Our 10 thousand character interview

 

 

‘So, it true that are we really granting dreams to people?’

(Yuimetal)

Q:

This is the first time for any of the 3 of you to appear in ‘Hedoban’ since 2 years ago.

Yuimetal:

Eh!

Moametal:

Is that right?! For some reason or other it doesn’t seem like to me DEATH!

Q:

That may be because we feature reports on your live shows in just about every issue (laughs). However, as for interviews goes that is how it stands. The first time the 3 of you were interviewed by us was about 3 years ago which means that you were both still 1st graders in Jr. High school!

Yuimetal and Moametal:

(laughing)

Q:

With that, I would like for you to look back on and reflect about the 2 years where we have not been able to interview you. These 2 years were a succession of stimulating and miraculous happenings and I am sure that for both of you those 2 years went by in a flash.

Moametal:

I do really feel that the 2 years passed by in the blink of an eye. There is absolutely no way that I can call that span of time as being 2 years. That is because each and every happening was so incredibly deep and rich in content. There were so many instances that I felt were so enjoyable and so many that were so difficult to deal with! While of course there were truly tough times, it is only the fun times that come back to me in my memory.

Q:

Do you mean to say that the fun times far outweigh the hard times?

Moametal:

There is no comparison DEATH!

Q:

How about Yuimetal?

Yuimetal:

It really did fly by in a flash…so many things, too many things happened in that 2 year span. I am amazed that all that happened occurred in just 2 years. That includes Yokohama Arena that took place just a little while ago, as well as Sonisphere… they all feel like something out of a dream and when I reflect back on things none of it has a sense of reality about it.

Q:

These 2 years felt like you were living in a dream, like your feet weren’t touching the ground? Is that how it felt?

Yuimetal:

Hmm..yes, that sounds right. And so, when I was Yuimetal I was myself existing in a dream, and when I was in my temporary disguise I was my ordinary self. It was a traversing back and forth between the two states.

Q:

Is that the same for Moametal?

Moametal:

Yes, I think so. There were way too many rich and intense happenings to rightly be jam packed into a 2 year period of time (laughs). Kitsune-sama truly determined to barrage us with a ton of challenges and tests and so I think he (she?) is a bit malicious. (laughs)

Q:

(laughs)

Moametal:

I was so busy that it was became almost impossible to distinguish between dreamland and ordinary reality. If this is really happening in the real world then it is truly and amazing occurrence. I don’t think there has ever been a band that has driven upwards and on at the speed we have.

Q:

Indeed. I doubt you would be able to find another band that has taken on the world stage at this kind of speed even if you searched the world over!

Yuimetal and Moametal:

(laughing)

Q:

While you felt as if all of this was happening inside a dream, in the realm of reality you have brought dreams to people all over the world, don’t you think? Has this fact struck home with you? When you performed at the Rokumeikan there were only around 300 people in the audience. From thereon the number of fans coming to your shows rapidly increased until at the end of last year at Yokohama Arena BABYMETAL performed in front of 30 thousand fans in 2 days. The whole world is going crazy over BABYMETAL and there are enthusiastic fans who have been greatly moved by you. In your position as BABYMETAL you have granted a storm of dreams to people all over the world resulting in what is being called ‘The BABYMETAL phenomena’. How do you feel about what is going on?

Moametal:

Moametal simply, in no way, can keep up with all of this…I am truly happy that people say things like that however. We personally continue to move without knowing in what manner we have grown and succeeded, nor where our final destination will be. When we are told that, ‘you are granting dreams to people, you know’, I get a renewed understanding of how things are. This makes me happy DEATH!

Yuimetal:

I am so happy to hear you put it like that, DEATH! So, it true that are we really granting dreams to people?

Q:

I think you are doing that in spades! You have done so in Europe and are granting dreams to a wide variety of people here in Japan. For us at ‘Hedoban’ you have given us a dream to extent that we have plowed ahead to follow you on your overseas tours.

Yuimetal:

It is all very difficult for me to imagine….none of this has struck home as being real to me.

P. 9

Q:

Would this seem more real to you if it was seen as taking place inside a dream?

Yuimetal:

Yes, that sounds right (laughs). Looking from our perspective from the stage, we can see that the audience numbers are getting bigger. However, no matter how big the venues get, our desire to perform with a beginner’s mind is something that never changes DEATH!

