Prolog & Epilog for Onedari DaiSakusen 2

Included in "LIVE - LEGEND 1999 & 1997 APOCALYPSE" (released on 2014 Oct. 29th).

Prologue to "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "1999"

Long long ago, once upon a time, there was the paradise of the Metal called "the Garden of E-DEN".
There lived Angelic Metal (Stryper)
    and Devilish Metal (Mayhem) together in mutual prosperity across the genre barrier.
It was the paradise full of the Metal love.
In "the Garden of E-DEN", YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL play hide-and-seek.
There was "the special place" most suitable for it.
About that "special place", they were told "you shall be eaten by scary ogres if they find you there".
It was "the Forest of the Devil".
One day, when playing hide-and-seek, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL lost their way in "the Forest of the Devil".
The two were very hungry and found "the apple tree".
But it was the trap of "the forbidden fruits" set by the devil. The two didn't notice it and ate them.
Then, their faces suddenly turned pure white.
Saying "the number one Metal is, after all, the Black Metal, isn't it?",
they changed into BLACK BABYMETAL...

Epilogue for "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "1999"

The Forest of the Devil, it was the gate to the horrible Hell. The keeper of the Forest of the Devil said
"Shall I make you my next wax doll?".
By his magical power, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL
were changed into wax dolls and didn't move an inch.
They were taken to "Madame Assoo, the house of waxworks"
and were displayed with the Metallers in chronicle.
SU-METAL felt
"I want to become a wax doll, too".
SU-METAL was nearly tricked by the devil,
but, seeing their figures, she decided to escape from here.
However, those who leave the paradise can never return to it again.
Heading for a new EL DORADO, now "the Ark of Metal" departs from here.

Prologue to "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "1997"

It is the holy night, the wonderful night when each one's dream comes true.
But the Metal Resistance is in execution even in the holy night.
The Fox God, the god of the Metal, in order to dye the holy night steel color,
sends down the gods of guitar,
the god of bass,
and the god of drums,
with the Black Santa Clauses...
The Black Santas come to good kids' houses.
"Give me! Give me!"
In order to beg you for the present, the Black Santas come to your house, too.
Now begins the biggest "Begging Operation" in history.

[i] About the Proportion of Kami Band Accompaniment

At the beginning, BABYMETAL stood alone on stage with audio playback. Later, a fake band wearing skeleton suits (called "BabyBone") began pretending to play the instruments behind them.

Legend "I" concert (2012 Oct.) was the first concert in which a live band called "Kami Band" accompanied them. But Kami Band played only in the encores (2 of 9 tunes) then. In the four concerts of 2013 May, BABYMETAL performed all tunes accompanied by Kami Band (8 or 9 in each).

In Legend "1999" concert on 2013 Jun. 30th, the second half (7 of 14) were accompanied by Kami Band. During the summer & autumn of 2013, more than half concerts (mainly in music festivals) were accompanied (fully 30-40 min.) by Kami Band.

In Legend "1997" concert on 2013 Dec. 21st, only the encores (except Akatsuki (Unfinished ver.), 4 of 14) were accompanied by Kami Band. All 5 concerts between Legend "1997" and Bodokan concerts were with BabyBone.

In Bodokan concerts on 2014 Mar. 1st&2nd, Kami Band accompanied all tunes (13&15). And thereafter, Kami Band has accompanied all tunes of all(?) concerts (as of 2014 Nov. 8, all details according to Wikipedia (ja)).

(Kami Band is not a pure live accompaniment. They play only 4 parts. The harmony lines are the playbacked SU-METAL's vocals, and the piano parts, organ parts, etc. are played by the MIDI sequencer.)

Notes

  1. About SEIKIMA-II & Demon kakka, see note [i] of "Overtures 2".
  2. Stryper is a metal band from California, formed in 1983, dressed in yellow & black. They sang their Christian beliefs and the band was called "Christian Metal".
  3. Mayhem is a metal band from Norway, formed in 1983, called "Black Metal". According to Wikipedia, one member murdered another, and he also set fire to Churches. The mutual prosperity seems impossible.
  4. Combining these two lines and ignoring the word order, it says "There was 'the special place' most suitable for YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL to play hide-and-seek in 'the Garden of the E-DEN'".
  5. Combining these two lines and ignoring the word order, it says "That 'special place' was 'the Forest of the Devil' where they were told 'you will be eaten by the scary ogres if you are found by them'".
  6. Their white faces appearing in the picture are parodies of Demon kakka, but neither SEIKIMA-II nor BLACK BABYMETAL is of the Black Metal.
  7. This line is from "Rohningyoh no Yakata" (= the House of Wax Dolls), the 1st minor scripture (= CD single) of SEIKIMA-II. It says like "In a house in the forest of the devil, an old man makes an wax doll out of a kidnapped girl every night...".
  8. It was a parody of "Madame Tussauds" in London. But no waxworks of Metallers seem to be there.
  9. After "Onedari DaiSakusen", there was a 10 minute intermission for preparation of Kami band and "the crystal piano".
  10. "Onedari DaiSakusen" was the first tune of the encore, the first tune Kami band played on that night.

