BABYMETAL To Make UK Debut At Sonisphere Music Festival 2014

Sonisphere Music Festival have confirmed that Japanese idol girl group BABYMETAL will be making their UK debut, performing a set in the Bohemia tent on Sunday 6th July 2014.

Eldest band member SU-METAL (sixteen year old Suzuka Nakamoto) said:
“I am so honored that we are confirmed to play Sonisphere Festival UK,”
She continued:
“There are so many different types of artists playing this festival but I hope to deliver a one and only, unique style metal –BABYMETAL – even to those who will see us for the very first time. This will be our very first time in the UK, which makes us nervous, yet excited just imagining what type of people will come and see us, what sort of show it will end up being, and whether the audience will enjoy our show. We’ll hopefully get to see Metallica-san’s performance again after witnessing them at Summer Sonic festival in Japan which we are very excited about.”
You can BUY TICKETS from the Sonisphere website. The festival is headlined by The Prodigy, Iron Maiden and Metallica.


Formed in 2010, BABYMETAL started out as a subunit of the idol group Sakura Gakuin, releasing their first video in 2011 "Doki DokiMorning". They described themselves as Kawaii Metal.

Lady Gaga Chooses Crayon Pop As Support Act

Lady Gaga has revealed that K-Pop girl group Crayon Pop will be the opening act on her tour "artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball".

Their "straight-five engine dance" was copied and parodied the world over, and since then, Crayon Pop's profile has gone through the roof!

Girls' Generation - "Mr.Mr." New MV

Girls' Generation recently released a new video for their latest song "Mr.Mr." The song looks to continue to cement their status as South Korea's most successful girl group. The song features yet another infectiously catchy chorus, coupled with a slickly edited video, and new dance routine. I'm a fan of it!

What do you think? How does it compare to previous releases?

Super Sonico Snack Time Special Figure by FuRyu

Standing at 128mm (approximately 5") tall, FuRyu's Super Sonico Snack Time Special Figure is a prize figure that was released in November 2013. I managed to get hold of one back in mid-January, but have only just gotten around to reviewing it.

Here are some box shots, and what's inside!

Click here to buy on J-List!


There are loads of different Sonico figures out there, so if like me, your wallet won't stretch to buying every figure you like the look of, it can sometimes be hard to choose which ones to buy.

I went for this one for a number of reasons. First of all, it's pretty inexpensive compared to most other figures of the same size (prize figures tend to be fairly cheap), and doesn't really skimp on the quality.
