    I didn't start listening until after Yui left, so that is a bummer but I have tickets to see them in KC and I can't wait. They nailed this song, and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go and how they are handling the change in line-up...whether they keep it like in this vid or eventually seek a permanent replacement for Yui..
    Either way, I can't wait to see them live.
    Edit: Screw it, bought tickets for Chicago too \m/ \m/

    They had a good run but now they are older and broken apart. This band didnt have much future to begin with, but they were really unique and powerful while they were at the top.

      They are far from "over." The core of Babymetal is Su's amazing voice and the Kami Band's incredible musicianship. This hasn't diminished, but increased. They are doing their first headline arena show in the US later this year, coinciding with the coming release of their 3rd album. Yes, some pseudo-fans got caught up in the cute hype of Babymetal, but real fans know it's about their music. Every one of their new songs is solid as F, as they continue to challenge themselves with new styles of Metal. You have not seen the best of Babymetal yet.

    • Rick Wagner
      Rick Wagner 12 days ago +4

      @r0b690 Unfortunately Yui left the group last October for health reasons.
      And guitarist Mikio Fujioka passed away in early 2018.
      However, BABYMETAL continues with Su and Moa at the core of the group.
      Any band would be lucky to have guitarists like Takayoshi Ohmura, Leda Cygnus and ISAO who are still members of BABYMETAL's Kami Band along with bassist BOH and drummer Hideki Aoyama.
      And "broken apart"?
      BABYMETAL have big concerts coming up in Japan with two shows at Yokohama Arena in June, as well as Glastonbury Festival, a return to O2 Academy Brixton and two special 'Legend M' shows celebrating Moa's 20th birthday in July, SUPER SLIPPA (Taiwan) and Summer Sonic (Tokyo & Osaka) in August, and a 20 city tour of the USA in September and October, including their first ever arena concert in the United States at the LA Forum.
      This is their biggest US Tour ever.
      Sounds like the opposite of "broken apart" to me.
      Also their third album will be released this year. : )

    Playing to a British crowd and getting such a great reaction is just amazing, especially for a Japanese band, we're not really used to foreign lyrics, and most metal heads I know look down on dancing and miming, sometimes to extremes, so i'm glad babymetal did well.

      @Roy Milla ISAO is playing an eight-stringer, Takayoshi Ohmura has a seven-string guitar, and BOH is rocking a six-string bass.
      Add in those double bass kicks on Hideki Aoyama's drums and you've got a nice Kami Band going.
      Ohmura usually plays his signature ESP custom, but also played one of the guitars he inherited from Mikio Fujioka (RIP) during this tour.

      mkrlexus83 ..
      It's closer to Kowai (scary) style than Kawaii (cute)style what they presented in the 2018 Tour particularly in the Japan/Aussie part, like you well said Goth fashion is for all ages (and it's not just in Japan). Anyway the music is still great in their live shows (especially in Sumetal solo songs) but painful to hear in the parts here Yuimetal was supposed to sing . The new songs range from just OK to good but not good enough for my top 10, to be continued this year. i hope with their return to the light (enough of cryptic BS darkness already).

    • mkrlexus83
      mkrlexus83 Month ago +1

      @FloppyHares They could have done something like this instead of covering hairs and legs like they do now, This style was their own and as the video shows it can be worn perfectly even by a 40yo woman and it still rips your eyes! LOL Gothic Lolita does not mean always childish. They could have even chance style but at least stay girlish.

    • FloppyHares
      FloppyHares Month ago +1

      @mkrlexus83 Like the Imgur album that Rick posted shows you, they changed it up quite a bit over the years. But, apart from the costumes for special occasions, it was all "Gothic Lolita", generally speaking. As is the style in the video that you posted. And it wasn't Amuse that changed their look; the girls themselves wanted to get away from the childish, young girl look.

    I haven't seen or heard anything about or from Baby Metal in over 5 months... whats' going on???? I Know Yui is not with them as for now... and we all hope she comes back...

    • FloppyHares
      FloppyHares Month ago +1

      @Mike Kollin's - Crack The Female Code Yes, hit up the BABYMETAL sub on Reddit for all the latest news. 2018 was a difficult year for BABYMETAL, with the death of their guitarist Mikio Fujioka at the start of 2018 and them basically being in a holding pattern, waiting for Yui's return. And, yes, unfortunately Yui decided to leave BABYMETAL in October last year. However, they've stated that they're ready to start a new chapter and Su and Moa have expressed that they're still fully committed to BABYMETAL and are rearing to go. They've announced several shows in Japan, in England (Brixton O2 Academy) and their first stadium show in the US (The Forum, LA) already. And there's a new single coming out next month and a new album this year. ;-)

      Its true that they haven't uploaded anything new on TheXvid. However they have announced they will release a new album this year, do six live performances (probably more will be announced) and recently a interview with Su and Moa has been published in PMC magazine. It's also rumored they will release a new single called Elevator Girl on May 10th. If you want the latest news or just want to pas time waiting for news I would like to recommend the Babymetal subreddit www. reddit. com/r/BABYMETAL.
