BABYMETAL – Death (デス – Desu!)

Time for another adventure in BABYMETAL music. This time, I’m going off the beaten path by sharing one of the limited edition songs from BABYMETAL called Death. This one is pure death metal, or as pure as an idol-metal group can get.  First up, here’s the song from the LE single.



Up until 1:15, the song has a beautifully haunting, Gothic feel to it. Then, the metal kicks in full steam with a very Metallica One feel for a bit. By the way, if you couldn’t tell, they are spelling out BABYMETAL.  Japanese really haven’t mastered English phonetics. ^_~

Here is a live versions of the song, which kind of amuse me.  There’s something about seeing young idol girls performing a death metal song that cracks me up, but in a good way. I think this one below is the on the LE disc, but don’t quote me on that.



It is a shame that this song isn’t on iTunes. However, were the Japanese were to allow that to happen, that would break the otaku-fleecing system the Japanese have, whereby they get otaku to double and triple dip for the same songs on different discs, but with LE ones having unique items, such as a song not found anywhere else.

Anyway, the song does tickle my ear and is another of my favorite BABYMETAL tunes. ^_^
