BABYMETAL wins 5 categories in the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards
Loudwire announced BABYMETAL is the winner for the "Best Metal Album of 2016" "Best Metal Song of 2016", "Best Live Act of 2016" and "Most Devoted Fans of 2016", while Su-Metal won "Rock Goddess Of The Year" of the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards. BABYMETAL won four categories with an important difference from the other nominees, while "Most Devoted Fans of 2016" was a very close run until the end against X Japan.
Official announcement from Loudwire:
Japanese pop-metal sensation BABYMETAL are one of the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards’ biggest winners, as their fans voted them to victory in five separate categories.
The teen trio and their phenomenal backing musicians have rocketed to the top of the metal world, and in many ways, the world of music. BABYMETAL’s rabid fanbase filled the Tokyo Dome two nights in a row, so it’s no surprise the band won the Most Devoted Fans award for the second year in a row, this time edging out fellow Japanese act X Japan.
BABYMETAL’s Metal Resistance album proved the group wouldn’t go out as a one hit wonder. It kicks in hard with “Road of Resistance” and keeps moving with anthemic cuts that are criminally catchy. Metal Resistance won Best Metal Album in our latest awards, while “Karate” took home the trophy for Best Metal Song.
2016 was BABYMETAL’s year for touring, playing Wembley early in the year, appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, taking over North America, playing the Tokyo Dome and finally supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers in the UK. For BABYMETAL’s accomplishments, they’ve been voted Best Live Act. Finally, frontwoman Su-metal claimed victory in our Rock Goddess of the Year category, beating out beloved singers like Amy Lee and Cristina Scabbia.
Congratulations to BABYMETAL and their loyal fans for five victories in the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards!
