BABYMETAL, the heavy metal offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and death metal, will release its first-ever concert DVD and Blu-ray, “Live ~Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse~”, on November 20 (Blu-ray) and October 19 (limited-edition DVD box). The set will contain footage of the band’s performances at Shibuya O-East (October 2012), Akasaka Blitz (December 2012) and Zepp Tokyo (February 2013).

A trailer for “Live ~Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse~” can be seen below.

BABYMETAL‘s “Megitsune” single was released on June 19. The song is said to combine traditional Japanese instruments with metal overtones and an enka ballad to create a festive sound. The theme of the track is “women are born actresses.” Four different versions were made available for fans to purchase: a limited “Tsu”, limited “Ki”, and a limited “Ne” edition, as well as a less expensive regular edition. The limited versions come with bonus videos from the BABYMETAL live events that were held from 2012 to early 2013.

BABYMETAL recently embarked on the “Death Match Tour 2013” and was accompanied by a “full metal band.”

In the spring of 2013, Suzuka Nakamoto graduated from junior high school and therefore had to “graduate” from the group SAKURA GAKUIN (which consists of girls of up to junior high). However, it was decided by the management that BABYMETAL would not dissolve and would continue their activities as a band.

BABYMETAL released its first major single, “Ijime, Dame, Zettai”, on January 9.

BABY METAL is:

Su-Metal – Vocals and Dance
Moametal – Screamer and Dance
Yuimetal – Screamer and Dance

On August 25, The Mighty Z of Capital Chaos TV conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Cristiano Trionfera of Italian symphonic death metallers FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, California. You can now watch the chat below. Also available is performance footage of the San Francisco concert.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE‘s new album, “Labyrinth”, was released on August 16 in Europe and August 20 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was mixed and mastered by Stefano “Saul” Morabito. The cover artwork was once again created by Colin Marks, who was also responsible for several neoclassical pieces of art in the massive inlay.

Comments FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE‘s Francesco Paoli: “‘Labyrinth’ is THE album for FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. It’s the perfect combination of all our strong points with the best production we’ve ever had. It’s definitely the most FLESHGOD thing we’ve ever thought with the most FLESHGOD riffs, lyrics, melodies, drumparts, solos, etc. We went deep inside the core of this music, we broke it, and we finally unleashed these eleven songs.”

Added Tommaso Riccardi: “The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it. We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticolous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We’re sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are.”
