BOH’s blog update about BABYMETAL’s Europan Tour (ENGLISH TRANSLATION)

BOH has safely return home after BABYMETAL’s Europe Tour and finally updated his blog. Please enjoy our English translation here:

Blog entry: June 15, 2016

I have returned to Japan from the European Tour. о (ж>▽<)y ☆

I have received a lot of valuable experience, I am filled with happiness!

I am grateful that I am blessed with the opportunity to go to various countries.

it’s obvious that every country has a different language and customs and although I always have in me the pride of being Japanese, no matter which country I go, I try accepting and be ready to absorb everything, and to act with an open mind.

In particular, in Japan it is a common greeting to bow and show respect, but for me, I am carrying out such courtesy with the highest importance even in foreign countries.

I can clearly remember what the adults around me have said to me when I was small, “Be a man who can properly lower your head to other people.” (*TL’s note: it means to become a humble person)

Even if it has been said as lowering your head, you can really feel the delicacy in a graceful heart-felt bow as an open and fair attitude, although the implication may vary depending on the situation. I think it’s a very wonderful thing.

Rather than constantly lowering your head, there is an elegance in showing a one deep bow.

I’m in an extreme jet lag, I even bow deeply to the PC in front of me while typing these texts ← jk, i’m just sleepy LOL

And so, this is the part where I should say something about the Tour… , but there is something personal in my mind, I will not put BABYMETAL related stuff in the blog for a while.

I am aware that a lot of things happen, but I hope that many of you who always look forward to this can understand the situation.

I will write up on other things up to this point in some other time or when I feel like it in a relaxed manner. (´∀`)

There are a lot of things to be done immediately after returning home, I also haven’t decided when to do Nico douga Live stream, if you have a lot of time to kill, please check my Twitter as I will post anything from random silly things to important announcement time after time. (*^ー^)ノ

Regardless of anything, there sure are a lot of beautiful ladies in Europe. ヽ(゜▽、゜)ノ

Aah, I look forward to the day I can go there again.

Watching a beautiful woman makes me feel better, as I bid farewell to my hair follicles everyday.
That is all from BOH the bassist.(B・o・H)

Babymetal At FortaRock Review By Metalfan.nl (TRANSLATION)

 

While the legendary Megadeth was far from over on the main stage, the tent was already bulging before the start of the Babymetal show. It was worth the money for the fans who bought their ticket especially for the Japanese formation. While on both Babymetal albums the Japanese girls’ vocals and electronic influences sometimes seem to dominate too much, live the music is rock solid. The fine musicians of the backing band (the Kami Band) get all space to display their talents and give a strong piece of modern metal. Once you get used to her voice, it seems that lead vocalist Su-metal is a fine singer.

The visual aspect and the interaction with the audience did finish the whole show. The three young ladies perform nice little plays and good choreographed dances and prove that they can deliver. The thrilled response of almost all attendees in the tent (and far outside) shows that Babymetal should be on the main stage next time.

REVIEW: BABYMETAL AT FORTAROCK 2016

 

A risky move or was it bull’s eye, that was the question with Babymetal. Our conclusion is the last one, this Japanese band with three young kawaii singers/dancers were the point of discussion of the whole festival, but they owned the Large Rock Hand Stage. The people, masses consisting of fans but also curious ones, went nuts, and while the curious ones really liked it or quickly left after the second song.

 

REVIEW: BABYMETAL AT FORTAROCK 2016

 

Babymetal consists of fine musicians, who entered the stage during the ‘Fox God’ intro and showed their musical talent during ‘Babymetal Death’, while the ‘dollgirls’ only had use to fire up the audience on each side of the stage. Their first lines of singing was during the megahit ‘Gimme Chocolate!’ this was what most people wanted to hear, but even after this song lots of people stayed.

 

REVIEW: BABYMETAL AT FORTAROCK 2016

 

The voice of lead singer Su-metal even sounds higher live than on the album and live it looked like Yuimetal and Moametal had a little less input, but the choreography of the three girls was fantastic song after song. There was no lack of activity, a circle pit during the third song Catch Me If You Can which sounded great and loud instrumental and at the end a Wall Of Death, Su-metal’s will is law. There was a calmer bit too, Meta Taro showed the cute side of the girls all the way while Su-metal sang beautifully on Ijime Dame Zettai. Also their new hits ‘Karate’ and ‘Road Of Resistance’ where they were waving with flags did fantastic. We are full of praise about this show and atmosphere, just put them on the main stage next time, please!

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL

Rob Zombie, a recent fan of BABYMETAL, has been outspoken since seeing them live.

After seeing them live the first time recently, here is a summary of what Rob had to say.