 

2015 December 12 to 13

World Tour 2015 in Japan

[The Final Chapter of Trilogy]

Yokohama Arena

 

‘I was afraid if I looked down my tears would definitely drop down on the fans, so I sang looking upwards.’

(Moametal)

Q:

That is fantastic, DEATH! From this point on I would like to ask you to look back on and reflect about the major events of the past 2 years. To begin with, the one closest in time to us now is last year’s Yokohama Arena show. You do remember that show, correct? (laughs)

Yuimetal and Moametal:

Yes! (laughing)

Q:

First of all, how did it feel to ride in on a gondola making your entrance in front of the fans? Wasn’t it scary?

Moametal:

No, it wasn’t scary at all. I was surprised the first time I heard about it though (laughs). You know, there are many artists who fly around above the stage in their shows, right?

Q:

Yes, there are – above the stage as well as above the audience.

Moametal:

I was curious about what the scenery would like when we got to experience it ourselves. I was worried if I would be OK in such a high place, but I knew that the 3 of us could become as One on that Gondola! I felt an immense power coming up my back.

I was a bit uneasy about it at first, but once we actually rode out on it, it was pretty much just like a ride at an amusement park (laughs).

Q:

(laughs)

A bit like the feeling of having fun at an amusement park?

Moametal:

Yes, that’s right (laughs). But, as you know, Yokohama Arena is a really big place! Riding on that gondola I was so delighted to be able to see so many fans. Then, later we sang ‘The One’ from that gondola DEATH!

Q:

That was the unveiling of that song, right?

Moametal:

Yes. And in spite of it being the first time to perform it, the fans all sang along with us! I was so moved by that that I was afraid if I looked down my tears would definitely drop down on the fans, so I sang looking upwards.

Q:

That’s how you felt riding on that gondola….

Moametal:

Yes, and so….that really propelled the intensity of how emotional it was.

Yuimetal:

I wanted to laugh and wave my hands but the atmosphere of the doesn’t really allow for those sorts of actions….. I was, however, able to clearly see the faces of the fans and everyone had smiles on their faces, you know. I was so happy to be able to so directly experience the feelings of the fans. I felt love from them.

Q:

From your vantage point riding in the gondola, were you able to hear the fans singing?

Moametal:

Oh, yes, we could hear them! We really wanted to wave our hands, right?

Yuimetal:

I was itching to do so! (laughs)

P. 10

Moametal:

I so wanted to wave my hands and look down on the crowd but,…

‘The One’ is not a song that has that kind of atmosphere about it and so I held myself in check (laughs).

Q:

You debuted 2 new songs at Yokohama Arena- ‘The One’ and ‘Karate’, right? How did you you both feel about these songs the first time you heard them?

Maometal:

We first did the recording for ‘Karate’ of the parts of ‘Seiya! Sessesse Sesse Seiya!’ and ‘Soiya! Sosso Sossoiya!’ which made me think that this would prove to be a really interesting song. And, once we completed it I thought, ‘Wow, this song is one that I really love!’. There is this ethical understanding in Karate that the martial arts ‘begin with a bow <good manners>, and ends with a bow’, right? I felt that this is also something that is absolutely essential in living our own lives as well.

Q:

You have really grown.

Moametal:

(laughs) When I first listened to ‘Karate’ I felt that this feeling is something that we must never lose sight of. In addition to that it also focuses on the importance of ‘the fighting spirit’. If we perform this song at a live show I felt that there is nothing that the 3 of us have to be afraid of. When we perform this song I feel that I want to fight and continue on with this team.

Q:

Yuimetal, how do you feel about ‘Karate’?

Yuimetal:

We first only heard the ‘call out’ sections of the song and so I thought that it might be a song designed to draw out the humorous side of BABYMETAL. But, once I heard the whole song in its entirety I felt it was a really cool song with an immensely deep core intent contained in it. And the lyrics are so incredibly straightforward, don’t you think?

Q:

Yes, it is almost too straightforward and direct.

Yuimetal:

The choreography is also so amazingly cool. It is also packed with BABYMETAL-ish ‘call outs’ and yet it is a also a perfect song to fit with the aspect of BABYMETAL pioneering ahead in that pathless path that we are traveling down.