They are in London!

Notes

  1. It is "Furby", created and originally sold in USA 1998. It looks like some animal appearing in the picture. At first it speaks its own language, but, as people talk to it, it "learns" the preset language (1 of 24).
  2. In Legend "M" concert in Koeln 2014, MOAMETAL was introduced as "the Angel of Love", not "the Angel of Smile".
  3. I don't know whether MOAMETAL has ever said the origin of her name "最愛" or not, but she often introduces herself as "最も愛を大切に!" (Mottomo Ai o taisetsu-ni!; cherish the love most!).
  4. MOAMETAL said she liked a girl idol story "Kirarin Revolution" (comic&anime) since she was very young. The first CD she bought in 2007 was sung by "Kirari TSUKISHIMA starring Koharu KUSUMI (Morning Musume.)" (heroine / voice actress). Now she often says she likes Airi SUZUKI (of °C-ute) very much. I'm not sure which idol was referred to.
  5. MOAMETAL belongs to a girl group "Sakura Gakuin" (= Cherry Blossom School), but its membership is limited to 10-15 y.o. girls (in 5th-9th grade).
  6. Probably "Dancin' all of the night" has no special meaning, just cited from the song "LOVE Machine".
  7. Combining the last two lines, ignoring the word order, etc. and complementing the grammatical subject, it says "[MOAMETAL] has been performing the undercover propagation in the idol scene steadily".

Prolog to YUIMETAL’s Birthday Celebration

Included in "LIVE - LEGEND 1999 & 1997 APOCALYPSE" (released on 2014 Oct. 29th),
played in Legend "1999" concert on 2013 Jun. 30th.

Prologue to YUIMETAL's Birthday Celebration   on 2013 Jun. 30th

When the dango tango swept through Japan and the gray band held an audience of 200,000 spellbound,
the Angel of Dance landed on this world.
The angel is YUIMETAL.
The Fox God said
"To be tied by some reason".
YUIMETAL prepares for the upcoming Metal Resistance.
She collects many seals. She goes to the school limited to the girls in growth period.
In this way she has been performing "little by little" the undercover propagation in the idol scene.

Notes

  1. The BGM is an arrangement of Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance #1" a.k.a. "Land of Hope and Glory". It was playbacked also in Legend "D" for SU-METAL's Birthday Celebration.
  2. It is a tango titled "だんご3兄弟" (Dango San Kyoodai; Three Brothers of Dumplings). It was performed in children's TV program targeted at 2-4 y.o.(?), but it appealed to people of all generations and the CD sold over three million copies.
  3. It is a Japanese rock band "GLAY". On 1999 Jul. 31st, it gathered an audience of twenty thousand in the parking area of Makuhari Messe, near Tokyo.
  4. The Japanese notation is "由ありて結ばれる", but this explanation is strange. "由" is read as "yoshi" (as one-kanji word). It is read as "yui" only in few two-kanji words such as "由緒" (yuisho; history). There's no other one-kanji word read as "yui" than "結" in the dictionary. Since "結" is read as "musubu" too (the meanings are nearly same), when used for name, another kanji read as "i" is often attached (e.g. "結以", "結衣") to show the reading "yui". The attached kanji is often regarded as meaningless. "由" of "由結" may be attached for the same reason. I don't know whether her parents really meant "理由ありて結ばれる" (riyuu arite musubareru; to be tied by some reason) and 'he' only misheard it, or 'he' made up whole the story.
  5. YUIMETAL often said collecting seals was her hobby. Stamp-size stickers are called "seal" in Japan.
  6. YUIMETAL belongs to a girl group "Sakura Gakuin" (= Cherry Blossom School), but its membership is limited to 10-15 y.o. girls (in 5th-9th grade).
