BABYMETAL is the offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and heavy metal.

BABYMETAL kicked off its world tour with a headlining show on July 1 at La Cigale in Paris, France and will support pop superstar Lady Gaga on five shows in July and August.

The band released its debut album on February 26 via Toy’s Factory. The effort was made available in regular and limited editions. The CD includes five of BABYMETAL’s singles that were released in 2011 – 2013, from “Doki Doki Morning” (digital single) to “Megitsune”, their B-sides and three new songs.

BABYMETAL made it to No 3 on iTunes’ U.S. rock chart and was in the Top 10 in six other countries, including the U.K. The band’s video for the song “Gimme Chocolate” has received nearly 12 million views on YouTube, and BABYMETAL was featured on the cover of the U.K. weekly rock magazine Kerrang!


The band’s first major single, “Ijime, Dame, Zettai”, sold 19,000 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 6 in the Japanese Orion weekly singles chart.

Orient-Extrême : Come back to a softer side. well some rumor saying that ChthoniC are fan of japan girls-band BABYMETAL !?

Doris Yeh : In fact, only the singer Freddy and the drummer Dani are fan. Me and the guitar player are not very much. That’s an interesting band and we gonna play with them in February 2014 in Taiwan, as they will play in concert. I thin mixing our Taiwanese metal with this Japanese girlsbband can give a very good result. I can’t wait to be there, our singer and drummer are too happy to play with BABYMETAL.

Orient-Extrême : Talking about collaboration with BABYMETAL, do you think about doing a single with them?
Doris Yeh : Yeah .. we are thinking about it, we also think about what we are gonna do for the concert: maybe wearing different clothes for some songs that we will play together, they same costume as BABYMETAL, i don’t really know for now. We keep the surprise for the fans