Moametal:

What I learned when it was decided that we would be performing a song called ‘Karate’ that made a deep impression on me was that in all of the Martial Arts it is only Karate that does not have a ‘Ukemi’ <protection, self protection, defense> aspect to it.

Q:

I see.

Moametal:

And so, I felt that it was a song that perfectly fits with the feeling of BABYMETAL of never looking back and of only charging ahead!

Q:

That is so true!

Moametal:

I think that also is an amazing part of it.

Yuimetal:

Karate is something that Japan has created, right? And so I think this song has a feel about it that is similar to ‘Megitsune’.

Q:

It does have a Japanese <Harmonious> feel to it.

Yuimetal:

Yes, it does DEATH! I think the overseas fans will perceive it as being really fresh and new and I hope that with this song as well as with ‘Megitsune’ that we will be able to convey a sense of Japan <Harmony>.

 

2012 March 1 and 2

‘Red Night Legend <Giant Neck Brace Festival>

~ Tenka Ichi Metal BudouKai Final~’

Black Night ‘Legend <Doomsday> ~ The ritual of summoning>’

BudouKan

 

Q:

Going way back in time from Yokohama Arena we go back 2 years to the 2 days of

shows at the BudouKan. Do you remember that?

Yuimetal:

I remember it!

Q:

Really? (laughs)

Moametal:

I remember it fairly well (laughs)

Q:

(laughs) On the first day’s show we had the happening with Yuimetal, right? What was Moametal’s state of mind when that happened?

P. 11

Moametal:

In my way of looking at things, the BudouKan served as a turning point…

‘I switchover in my mind thinking, ‘ I will just have to dance for 2 now”.

(Moametal)

Q:

Do you mean it served as a turning point in the activities of BABYMETAL?

Moametal:

Yes. Up until that point we had never performed at such a big venue for 2 days of shows. And more than focusing on the choreography we actually prioritized our time remembering where to stand on the stage at certain times and were working hard to get used to the stage props and so I must admit I was uneasy about everything. So many things occurred on the first day that I was in a bit of panic wondering ‘what should I do?’. I knew that we just had to get through the hardships somehow or other. I felt, well, if I get confused about things I should just make things work out by dancing!

Q:

Did you switchover to that kind of mindset the moment Yuimetal disappeared from the stage?

Moametal:

At that moment in ‘Hedobangya!’ I switchover in my mind thinking, ‘ I will just have to dance for 2 now’.

Q:

‘Dance for 2’ – that is a remark that will be etched in history. How were the BudouKan 2 days for you?

Yuimetal:

It was a tremendous thing to me. I mean, you know, the BudouKan is such an amazing venue. It is a venue that I knew about from the time I was a little girl. I never imagined that one day I would be able to perform on that stage where so many famous artists have performed, so when I heard that we would be playing at the BudouKan I was really surprised. I thought that because of its stature we would have to truly put on a show that would not be unbefitting.

Q:

Yuimetal, what was your mindset regarding the 2nd day show?

Yuimetal:

Well, since I had caused so many people to worry about me I felt that I had to perform in a way that would let them know that I was completely fine! And I went all out to do that.

Moametal:

Something that the 3 of us talk about amongst ourselves recently is the idea that we would like to perform the same set list that we used at the BudouKan once more time, DEATH!

Q:

Do you mean the 1st day or the 2nd day?

Yuimetal and Moametal:

The 1st day DEATH!

Moametal:

It was really tough at the time, but now that we have added power and stamina through our World tours we would like to see what kind of show we could put on now. When we performed for the first time, at the Rokumeikan, it was truly gruelling.

Q:

The Rokumeikan show was a tough one as well?

Moametal:

Yes. And that is why we would like to perform those 2 shows one more time DEATH!

 

2014 July 5

Sonisphere ~ Apollo Stage

Knebworth, UK

 

Q:

I personally would love to that someday.

So with the completion of the BudouKan shows you then prepare to travel to Europe. BABYMETAL, this band that has caused so many miracles to occur is about to open the curtains on their first World Tour which begins with Sonisphere. There were 50 to 60 thousands people in attendance at that time, right? This is of a scale that is even bigger than the Festivals you had theretofore experienced in Japan; weren’t you nervous?

