With a little less than two weeks to go, BABYMETAL release new promotional videos from their forthcoming “METAL GALAXY”. Trading in sounds inspired by the Indian subcontinent, the girls haven’t looked this giddy in quite a bit of time. Kaleidoscopic images fill the screen and the six-armed goddess makes a appearance with a head shake and a well-placed gesture. The heavy guitars are still in place under the mix, but this is sure a different sound for those who have grown accustomed to the bone-beaking sounds of the group. But no, not you. You’ve been trained to appreciate the eclectic sounds of the idol scene and will probably place “Shanti Shanti Shanti” right next to “Koi wa Accha Accha” in your filing system.

Babymetal, stylized as BABYMETAL (ベビーメタル) are a Japanese kawaii metal band. Originally consisting of Nakamoto Suzuka (中元すず香) as “Su-metal”, Mizuno Yui (水野由結) as “Yuimetal”, and Kikuchi Moa (菊地最愛) as “Moametal”, the band was formed with the concept of a fusion of the heavy metal and Japanese idol genres. The band is produced by Kobametal from the Amuse talent agency. Their vocals are backed by heavy metal instrumentation played by the Kami Band during live performances. Initially formed in 2010 as a sub-unit of the Japanese idol group Sakura Gakuin, Babymetal became an independent act in 2013, following Nakamoto’s departure from Sakura Gakuin. Babymetal has embarked on several tours, including the Babymetal World Tour 2014 held after the release of Babymetal, with a majority of their tour dates taking place outside of Asia. With the departure of Mizuno Yui in 2018, BABYMETAL continues with the duo of Nakamoto Suzuka and Mizuno Yui.
