J-Pop mixed with Metal just should not work, but in the case of the Babymetal there is no denying it does!

Fans arrived at the main stage in their hoards for the band’s inaugural UK performance and were treated to a stunning display of syncrhonised dance and fantastic musicianship. Babymetal return to the UK to play Brixton Acadamy on November 8th and at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, NY for Nov 4, 2014 07:00 PM.

Sakura Gakuin has reavealed the MV for their new song “Heart no Hoshi” which will be released as a DVD single on October 22.

sakura-gakuin-rakusa

This will be their first single since the current formation of 2014. The new song is a cute and girly pop tune produced by Tommy february6 & Shunsaku Okuda who also provided the group’s past single “My Graduation Toss” which was released in February, 2013.

Heart no Chikyu / Sakura Gakuin
Sakura Gakuin

In the music video, the two worlds of present-day Sakura Gakuin and the Rakusa Clan (“Sakura” backwards, in Japanese), an imaginary tribe enacted by Sakura Gakuin members, intersect throughout the story; the concept of the song, that “if our hearts are connected, the earth is one,” is expressed in a fanciful and magnificent way. The group members divide up to act out the two worlds, which are connected by a magical doorway. The girls wear outfits that are not their usual school uniforms, and the video is brimming with their cute charm.

BABYMETAL – White Love (English Captions Intro)

BABYMETAL “White Love” with English captioned prolog from ‘LEGEND “D” SU-METAL聖誕祭 / Seitan-sai’ on December 20, 2012 at Akasaka BLITZ.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ao4n4YAJ1gM

Enable ‘CC’. Notes indicated in the video can be found below:

Notes and translations by Du Enki. For the best English translations of BABYMETAL material: http://du-metal.blogspot.ca/
“White Love” originally by Speed.
BABYMETAL Official ◆ http://www.babymetal.jp/

NOTES:
1. The opening music is an arrangement of Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance #1” a.k.a. “Land of Hope and Glory”, used here for SU-METAL’s birthday celebration (Seitan-sai / 聖誕祭 meaning “holy birth festival”).
2. The “Second Impact” is the fictional meteorite impact happening on 2000 Sep. 13 in the anime “Neon Genesis EVANGELION”. SU-METAL’s birth may have made an impact equal to it.
3. “Speed King” is a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the four-girl group “SPEED”. The song “White Love” was a hit in 1997 (the year Su-Metal was born), and is originally by SPEED.
4. “invicible” is an allusion to the famous heavy metal band “X JAPAN”.
5. “Kotowari” sounds like “logos” of the ancient philosophies rather than mere “physical law” of the world.

Full translation, notes and more information on “White Love” can be found here.
“Endless Rain”, the final song from X Japan’s last live Dec. 31, 1997:
