BABYMETAL performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and death metal, will release its first-ever concert DVD and Blu-ray, “Live ～Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse～”, on November 20 (Blu-ray) and October 19 (limited-edition DVD box). The set will contain footage of the band’s performances at Shibuya O-East (October 2012), Akasaka Blitz (December 2012) and Zepp Tokyo (February 2013).
A trailer for “Live ～Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse～” can be seen below.
BABYMETAL’s “Megitsune” single was released on June 19. The song is said to combine traditional Japanese instruments with metal overtones and an enka ballad to create a festive sound. The theme of the track is “women are born actresses.” Four different versions were made available for fans to purchase: a limited “Tsu”, limited “Ki”, and a limited “Ne” edition, as well as a less expensive regular edition. The limited versions come with bonus videos from the BABYMETAL live events that were held from 2012 to early 2013.
BABYMETAL recently embarked on the “Death Match Tour 2013″ and was accompanied by a “full metal band.”
In the spring of 2013, Suzuka Nakamoto graduated from junior high school and therefore had to “graduate” from the group SAKURA GAKUIN (which consists of girls of up to junior high). However, it was decided by the management that BABYMETAL would not dissolve and would continue their activities as a band.
BABYMETAL released its first major single, “Ijime, Dame, Zettai”, on January 9.
