Babymetal voted Metal Hammer magazine cover of the year

The Kawaii princesses come out on top in our cover of the year poll

Over the Christmas period Metal Hammer readers have been voting for their favourite magazine cover of 2015 and Babymetal has won with an overwhelming majority.

In 2015 we released 13 issues with the biggest and hottest names in metal gracing the cover – Iron Maiden, Slayer, Parkway Drive and Slipknot to name a few. But when we asked the Metal Hammer online community to vote for their top magazine cover of the year it came as no surprise that the Fox God's representatives on Earth have claimed the number one spot. 

The magazine itself has long since sold out, so congratulations if you managed to snap up a copy! You can read the cover story below though...
