BabyMetal Win Best New Act in 4th Annual Loudwire Music Awards
With the release of their self-titled debut album in early 2014, BabyMetal took over the world of metal in unique and captivating fashion. In a runaway victory, BabyMetal took in over 58 percent of the vote for Best New Artist of 2014, accumulating more votes than the nine other nominees combined.
Islander, who won Best Rock Album of 2014 with 'Violence & Destruction,' took in a respectable 23 percent of the vote, but BabyMetal blew away the other nominees with ease.
BabyMetal were already massive in their native Japan, but 2014 is when Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal took over the world. With their immensely talented backing band, the youthful trio toured heavily, performing to sold-out audiences around the globe. The BabyMetal girls may be the hardest working little rockers out there, and the band's one-of-a-kind live show has been immortalized in their 'Live at Budokan: Red Night' 2015 DVD.
BabyMetal is an extremely polarizing group, but we can't wait to hear what the act comes out with next. Congrats to BabyMetal on being voted the Best New Act of 2014! Stay tuned to Loudwire for all your BabyMetal updates.
