BabyMetal in London | Saturday 2nd April 2016
Japanese viral phenomenon BABYMETAL made their debut appearance in the United Kingdom last year at Sonisphere. Since uploading the video of their latest single ‘Gimme Chocolate’ less than two months ago it has received more than 5 million views. The music press was forced to stand up and take notice, with everyone from Kerrang! and Metal Hammer to the Guardian and USA Today covering the teenage trio’s catchy blend of iconic pop and heavy metal.
… And since then they have been around few more times, the last time at Raeding festival last August.
Trying to place where Babymetal fit in the grand scheme of heavy metal is impossible, they’re a product of a culture that simply doesn’t exist in the Western world.
