Professionally filmed video footage of BABYMETAL's May 26 performance at the MetRock 2013 festival in Tokyo, Japan can be seen below.
BABYMETAL is 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.
BABYMETAL's "Megitsune" single was released on June 19. The song is said to combine traditional Japanese instruments with metal overtones and an enka ballad to create a festive sound. The theme of the track is "women are born actresses." Four different versions were made available for fans to purchase: a limited "Tsu", limited "Ki", and a limited "Ne" edition, as well as a less expensive regular edition. The limited versions come with bonus videos from the BABYMETAL live events that were held from 2012 to early 2013.
BABYMETAL recently embarked on the "Death Match Tour 2013" and was accompanied by a "full metal band."
BABYMETAL released its first major single, "Ijime, Dame, Zettai", on January 9.
