英会話ブログ その809      Babymetal (1)

2016/05/18

Unless you've been not only listening to rock, but living under one, you've probably heard the name Babymetal.

The Japanese music trio, consisting of three young girls who perform a fusion of heavy metal and J-pop idol-style songs, have become famous worldwide in the past several years.

The members of Babymetal, Suzuka Nakamoto ("Su-metal"), Moa Kikuchi, ("Moa-metal") and Yui Mizuno ("Yui-metal") have achieved big success overseas, and are finally becoming better known in their home country.

Formed in 2010 from the idol group Sakura Gakuen by their producer Kei "Kobametal" Kobayashi, Babymetal has performed in London, NY, Paris, Germany and was the opening for Lady Gaga on her western USA tour.

In Japan, they've already headlined Yokohama Arena, Saitama Arena, Budokan and will appear at Tokyo Dome in September...

What is it about Babymetal that caused even hardcore heavy metal fans to fall in love with these girls and flash the "fox" signs at every concert ?                                            (G.K)
