[NEWS] BABYMETAL Continues to Rock the West
BABYMETAL, a Heavy Metal sub unit of the Japanese idol group Sakura Gakuin, continues to add new fans in the West. Most recently, the two most legendary Robs of Heavy Metal came over to the fold.

Horror-rocker Rob Zombie raved about them in a Minneapolis 93x radio station interview concerning the Northern Invasion Festival of May 14-15, 2016. Mr. Zombie said, "I saw them the other day for the first time...I just loved it, it was like nothing I had ever seen before...Leave it to the Japanese to find a way to make death metal cute. But it was awesome...It's the most bizarre thing. It's totally worth watching, it's so good.".

After posting a backstage photo with BABYMETAL online, Zombie defended the group from the criticism of some of his fans, responding "They roll harder than you" and "these three girls had more energy than 90 percent of the bands we play with".

On July 18, 2016, at the Alternative Press Music Awards in Columbus, Ohio, Judas Priest's lead singer Rob Halford joined BABYMETAL to contribute to their covers of Priest's "Painkiller" and "Breaking the Law". Afterwards, Halford said, "BABYMETAL give a thousand percent just like Priest. They're leading the charge into the new frontier of heavy metal."

While it is typically a red flag when a Jpop group is approved by the West, in this exceptional case, it may be viewed in a positive light since it involves the few pockets of resistance (Metal Resistance!) left in that industry. Rob Zombie has made no small contribution to horror and sci-fi with his music and comic book series, and Judas Priest has long been well-received in Japan. The killer-mecha songs "Electric Eye" and "Metal Gods" usually get played early in their Japanese concerts.

In short, these two legends of Heavy Metal have found kindred spirits in BABYMETAL. Maybe Rob Zombie has finally found his LIIVVIIINGGG DEEAAADDD GIIIIRRRRRLLLLLSSSSSSSS!

Looking ahead, BABYMETAL is now scheduled to perform on the Red Hot Chili Peppers UK Tour, with seven stops from December 5-15, 2016. They previously supported Lady Gaga on her “ArtRave: The Artpop Ball” 2014 Tour.

[NEWS] C-ute to Follow Berryz and Disband
Jpop fans are still drying their tears from March 3, 2015, when Berryz Kobo's "indefinite hiatus" became a sad reality. As the seven-girl group has not worked together since, and have dispersed in varying directions, it may now be assumed to be a "definite hiatus".

H!P fans could comfort themselves in knowing that The Airi Suzuki Group...err C-ute...was still releasing new music. Since the Berryz breakup, they had added three singles and a new studio album. Yet shortly after the 10th anniversary of their first single, Massara Blue Jeans, the dreaded news has come that they too will call it quits.

C-ute has announced their intended dissolution in June 2017, after a final concert in Saitama Super Arena.

On the positive side, the H!P group Buono! is releasing a new single on September 21, 2016, titled "So La Si Do ~Nee Nee~". Buono! of course features C-ute's star Airi Suzuki and 2 of 3 stars of the late Berryz Kobo, Momoko Tsugunaga and Miyabi Natsuyaki. One wonders if the other Berryz star, Risako Sugaya, was omitted for weight gain and/or bad behavior up to the time of Buono!'s formation in August 2007.
