Newlyweds Make Entrance to Babymetal Song, Bring Their Own Flags
A newlywed couple's first entrance in public is a big deal and something that requires plenty of thought and a bit of creativity. This recently married Japanese couple elected to recreate a routine part of Babymetal's live show set to the song "Road of Resistance."
In the clip below, which was posted on Twitter, the scene is set as a series of curtains blocked off a wall of glass windows and doors, where the couple waited outside for their cue. As the music began, the curtains were pulled, revealing the bride and groom, each of whom were holding custom black flags, one of them bearing a Babymetal-styled logo that says "God Metal."
Slowly making their way into the hall, in the same fashion as Babymetal do onstage when they perform "Road to Resistance," they were greeted by the warm reception of their guests, who cheered and chanted as the moment continued.
In surprisingly related news, it was only a couple weeks ago that we saw footage of a wedding party moshing to Slayer's "Angel of Death" at a ceremony.
Back to Babymetal, the band just released their third full length, Metal Galaxy. The stateside success of the record saw Babymetal become the first Asian act to hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart. Metal Galaxy also outsold its predecessor, 2016's Metal Resistance, 28,000 equivalent units to 13,000 respectively.
