New Testament: The Kids Are Alright (Napalm Death on Babymetal)

Is the Babymetal phenomenon a force for metal good or just another fad destined to fade away? Legendary Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury explains…

I first discovered Babymetal the usual way that I discover new bands – that is, by hearing people talking about them at festivals and seeing them on newsfeeds on websites; plus, with my wife being Japanese, we inevitably heard it down the grapevine from friends over there.

I like all sorts of music, so I’m not opposed to listening to anything different and when I heard Babymetal, I actually thought it was an interesting combination.

Napalm death are currently in the middle of a world tour, which ends in December in Japan