“It’s like nothing I have ever seen before. Leave it to the Japanese to find a way to make Death Metal cute. It was awesome”

“The crowd was going Ape Sh#t, the amount of crowdsurfing … and complete mayhem… is the most bizarre fn thing”

Watch the unedited interview below, linked right to the question asking him about BABYMETAL.

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL

 

Rob’s recent shares and thoughts on BABYMETAL has got the band trending on Facebook once again, and there was no shortage of haters helping it trend. It may be safe to say we owe the BABYMETAL haters for at least a portion of the bands raising popularity.

 

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL@nikkinickelz on Reddit
Which brings me to the Ladybeard part of the story, on his segment #AskLadybeard.

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL

Ladybeard had a few things to say about Rob Zombie and Metal Purists on SBS PopAsia Kawaii Connection program.

^ Listen to Ladybeard’s response to the question in full here ^

#AskLadybeard (@Lucky?)
Q. Have you seen that story about Rob Zombie and BABYMETAL vs some haters?

Here is a summary of what Ladybeard had to say on the subject of metal purist and haters.

“It didn’t surprise me in any way, that whole story, Rob Zombie did a great job sticking up for the girls.”

“…most actual metal artists are really behind BABYMETAL,  they realize how unique and interesting and fun and engauging BABYMETAL’s show and concept is…”

Ladybeard responds to Rob Zombie’s stance on BABYMETAL“I of coarse love BABYMETAL, and I am with everyone who’s supporting them.”

“I’m not opposed to the Purists having this attitude… I think your role as an artist to be both Loved and Hated, in equal measure.”

“You put your work into the world and there are people who are going to respond to it positively. But there is just as many people who will respond to it negatively, a lot of the time more. Then there is people who just don’t care.”

“The Heavy Metal Purists have made up their minds that they love, Judas Priest, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth… and THAT IS ALL! Anything else, see you later, we’re not having it, we don’t care, especially anything that can be considered ‘Pop’ or ‘Mainstream’…”

“With this attitude directed towards me (LADYBABY), that makes me quite happy, it’s those guys who keep the spirit of ‘Heavy Metal’… They maintain a strong sense of what ‘Heavy Metal’ is.”

“… fans get a sense of identity of being our fans, the haters are the same, they are proud of being the ‘Haters’.”

“I heard about it, I say good job Rob Zombie. I thought he was very articulate sticking up for BABYMETAL. Bless him, but at the same time I have no problem with the ‘Haters’.”

 

So maybe the ‘Haters’ do have some force behind BABYMETAL’s word of mouth. They were a help to getting the group more viral than just the fans can do sharing the greatness of the group between themselves. That is at least a factor, and I would say a powerful one.

I like to think many of these Purists will have a sister or a daughter who will love BABYMETAL after seeing them rant about it. As with this Rob Zombie story, you never know who the next big supporter will be. Rob has seen the videos long before, but after seeing them live, he became one of the long time Heavy Metal performers who support BABYMETAL, and think what they are doing is positive.

BOH’s Blog Update About The US Tour

BOH updated his blog and shared his thoughts about the recent BABYMETAL US Tour. Read our English translation below:

Entry: May 17, 2016
BABYMETAL’s East coast US Tour has finished!!

Hello! This is the bassist who has too much baldness, BOH

ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

After about 2 weeks of touring with all my power, now I am updating this blog with my temporary disguised form!

This time, the show began in New York, then Boston, Philadelphia, Concord, Silver Spring, Detroit, Chicago and Somerset, the Metal Resistance had been successfuly carried out in 6 solo live shows and 2 festivals!

The 2016 World Tour kick-off was quite a challenge, but I am glad we were able to successfully accomplish it without any significant problems.

I was able to receive a lot of great motivation, no matter where the venue was, and also to receive strength from the audience, so now I am able to return home feeling happy.

Especially at the House of Blues, Chicago, while I was performing I felt strongly that BABYMETAL has powered-up multiple times since the first show in this place last tour.

I also saw many dear fans came not only from US or Japan, but from countries all over the world. Every day, I felt nothing but gratitude from the bottom of my heart for the fact that I am able to perform in BABYMETAL who is loved by so many people.

With every opportunity, the bond within the staffs, the Kami-band, the girls and also as a team is getting stronger, and I think we were able to deliver such power to the audience.

I can spend some time in Japan for a while, because the next Europe Tour is in June. We, the Kami-band will put even more spirits into it so that the God of Metal descend to keep up with the ever-evolving three girls \(*`∧´)/

Seiya! Soiya! Keep on fighting! I will keep pressing forward with Japanese pride, the spirit of Samurai, to create the best show!

My endless thanks to you for your support(B・o・H)
