Here's a new live video, just posted on the the 11th.  

 

 

Edit:  As if the mix of J-Pop and Metal wasn't enough... let's toss in a shamisen:

No info on why they're there, but Babymetal posted a pic on FB of themselves in New York (scroll down a little bit):

 

http://www.babymetal.jp/home/

 

They posted the pic on FB less than an hour ago and already have over 9000 likes.  I'd say there's a bit of demand for them to perform here in the U.S.

 

More here:  http://babymetal.net...metal-new-york/

 

Edit: One guy on Reddit says that a reliable friend in the media in NY (take that for what it's worth) says they may be in town for Jimmy Fallon, others are speculating Ellen.  Still others are betting on US dates being announced sometime over the next three days, and then there's this: http://www.ticketmas.../artist/1993807

 

Again, FWIW.

New commentary video for Head Bangya (click the CC button for subtitles):  

 

 

Also... http://babymetal.net...ry-english-sub/

here is a nice Reddit question!

 

“Head Bangya!!” or “Headbanger!!” or “Headbangeeeeerrrrr!!!!!”?

 

It is “Head Bangya!!” … they switched the title a while ago.


FYI, the lyrics of the song is closely tied with “Bangya” (sort of a shorthand for “Band Gal”) a Japanese word for female metalheads (adoring male metal bands, particularly “Visual Kei” bands, the most famous example being X-Japan). For example, “Kolo-dai” “Gyaku-dai” in the lyrics, are both slangs widely associated with bangyas.
So maybe KOBAMETAL wanted to put an (admittedly subtle, and to Western audiences certainly cryptic) emphasis on the fact that this is not only a song about “head banging” but also an homage to the “bangya” phenomenon. In other words, this is a word play, a title with a double meaning.

Still in NY.  

 

They visited Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound: https://twitter.com/...4/photo/1/large

 

Guy seems to have a rather extensive list of mastering, remastering, and engineering credits: http://www.allmusic....en-mn0000022180

Their world domination has begun...

It is only a matter of time until everyone is assimilated.

Interview with Ohmura Takayoshi, one of the guitarists for Babymetal: http://jphip.com/jph...-european-tour/

 

Kinda funny - the girls weren't really aware of heavy metal music before forming Babymetal, and this guy was unfamiliar with J-Pop idol music.  Sounds like a match made in Kitsune (Fox)-heaven.  :lol:

Heh... the fun is really starting now.  Just got done reading a thread on a Lady Gaga fan board and the reaction there is pretty much what I expected: *exactly* like the reaction of the metalheads to Babymetal being announced for Sonisphere and Heavy Montreal.

 

Metal fans = Gaga fans  :popcorn:  :Jester Used to be soddys fave:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

So, the L.A. show at the Fonda sold out rather quickly when the tickets went on sale today - under ten minues apparently, but then, it's only a 1200 seat venue: https://twitter.com/...043278742458372

 

Also, Yui turned 15 today (well, yesterday, in Japan).  Moa turns 15 next month, and then Su turns 17 in December.

 

Lastly, some interesting art:  

 

4962ff4830d88f414cf27f100c241fd8.jpg

 

Can see Metallica (for sure) by the coffins, and Megadeth and Slayer (according to others) up on the stage with the virgin mary statue.  There's also a bunch of nods scattered throughout that refer to things in their history, but I'm not going to go through them.

 

Edit:  Forgot about this: Babymetal and Judas Priest posters in the new Metal Hammer: https://metalhammer....of-metal-hammer

 

Edit#2: Meh... thought it looked familiar...

Well, sure.  The Germans and Japanese were allies after all... why wouldn't he?  I'll bet Emperor Hirohito was into the Scorpions... ;)

 

Oh... wait!!!  Maybe both Hitler *and* Hirohito liked Lacuna Coil as well.  Which means Mussolini probably liked Babymetal and the Scorps...

Paris, today (Ijime, Dame, Zettai):

Live band, live vocals.

Yui sang lead on Headbanger (instead of Su) because the concert was also celebrating her 15th birthday (they're calling it Legend Y), and the song is about a girl turning 15.  Presumably, Moa will sing lead on Headbanger in Cologne, Germany for *her* 15th, and it will be called Legend M.

Sorry the video was cut short, but it's actually the longest video I've been able to find from the show.  Most others are only about 15 seconds long.
