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.
