Today I will spend the day in good company watching Babymetal DVDs, eating pizza and downing a few beers. How will they (Babymetal) go down with the yet undecided? Well, we shall see. I have shown DVD stuff to people in the last week or so and it would seem that about half of them is sucked in immediately, demanding to know more on the spot. The rest look like they are perplexed, perhaps by both the loud music and the concept. I guess the interesting thing is that you do get a visible reaction by so many people.
The last time I did this sort of thing was a long time ago when I discovered Nightwish quite early on in their career. I turned some oldtimers on to them on the spot showcasing a five track video of them performing live. Babymetal is another matter, but I know they have enormous potential to draw people in.
Watch them perform “Karate” at the Donington Download Festival in the UK 2016 here.
