BabyMetal Dolls Coming Soon
Metal and rock fans love collecting everything they can to show off their favorite bands and taste in music on the whole. From extensive record collections, CDs, concert memorabilia, bobblehead dolls, and so much more, there's a lot to display. Now fans of Japanese metal sensation BabyMetal can join in on the fun!
Each of the three singers, Su-Metal, Moametal, and Yuimetal will be released in a caricature version doll from toy company Funko.
BabyMetal have been active since 2010, but really started to explode in 2013 with the release of popular singles like "Megitsune." The band began to play larger shows in Japan as their popularity began to skyrocket. Their fusion of pop music with three teenage girls sharing vocal duties backed by roaring heavy metal and a spectacle of a choreographed live performance, the band gained traction in the U.S. as well.
2014 saw the release of the band's debut eponymous album, which hit No. 187 on the Billboard 200. Since then the band have gone on not only to dazzle metal audiences, but pop crowd as well. Their style blends well with both genres, which landed them an opening spot with Lady Gaga. Gaga is a self-professed metalhead, so BabyMetal was a perfect fit for the mega pop star.
In may of this year, the act released a live video for the new song "Road of Resistance." The song features a collaboration from Dragonforce axemen Herman Li and Sam Totman, who had been working on parts for the song all the way back in 2013. Showcasing BabyMetal's relationship with the power metal heavyweights, they made a guest appearance with Dragonforce at Download Festival, delivering their hit song "Gimme Chocolate!!" to the crowd.
