Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few years, it’s very likely that at one point or another you’ve encountered Babymetal.
The internet sensation hailing from Japan that has, whether you like it or not, taken the world of heavy metal by storm in a way that very few acts manage to do.
Consisting of three teenage Japanese girls on lead vocals accompanied by a traditional metal backing band, the group has generated both positive interest and extremely negative criticism from people across the spectrum of harder-edged music.
February 2014 welcomed the release of the band’s self-titled debut album Babymetal, pushed by the single “Gimme Chocolate” which essentially got the Babymetal ball rolling.
While the trio of girls have undoubtedly become the group’s image and definite selling point when it comes to marketing the act, please do not be distracted by this and judge what is most important – the music.
They have announced a new record titled ‘Metal galaxy’ scheduled to arrive on October 11th, 2019.
