The BABYMETAL juggernaut continues to roll without any signs of slowing down. The overriding storyline is now in its seventh ‘episode’
and for all that people complain bitterly about them through keyboards, they’re not going anywhere.
The absence of original member Yuimetal is still conspicuous, but the remaining girls – Su-metal and Moametal plus two new backing members
are still firing on all cylinders and dance their way through Gimme Choco!!, KARATE and brand new track Distortion as if their lives depend on it.
The crowd are in the palms of their hands
circles pits are called and happen, then made bigger on request, the cheers are massive
and the fun is on a level that isn’t found anywhere else. Quite what happens now is anyone’s guess, but it’ll be fun finding out.

Nothing against the musicianship of Babymetal (because it is one that shouldn’t be faulted)
but the appeal of the band is definitely the show that they put on, something they delivered to all the curious spectators.
Despite the language barrier, nothing stopped the crowd from mumbling along to the likes of ‘Gimme Chocolate!!’ and ‘Karate’.
Straying away from the Avalanche tent, and over to the Zippo Encore stage something a bit different is afoot. BABYMETAL always deliver a show, with fans thrust into a world of their design with no reasonable escape.
As the crowd grows thicker by the minute, the die-hards are clawing their way to the front to get a glimpse of this ever-growing behemoth.
Even by-passers are sucked into the lore of BABYMETAL as thousands of hands are raised in the air forming the Kitsune that, if you’re unaware of the whole deal, readily appears like a cult.
The moment smoke starts billowing out in front of the stage, and the Kami band appear in full regalia, the crowd become ignited.
Thundering along, ‘In The Name Of’ steadily builds the hype until the crowd are at a fever pitch.
That is until Su-Metal finally appears.
Then all bets are off. She sombrely walks down centre stage, closely followed by Moametal ? though a still missing Yuimetal means there are two backup dancers in her place.
Their aesthetic is darker, pointing BABYMETAL in a new direction that delves even deeper into their lore.

From this point on it’s a blur of choreographed dance moves, powering metal and most of all, belief that the world of BABYMETAL is growing into an uncontrollable beast that will, at some point, consume you.
