A brief chat with the Japanese phenomenon
Last Saturday Babymetal played to a sold-out Brixton O2 Academy in what was only their third ever UK performance. But before they danced and partied all holy hell out of the 5000 strong crowd, we caught up with Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal to find out about the new album and the Fox God.
It’s hard to ignore the monumental success of Babymetal since their inception at Sonisphere this summer, so when we had the chance to meet up for a second time it was a no-brainer.
Here we talk to the three-girl tour de force about the experience of playing a metal festival, how Gimme Chocolate came together and how they’re planning on celebrating Christmas – seemingly by celebrating Su-metal’s birthday (which you know will be at last 60 times more bonkers than yours).