Yuimetal:

We couldn’t see the crowd at first.

Moametal:

Yes, right, right.

‘….experience of performing at Sonisphere has helped us overcome any hardships we have faced at other big venue shows after that.

(Yuimetal)

Yuimetal:

We wanted to see what the audience looked like, and perhaps because we took a peak at a slanted angle from the side of the stage, it didn’t seem like there were very many people gathered to our show. And so, we faced the stage with the uneasy feeling that there may not be any people there to watch us. But once we actually made our way onto the stage we saw that there were people stretching way back out of sight.

P. 12

Yuimetal (cont):

What is more, this was our first overseas Metal Festival and I think it would be fair to say that the vast majority of the people there were seeing BABYMETAL for the first time, and this being the first time to perform on such a large stage, we were really nervous. But, as we progressed through the songs the crowd started raising their fists in excitement and even doing the Fox sign. Plus, when we finished they were screaming out, ‘We want more!’.

Q:

Yes, we could clearly hear those screams for more.

Yuimetal:

We could really hear it! When I heard that I thought to myself, ‘BABYMETAL’s music has really reached these Metal fans!’. I was so happy to have gotten the strong realization that we had grabbed the hearts of these people. The deep realization has led to more confidence, and that experience of performing at Sonisphere has helped us overcome any hardships we have faced at other big venue shows after that.

Q:

So, looking back on things, do you consider Sonisphere to have been a turning point for BABYMETAL?

Moametal:

Yes, I think so. There is no doubt in my mind that it was a turning point! At first, the sense of trepidation outweighed the sense of having fun…..and we knew that this would be our first time doing an ‘away from home’ show and at an overseas Metal Festival.

Q:

But, you, the 3 girls of BABYMETAL are so ridiculously strong when it comes to ‘away from home’ performances, right?

Moametal:

You think so? (laughs)

Q:

No mistake about it!

Moametal:

That said, it is because of Sonisphere that we come to consider ‘away from home’ to equal ‘fun’. Recently I have come to like our ‘away from home’ venue locations (laughs). It is incredibly fun to build up the fun and excitement and bring everyone along the BABYMETAL path, DEATH!

Q:

You mean, even playing the big venues turns to fun as you perform?

Yuimetal:

It is fun from the get-go.

P. 13

Moametal:

Yep.

Q:

Really?!

Yuimetal:

You know, the Festivals are made up almost totally of people who don’t know BABYMETAL. It is true that it is a task to convey the charm of BABYMETAL to new people starting from scratch, but it is precisely because of that there is a huge sense of achievement at that moment when we feel we have grabbed their heart. I really like Festivals as they are.

Q:

Regardless of whether they are overseas or domestic?

Yuimetal and Moametal:

Yes, DEATH!

 

2014 November 8

Back to the UK Tour 2014

O2 Academy Brixton, UK

 

‘However, I had the best time of all in the unveiling of ‘Road of Resistance”.

(Moametal)

Q:

Next, we have your 2nd solo live performance in London at the Brixton Academy. This was the debut of the song, ‘Road of Resistance’, right? In our interview with Kobametal in ‘Hedoban Vol. 6’, he said that Yuimetal had made a request to debut ‘Road of Resistance’ at Brixton Academy.

Yuimetal:

I may have said that (laughs).

Q:

(laughs) That song has now become a song that represents BABYMETAL. What was your impression of it the first time you listened to it?

Yuimetal:

First of all, let me say I am so incredibly happy that this song got made. The songs of BABYMETAL before this one had a humorous perspective about them in their lyrics, but this song contains a very hot, passionate message. And what is more, since it fits perfectly with the state that we are in at the moment, there is so much in the lyrics that we can totally relate to, DEATH! Yuimetal tends to put great emphasis on the lyrics of songs when I listen to music.

Q:

Does that go for both songs by BABYMETAL as well as other artists?

Yuimetal:

Yes. I focus on the lyrics when I listen to the songs of other people as well. I tend to feel, ‘Ah, I like this song’, in light of the lyrics. And because of that, out of all the BABYMETAL songs it is ‘Road of Resistance’ that I like the best DEATH! I really like songs that energize me with power. I also like the dance for this song, DEATH!

