helped renew my love for Babymetal.

Yui Mizuno’s comment:

Message to fans

I apologize for my absence this whole time, and inconveniencing many people. I’ve given much thought to it, and I came to the decision that I will leave BABYMETAL.

I’m deeply sorry for causing trouble to the members and everyone who always supported BABYMETAL. To all the fans who cheered on BABYMETAL, I’m really sorry for making you sad.

I strongly wished I could stand on stage one more time but even now my physical condition is still not up to it, and I also have dreams that I’ve always wanted to pursue as Yui Mizuno. As such, I came to this conclusion.

I’m grateful for all the valuable experiences I gained as part of BABYMETAL/
Every day was a blessing to me.
I had the best time coming together as one and laughing with everyone during lives.
I’ll do my best and push forward so that I can meet everyone again as Yui Mizuno.
Thank you for these past 8 years.

Yui Mizuno



Su and Moa will continue/carry on, as evidenced by the following
