VIDEO: "MEGITSUNE", the New PV from BABYMETAL

New single to be released on June 19th

Although a few days old now, we’d be amiss to not share the latest video from Japan’s preeminent J-pop metal trio BABYMETAL with you…especially since we’ve been posting stories about the upcoming release of the group’s highly anticipated new single MEGITSUNE for nigh on several months now.

 

The result might just be BABYMETAL’s most ambitious musical adventure to date: combining frantic electro idol pop, not only with the expected heavy metal overtones, but with traditional Japanese instrumentation to boot.  It is sure to win fans in some quarters and cause much head scratching in others, but the result is a definite milestone in the strange saga of BABYMETAL.
