Veteran heavy-metal fans weren’t sure what to make of Babymetal when the Japanese pop-metal phenoms first broke outside their native scene in 2013. Some dismissed them as a novelty, but the energetic act’s infectious live shows have helped win over many of their detractors. The core trio of teen singers — Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal — are just as much the manic ball of energy live as they portray on records such as 2016’s Metal Resistance. It also helps that once you poke through the glossier pop-music presentation of the vocal trio’s performance, Babymetal’s backing musicians, the Kami Band, are capable of throwing down Slayer-esque speed-metal riffs that lend substance to the sheen. That combination results in every person in the room clapping and singing along with the choruses, an experience akin to attending an Iron Maiden concert in a non-English speaking country.
