BABYMETAL – Megitsune – DVD Commentary has just been uploaded

Huff Post

Babymetal are not manufactured
They are precision engineered. If western pop is expertly produced but ultimately soulless tat, Babymetal are a cross between a Ferrari and a black panther; the whole project has been very carefully thought out and every component, from the musicians, choreography, costumes, song writing, has been crafted to perfection. As a die hard metal fan, I am impressed.

Death metal music is not cute. It is not sweet. It is not made up of teenage girls in crinolines singing about chocolate. But then there’s Babymetal, a Japanese pop band that is on an adorable rampage to conquer the world.

In America, we have grown accustomed to what many consider corporately overproduced pop stars, but the control record companies have over American pop music does not compare to the influence of talent agencies in Japan. Japanese pop (J-pop) and metal trio BABYMETAL exemplifies the power of these agencies.

When Cuca goes Megitsune

Well, Cuca is a Japanese teenage girls who’s doing some very interesting song and dance cover on YouTube and her last effort is our own Megitsune from BABYMETAL.

20140412111337bce

She’s actually pretty good and you can see her performing as variety of Japanese pop song by artiste such as Perfume, ℃-ute, AKB48, E-girls and even Morning Musume.

Cuca (くーか) is a popular Japanese dancer on the video-sharing website YouTube, where she uploads videos of herself dancing, and sometimes singing along to Hello! Project songs. She is popular amongst many Hello! Project fans.

She has auditioned for Morning Musume’s 11th and 12th generation.

Here is a free translation of her personal blog as she tell us about her preparation for doing Megitsune. Feel free to visite her blog and tell her ho you like her Megitsune cover at this URL: http://cuca2002.blog43.fc2.com/blog-entry-1957.html

Even I also like the other song, but I tried Megitsune^^

The key is very high!!
I’m singing with the throat at first,
Because it was difficult,
As much as possible,
So I concentrate to come out voice with stomach
After that、
Behind the skill of「ITO FAMILY」、
「How to get high voice with karaoke」is writen、
The way is「sing while lifting a dumbbell(It’s OK to put some force on hand for people without dumbbell)」、
When I encounter difficulty while singging this song,、
And this come out,
Alright,
I’ve been thinking : Try to put the force on hand!!
If you put a force on hand,
The hardship will become a little bit better^^

I didn’t know BABYMETAL until now,
But my dad have the DVD of BABYMETAL,
There is an opportunity to show me by saying that「Take a look, it’s cool」.
CUCA’s dad apparently like heavy metal.
Heavy metal・・・I do not understand it very well.

The red fluffy (skirt),
is made by mom for me.
We went to search the cloth together,
and it cost 299 yen.
Yeah it is cheap ~ ~ ~ And I have a mother that genius in searching ^ ^

Thank Ho Choon Shen for the translation.

BABYMETAL To Become Youngest Artists To Ever Perform At Tokyo’s Nippon Budokan

BABYMETAL — the heavy metal offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and death metal — will become the youngest artists to ever appear at Tokyo Nippon Budokan when they take the stage at the famed venue on March 1 and March 2.

Sayuri Iwai, previous holder of the title, made her Budokan debut at 15 years old and one month. She will be usurped by Suzuka Nakamoto (16), Moa Kikuchi (14) and Yui Mizono (14), who hold a mean age of 14.6 years.

A trailer for BABYMETAL’s upcoming Nippon Budokan performances can be seen below.

BABYMETAL will release its debut album on February 26 via Toy’s Factory. The effort will be 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 released its first-ever concert Blu-ray, “Live ~Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse~“, on November 20, 2013 (the limited-edition DVD box was issued on October 19). The set contains footage of the band’s performances at Shibuya O-East (October 2012), Akasaka Blitz (December 2012) and Zepp Tokyo (February 2013).

BABYMETAL last year embarked on the “Death Match Tour 2013” and was accompanied by a “full metal band.”

In the spring of 2013, Suzuka Nakamoto graduated from junior high school and therefore had to “graduate” from the group SAKURA GAKUIN (which consists of girls of up to junior high). However, it was decided by the management that BABYMETAL would not dissolve and would continue their activities as a band.

Razor TV conducted an interview with BABYMETAL when the band performed in Singapore in December 2013. You can now watch the chat below.