Q:

The dance is absolutely cool. What does Moametal think about ‘Road of Resistance’.

Moametal:

It is a song that I like as well. I really like the unveiling of new songs.

Q:

Does that go for all songs?

Moametal:

Yes. The first time we debuted ‘Doki Doki Morning’ I was overwhelmed with fun and excitement looking ahead to performing it.

Q:

Do you remember that?

Moametal:

Of course I remember it! However, I had the best time of all in the unveiling of ‘Road of Resistance’.

Q:

Did you think that even as you were dancing?

Moametal:

Yes, I felt that as we were dancing. With this being set up to be debuted as a new song overseas, and with more love of performing new songs from the outset, I was absolutely, totally overwhelmed with delight when so many of the fans sang along with us in spite of it being its first performance.

Q:

I was there at the show and the foreigners were really going all out singing along with you. We you surprised by that?

Moametal:

I was really surprised! I was ridiculously happy, DEATH!

Q:

Are you able to hear the fans when they sing ‘Wow wow~’?

Moametal:

Of course, we can hear them. I take out my ear monitor to hear them.

Q:

Do you take it out on purpose?

Moametal:

Yes, I want to hear their singing voices (laughs).

Yuimetal:

You can even hear them singing with the ear monitor in.

Q:

Do the 2 of you get energy from that ‘Wow wow~’?

Yuimetal:

Yes. And that goes especially for when we debuted it in England! The response of the fans was totally unexpected and off the charts. For example, we feel more at ease performing in Japan than overseas, right? England gives us a feeling that is close to that – it is a feeling of being able to perform without worry you could say. England feels like a second home to us.

P. 14

Yuimetal (cont.)

And that is probably the reason why I said that hoped we would debut ‘Road of Resistance’ at our 2nd performance in England.

Q:

Just as Yuimetal just now said, England is a place where one feels at ease. You have traveled there about 4 times, right?

Yuimetal:

I think we have gone more times than that.

Moametal:

We go there quite often.

Q:

So, anyway, does England truly have the feeling of being your 2nd hometown?

Yuimetal and Moametal:

Yes!

Yuimetal:

Part of that is probably due to the length of the time we have spent there as well.

Moametal:

We sometimes stay in London for a full week at a time, so I feel completely comfortable there (laughs).

 

2015 May 9

BABYMETAL World Tour 2015

Circo Volador, Mexico City, Mexico

 

Q:

Next, I hope we can talk about a show that out of the BABYMETAL shows that I have seen overseas made a strong impression on me personally-the Mexico show. You had already toured in Europe, but I believe this is the first time for you to play in Central America. What was your image of Mexico before going there?

Moametal:

I had no real image outside of the food, DEATH!

Q:

(laughs) You mean tacos?

Moametal:

Yes! (laughs)

I only knew Mexico for tacos. I had the image in my mind that it was a country where they only ate tacos all the time and so I wondered what kind of country it would actually be. When we actually went there I realized that it is situated at a very high altitude!

‘We went and climbed a pyramid there in Mexico as part of our training’.

(Moametal)

Q:

Did you feel a lack of oxygen when you were performing?

Moametal:

Yes, I did. We rehearsed at a venue we had rented out before the show and it was quite tough there as well. We went and climbed a pyramid there in Mexico as part of our training.

Q:

You went to the pyramid not for sightseeing, but rather for training purposes?

Moametal:

That’s right, DEATH! It was in order to get used to the high altitude.

Q:

Yuimetal, what did you think of the response of the fans?

Yuimetal:

I can’t really say as I don’t have much of a memory of the live show. The altitude was so high at that show that I was just focusing with all my might on performing each song one at a time.

Q:

I was there and the fans were singing out ‘Ole, ole ~’ like they were cheering on a soccer game, right?

Moametal:

They were singing like that!

Q:

The atmosphere of the venue was that of like being in a soccer stadium. Also, following the ending of the show the fans didn’t go home even though you had exited the stage. They just kept riding the excitement.

Yuimetal:

I was so incredibly happy!

Q:

When they would they would spot a Japanese they would ask, ‘can I take your picture?’.

Yuimetal and Moametal:

Wow, really?

