BABYMETAL AWAKENS – THE SUN ALSO RISES –

This performance was the beginning of “Metal Resistance Chapter 8” by one of three members of “Avengers” selected by Fox’s announcement.

The ONE (fan) was caught up in a vortex of enthusiasm, combined with stage productions, new songs, and a magnificent scale from beginning to end, where the unique worldview that could be said to be their true heart was fully exhibited. The latest performance will be broadcast on WOWOW for the first time in about a year and a half, and there is no doubt that it will be a notable stage.

Babymetal to Open for Guns N’ Roses on Upcoming Tour

Based on new billboards that have surfaced in Japan, Babymetal is set to perform as an opening act for Guns N’ Roses on some of their upcoming shows.

Babymetal slash Guns N' Roses

Apparently, the girls will support Axl and co. on their recently-added Yokohama show on January 25, as well as in Tokyo on January 29.

Last year, Slash praised Babymetal, branding them one of the top acts to emerge in recent years.

The guitarist said on The Dave Fromm Show: “I’ve heard these guys – they’re the most exciting thing that I’d seen recently. ‘Cause they have a look, and they’re girls.”

Directly asked if he’d play a show with Babymetal, Slash replied, “Yeah, sure. I mean that’s its own thing. But, I mean you know, all these artists are really established in what they do. In other words, they sound really good and very professional.”

Some of the acts that have opened for GN’R on the ongoing reunion tour include Skrillex, Chris Stapleton, Billy Talent, The Cult, Alice in Chains, and Lenny Kravitz.

Babymetal – Music Japan Special Night 2016/04/04 English Translation

These are the interview parts taken from Babymetal – Music Japan Special Night with English subtitles copied from this video which is already deleted. This program was broadcast by NHK on 2016 Apr. 4th 0:04-0:43 (JST).

Babymetal – Music Japan Special Night

Click caption button at the bottom right to display the subtitles. I’m sorry that the subtitles are hard to read because of overlapped Japanese subtitles and that I can’t merge the videos in one. Omitted parts contain the studio live performance and the same old introduction of BABYMETAL with Sonisphere, Lady Gaga, etc.

I’m sorry if I’ve mistaken the voices of SU-METAL, YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL. The words enclosed with parentheses “(xxx)” are what I’ve inserted as supplement or what NHK inserted on their subtitles. The words enclosed with parentheses & asterisk “(* xxx)” are supplement that I’m not so sure of.

Notes
I’m not sure whether “the venue (= it) has not changed” or “we have not changed” because they didn’t say grammatical subujects.
I apologize to everyone for failing to stranscribe Miss Yui’s word. Considering the context, most likely words are “taihen datta” (= it was tough).
They met in 2011 Dec. for a magazine “SWITCH” vol.30, no.2 pub on 2012 Jan. 20th. Miss Suzuka was 13 or 14 yr. and Miss Yui & Miss Moa were 12 yr. then. Maybe it was not a talk session but a photo session.
Miss Suzuka misunderstood Mr. Marty as a TV personality probably because Japanese TV variety shows for ordinary people often feature heavy metal musicians somewhat comically. Mr. Marty has appeared some music variety shows.
“J POP”.
“洋楽” (yôgaku)
“Gichigichi”
“Irregular meter”
