I have no information about this magazine other than it was listed among other publications on Amazon in Japan. But it sports a rather nice Babymetal cover in any case, and I know enough about their moves by now to spot that they were captured during the song “Road Of Resistance” by the photographer. Whatever the publication is, and maybe somebody could help us out here, it says “No. 172” in the top left corner. As for what is going on with Babymetal, they have another six concerts to go in Japan until mid October but my guess is that they are in the process of recording the next album. They just know how to keep quiet about it so it can be announced properly at a gig, which is how they do things. Who knows?

Watch “Road Of Resistance” here (14,000,000 hits and counting on YouTube).

Nice action cover

This is a good cover. Japanese publication RC World (issue) 261. You have to wonder what they are up to over there.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Well I watched Vikings Season 4 Volume 2 and they still deliver like no other show, past or present. I take my hat off to the creative team behind this Saga, it is Epic in every way imaginable.

Long may it reign.

Spitfire In Sweden

Posted: August 21, 2017 in Books, Cool stuff, General

This looks like a good read. Author Mikael Forslund´s “Spitfire In Sweden” (Mikael Forslund Produktion, 2017). Hardback, 208 pages, over 500 photographs.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

This shot was published on the Babymetal platforms today. Here you see them posing with Foo Fighters and by the looks of it they presented their new friends with a bag of Fox masks. Babymetal and Foo Fighters shared the same stage in Osaka today and they will hit Tokyo tomorrow, as they co headline the Summer Sonic Festivals on the biggest stages this year.

Short Babymetal clip of the Osaka show here.

Well I mentioned Sweden Rock Magazine (issue) 8 2017 the other day but here is the full blown cover, and I think it is one of the best that they have ever had. Very nice Ronnie James Dio cover.

Top notch.

Babymetal will co-headline the Summer Sonic Festivals in Osaka (Saturday) and Tokyo (Sunday) with Foo Fighters this weekend. This will be the sixth year that Babymetal perform at the classic festival, and the climb from the smallest stage to the biggest is rock history in itself. The girls presented the Babymetal Summer Sonic t-shirt on their official platforms today. Fans will be aware that Babymetal have specially designed t-shirts for many of their concerts, and that they sell like crazy. They still have the official record for most sold merchandise at Wembley from last year. As for the coolness factor, take a look at this shot that popped up on Japanese blogs today…

Say no more!