Q:

It was like a non-ending Festival.

 

2015 May 29

Rockavaria

Olympiapark, Munchen, Germany

2015 May 30

Rock Im Revier

Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen, Germany

 

Q:

After this there were 2 Festivals – Roc Kavaria and Rock Im Revier. Do you remember them?

Moametal:

The German Festivals, DEATH!

Q:

That’s right. Munich and Dortmund. Many of the super famous overseas Metal bands like Metallica and Limp Bizkit were also appearing at these shows. When you see these overseas bands perform do you get interested in their music and go on to listen to them?

Moametal:

Yes. When I heard Limp Bizkit’s ‘My Generation’ I immediately thought to myself that I had heard it somewhere before. (laughs)

‘For us, ‘Metallica-san IS Metal’, you know.’

(Yuimetal)

Moametal:

We do an homage to them, but the first time I heard them perform it, it made me feel like they were doing an homage to us (laughs).

Q:

(laughs)

Moametal:

And so, I think the German Festivals were fantastically fun, DEATH! I was able to go around and see a lot of different performances.

P. 15

Q:

What impressions does Yuimetal have of the German Festivals?

Yuimetal:

I was also deeply impressed by Limp Bizkit, but it is the presence of Metallica, in the end, that has really impressed me.

Q:

They are that big to you?!

Yuimetal:

Yes, DEATH! The first Metal band that we met was Metallica-san, you see. For us, ‘Metallica-san IS Metal’, you know. When I saw them perform I thought they were so cool. When we actually met them in person backstage they were so friendly and kind, and it was this gap that really attracted them to me. They have that ‘Star quality’ in spades.

Q:

You also saw them at the Reading&Leeds Festival.

Moametal:

Yes, we saw them there as well! I don’t think I have ever had a case of goose bumps like I got when I saw them!

Q:

You got goose bumps watching the Metallica performance?

Moametal:

We were able to watch the show from the side stage. I was so amazing to experience that volume of sound at such close proximity and the guitar and vocals were just so cool. They even glanced our way when they exited the stage. I wonder if they remembered us. That feeling of having been recognized also made me very happy, DEATH!

Q:

The reason you were able to feel that Metallica is so cool is proof that the spirit of Metal has completely taken up home inside you, I think.

Yuimetal:

When we first saw them we just thought of them as some middle aged foreigner men.

Moametal:

That’s right (laughs)

Q:

What was the moment when you changed into thinking they were cool?

Yuimetal:

When we met them at Summer Sonic I was just of the impression that foreigner are friendly, but when I saw them actually performing a live show I thought, ‘Are these really the same people?’ – the gap was that big. When we saw them live the other day….their ability to grab ahold of the audience was totally amazing – something almost otherworldly. We are not even close to that level yet, DEATH!

Q:

Is Metallica an existence that is something like a target for you?

Yuimetal:

We have always and continue to say that our aim ‘is to be the only one’ and I believe we have absorbed a great deal from Metallica-san, DEATH!

Moametal:

Rather than treating them as a target I would say that we want to absorb all we can from them, take that and change it into ‘our own style of Metal’.

Q:

Wow, you have come a long way in 2 years to be able to speak like that….

Yuimetal and Moametal:

(laughing)

 

2015 September 16 to October 16

World Tour 2015 in Japan

 

‘I had so wanted to do a Japan Tour for long that I was so excited leading up to it.’

(Yuimetal)

Q:

After you returned from Europe you began your first Japan Tour. In every interview you were saying, ‘we would like to do a Japan Tour’, and so this must have been something the 2 of you were looking forward to for a long time, right?

Yuimetal:

I was very happy!

Moametal:

It was a lot of fun!

Q:

A while back you said that you wanted to go to Kyuushuu, didn’t you?

Yuimetal:

Yes, she was saying that!

Q:

Do you remember?

Moametal:

I do remember that! Honestly, I only have fun memories about everything to do with the Japan Tour. Out of last year’s World Tour the part that I feel was ridiculously fun was the Japan Tour part. You know, when you do a World Tour it is not so easy for Japanese fans to make it to the shows, right? That is why I had felt that I wanted us to do a Japan Tour from quite a while ago. So I was happy that that came true, and I was so amazed and surprised that the way the fans get into and work with the shows can differ so much from location to location even within Japan.

