Metal Hammer Magazine reviews "Live In London" and "Live At Budokan" 

Transcription of Metal Hammer Magazine review of Live At Budokan and Live In London:


"With the mud of Leeds still caked on the heels of their Doc Martens, Babymetal continue their unrelenting quest for world domination with not one but two live double-DVDs. Opinions - generally of the frothy and extreme variety - have long calcified around Babymetal, with the majority of critics and metalheads joyfully embracing their mindblowing fusion of cartwheeling J-Pop theatricality and neck-snapping death metal brutality.


Flawlessly captured in these DVDs - and impossible to absorb in their polished, heavily edited videos - is the sheer cinematic scale of their show, a euphoric siege of hyperkinetic choreography, hallucinatory video montages, face-melting pyrotechnics and the brutal-as-fuck strafing of the Kami Band. Across all four shows, diminutive singers Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal don't simply act like they've been there before - they absolutely slay every single number, particularly 'Rondo Of Nightmare', 'Headbangeeeeeerrrrr!!!!!' and the blistering new speed metal freakout, 'Road Of Resistance'.


The sublime sight of a queue of burly British metallers in Slipknot and Maiden tees happily filing into a sold-out Brixton underscores the astronomic span of their cross-cultural appeal, and while you might not need both DVD sets, each administers a bludgeoning reminder that Babymetal are here to stay."
