BABYMETAL’s Kami Band explained!
BABYMETAL’s live backing band is called “Kami Band”. Before the concert ‘Legend “I”‘ (2012 Oct. 6), BABYMETAL performed all with the playbacked music and the fake band dressed in bone suit.
In Legend “I” & “Z”, Kami Band appeared on the encore and played only 2 or 3 tunes. In 2013 May-Nov., BABYMETAL held more concerts performing all with Kami Band than all without Kami Band. In their first arena solo concert (2013 Dec.), the fans expected BABYMETAL would perform all with Kami Band, but Kami Band played only 4 tunes in the encore.
The members of Kami Band are Takayoshi Ohmura (guitar), Leda (guitar), BOH (bass) and Aoyama Hideki (drum). In the latter half of 2013, the members are roughly fixed but some were absent in some concerts because some belongs to other band, and others are skillful musicians hired for other sessions. And almost of the recording musicians were not credited in the CD singles (some kami may have played in them).