Q:

Wow, you picked up on that!?

Moametal:

Yes…at the Oosaka show and elsewhere.

Yuimetal:

Also the 1st day differs from the 2nd day at the same venue.

Moametal:

I too felt that it is amazing how much the 1st day can differ from the 2nd day at the same venue.

P. 16

Q:

I was fortunate enough to see both shows in Oosaka and in Sapporo. The Sapporo show was also an incredible one.

Moametal:

Sapporo was also very hot.

Yuimetal:

Yuimetal was strongly impressed by every show in the Japan Tour. I had so wanted to do a Japan Tour for long that I was so excited leading up to it. I was so delighted to find, upon actually arriving at the venues, so many people who were waiting to see us perform. The bonds of unity between us and the staff were also really strengthened by traveling around Japan together.

Moametal:

That is so true!

Yuimetal:

It was nice to shorter distances to travel and I was so incredibly happy to finally meet Japanese fans with whom we were not able to meet before. There are still so many places I want to go to, DEATH! It is of course important to travel overseas and spread the BABYMETAL ‘Ring’ ever farther, but the Japan Tour made me realize more strongly than before the need to first bring Japan together as One before we travel around the world.

 

About Su-metal

‘More than seeing her as an elder sister, I really see her as a comrade in the fight.’

(Moametal)

Q:

I want to ask you this precisely because Su-metal is not here. How do you think Su-metal has changed during the past 2-years?

Moametal:

Hmmm… that makes me think. You know, we are together for so long, all the time so we really feel like a family. We really are together close to it being everyday.

Yuimetal:

With things as they are, we are comrades on arms, DEATH!

Moametal:

More than seeing her as an elder sister, I really see her as a comrade in the fight. In BABYMETAL there is no one who is not needed, and no who can be replaced. I love Su-metal’s voice so much that I can say with absolute certainty that we could never have come as far as we have if it wasn’t for Su-metal’s singing voice. I think Su-metal in her own way went through many hardships and worries these past 2 years. I am sure that many things came up with her voice and a multitude of other things. But, she never brought those out in the open to others and so there are times that I get hit with emotions when I see her performing on stage, having fun and playing around with us. I come close to tears every time I think of how, in spite of, I am sure, dealing with many tough things, she is there to lead us on.

Yuimetal:

Su-metal is a such an incredibly important figure to me….and just as Moametal said, she never allows any hardships she is going through to come out in the open. There are so many things that I feel that make me think she worked so incredibly hard to overcome difficulties, including things on the vocal side. When I hear her singing voice come through the ear monitor, I think, ‘I need to work harder. Since Su-metal is giving it her best like this, I too can do much more’. I get power and energy from her during the live shows as well, when we make eye contact on the stage I get an immense peace of mind. I am sure she will continue to grow as a totally reliable person.

What song (s) do you particularly like on Metal Resistance?

‘My favorite song is most definitely, ‘Road of Resistance’.

(Yuimetal)

Q:

This is my last question for you. Could you both tell me what songs you particularly recommend?

Moametal:

That is a tough one….(laughs).

Yuimetal:

OK, so, shall I go first?

Moametal:

Sure!

Yuimetal:

My favorite song is most definitely, ‘Road of Resistance’.

Q:

There no way you will sway on that one, right?

Yuimetal:

Right. The next in line would be, ‘The One’ if I embed it with expectations on how it may develop as a song. This song perfectly ties into the BABYMETAL of the current moment, as do the lyrics. But, I think that as we continue to travel around on Tours this song will, over time, develop into its final completed form.

Q:

Does that include involvement from the fans?

Yuimetal:

Yes, it does. I think it is still incomplete. The same goes for ‘Road of Resistance’. When we unveiled it in England it was not yet complete and it was the larger than expected sing along by the fans that allowed it to make such a good start. By the time we played it at Yokohama Arena this song had come along with us through so many experiences which is what has made it the song it is now, I feel. The song, ‘The One’ that we first performed at Yokohama Arena will, I think, be the song that we most want to ‘power up’ in this coming Tour.

P. 17

Yuimetal (cont.)

