Last year BABYMETAL were “sealed” from the world after a successful 10-year journey. In April 2022, ‘The Other One‘ restoration project began to recover the BABYMETAL we never knew existed within a virtual world called the METALVERSE. A total of 10 songs have been discovered within ‘The Other One‘ restoration project, with each song representing a unique theme based on ten separate parallel worlds that they have discovered.
One of the discovered 10 parallel worlds is MIRROR and their focus track ‘Mirror Mirror‘ centres around this theme. “Mirror, mirror on the wall…“, this song embodies a parallel world where the world inside the mirror and the world of reality go back and forth. Is what you see in the mirror your true self or the self you wish to be?
BABYMETAL recently performed at PIA ARENA MM. Their 1st day was named BLACK NIGHT and their 2nd day was named CLEAR NIGHT. At their previous show, they conveyed that together with the departure into a new world, a new metal will be born. Following these shows in Japan, they will be supporting Sabaton on their UK and Europe tour in April and May. And from May onward, BABYMETAL will embark on their BABYMETAL World Tour 2023 in which they will headline for the first time in Asia as well as Australia. We will continue to see what the future will unfold for BABYMETAL.
‘Mirror Mirror‘ follows previous singles ‘Light and Darkness‘, ‘METAL KINGDOM‘, ‘Divine Attack – Shingeki –‘, and ‘Monochrome‘. One of the discovered 10 parallel worlds is THRONE, and this third single centres around this theme. It is a powerful anthem ushering in the beginning of a new era while also representing the power and courage to step forward into uncharted territory. The track conveys imagery of one rising powerfully from the throne of silence, with a suitable fanfare announcing this new beginning.
BABYMETAL will be making a return to the live scene next week alongside SABATON and Lordi on their UK and EU tour.