I hope that it will become packed with lots of memories so that by the time we perform it at the Tokyo Dome it will be a totally different animal on a bigger scale than it was at Yokohama Arena and will serve as a song that we can all sing and become One together with. Together with the expectations I have for it, I would like to recommend this song.

Q:

OK, Moametal.

Moametal:

I would choose ‘Meta! Meta Tarou’. I feel that this album itself is amazingly interesting. The pervious album represented BABYMETAL as it was, while this album has us challenging many aspects of ‘what BABYMETAL considers Metal to be’.

Q:

It really is packed with various types of Metal.

Moametal:

Yes. For example, ‘Sis. Anger’ is a song that takes on Black Metal as only BLACK BABYMETAL can do, but out of all the songs, it is ‘Meta! Meta Tarou’ that really stands out, I feel.

Q:

It is true that once you hear it you will never forget it (laughs).

Moametal:

I think it is a song that you can’t forget. And also, like the ‘Wow, wow~’ of ‘Road of Resistance’ , this song also is one that everyone can sing along together on and the choreography is also something that everyone can join in on.

Q:

The choreography is already completed for it?

Moametal:

It is ready! It is really simple, so I hope you will dance to it! I want all of us to dance together, DEATH!

Q:

I can’t begin to imagine what the choreography will be like. (laughs)

Moametal:

I think you will be surprised (laughs). Recently there has been an increase in the number of fans of the same generation as BABYMETAL and hope to extend our ‘Ring’ out to include more, DEATH!

BABYMETALに豊かなバリエーションを加えるYUIMETALとMOAMETALの今後について語り合おう!

bm-news01

 先週開催された新しい形式のライブ『金キツネ祭り』が大成功で終わり、もう一つの新形式である『銀キツネ祭り』も大いに期待されます。
 ファンの年齢層の幅広さや多様性はBABYMETALにとって大きな財産であり、更なるファンを獲得するための大きな武器でもあるだけに、『5大キツネ祭り』のような形式のライブは来年以降も続けてほしいですよね。

 ところで、ファンの年齢層が幅広い割にメディア露出が少ないことなどもあり、まだ知名度はそれほど高くないような気もします。知る人ぞ知るという存在でもある意味クールですが、出来れば多くの人に知ってもらいたいのも本音です。

 しかし、もしかするとこれは管理人の勘違いで、ただ音楽性が好まれていないだけで知名度は高いのかもしれません。
 もしそうだとしたら、今後は頭の柔らかい若い世代を重点的に狙って行くしかないことになり、そういう意味では先日の『金キツネ祭り』開催はベストタイミングだったのかもしれません。

 また、幅広い年齢層や多様なファンを満足させるためには今後もバラエティー豊かな曲を作成しなければならないはずで、新曲作成陣にとってはこの大きな財産であり武器でもあるファンの年齢層の幅広さや多様性が却って大きな重みになるかもしれませんよね。
 しかもBABYMETALの場合は国内ファンだけでなく海外ファンも満足させなければならないため、新曲作成スタッフは本当に大変でしょうね。

 特に最終的な決断を下すKOBAMETAL氏はプレッシャーが半端ないと思います。
 おそらくファーストアルバム作成時は遊び心もあったでしょうが、世界から注目されるようになった今では次の3rdアルバムにどんな曲を入れるのか頭を痛めているはずです。

 ただ、幅広い年齢層や多様なファンを満足させるためのバラエティー豊かな曲を作成するという点で、新曲作成陣にとってYUIMETALとMOAMETALの存在は本当に大きいように思います
 リードボーカルSU-METALの存在はもちろん大きいですが、BABYMETALに豊かなバリエーションを加えるYUIMETALとMOAMETALの存在はこれから益々大きな存在になって行くように思います。

 そこで今回は今後のYUIMETALとMOAMETALについて語り合おうじゃないですか!

①YUI&MOAが歌ってSU-METALが躍る曲もあって良いと思うww
②YUIMETALとMOAMETALのソロ曲もあって良いと思う
③YUI&MOAもポニーテールになるライブ『ポニーテールミサ』があって良いと思うww
④逆にSU-METALもツインテールになるライブ『ツインテールミサ』があって良いと思うww
⑤その他

 皆さんは今後のYUIMETALとMOAMETALにどんな可能性を感じているでしょうか?
