Prolog for Encore

Included in the BD "LIVE - LEGEND I, D, Z, APOCALYPSE -" (released on 2013 Nov. 20).
These were the prologues for the encores in the concerts 'Legend "I"', "D", "Z", narrated with a series of painted pictures projected on the screen.

Prologue for Encore   in Legend "I"

"The Metal Resistance", the war against the big power "Idols",
has been long drawn out.
BABYMETAL resisted by wearing the corset to train for headbanging,
and by doing mosh'sh for the moment.
But "Idols" brought in new members if some members left,
ruled the regions by organizing the branches in various places,
and thus have extended their power in succession.
Considering this situation and to give BABYMETAL more power, the Fox God
sends down, as divine messengers, the strongest metal band playing the explosive roar...
The band consists of the gods, the gods of guitar, the god of bass and the god of drums.
It is the special band of the brave metallers formed for BABYMETAL.
Accompanied with this band, BABYMETAL will engage in further sacred battles.

Prologue for Encore   in Legend "D"

In A-KIBA, the sacred place for the big power "Idols",
YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL were captured.
Snake suspected them of being the leaders of "the Metal Resistance",
and interrogated them persistently to disclose their identity.
"Are you really the idols?"
"After all, we are the idols...
...DEATH!"
Oops! Their usual habit exposed that they are the metallers.
"Idols DEATH!? What a desecration!! I Condemn!! I Condemn!!"
At last they were to hang up, blamed for treason to the idols.
To save their young lives, SU-METAL stood up.
In the depth of her heart, the song was resounding that the Fox God had told her.
In the special night of fifteen, with legendary black long hair disordered around and gorgeously,
a girl fought bravely. It is her song.

Prologue for Encore   in Legend "Z"

Metal Resistance.
It is the holy war.
For the upcoming Armageddon, BABYMETAL
were going toward "the Hill of Flying V", the field for the final sacred battle.
The Fox God, presiding over the metal gods, to prepare for the final sacred battle,
sent the gods of guitar,
the god of bass,
and the god of drums
to form the strongest metal band,
and gave BABYMETAL the further power.
The time remaining is very short.
The descent of the god is never "permanent".
Finally the last chapter of the holy war begins.

These were the prologues for "Akatsuki" in the concerts 'Legend "I"' & "Z", narrated with a series of painted pictures projected on the screen, but such a prologue is not always narrated before this song.

Prologue for "AKATSUKI"   in Legend "I"

YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL fell to the darkside.
To get the metal spirits back to them, SU-METAL stood up alone.
The metal spirit became the crimson flame and enveloped SU-METAL.
And SU-METAL has changed into the Crimson Knightess.
The crimson flame burns in the jet black darkness.
Tonight SU-METAL's beat of life trembles the world.

Prologue for "AKATSUKI"   in Legend "Z"

SU-METAL was starting to notice
another self which exists in her mind.
By the power given from "the Fox God" in charge of the metal,
SU-METAL was kept within the human level,
but she was getting back her true self.
Breaking the spell put by humankind,
she was changing into the entity beyond the humanity near to the divinity.
Being beyond time and space,
SU-METAL's beat of life dyes the sky "crimson".

Prolog for Onedari DaiSakusen

Included in the BD "LIVE - LEGEND I, D, Z, APOCALYPSE -" (released on 2013 Nov. 20).

These were the prologues for "Onedari DaiSakusen" in the concerts 'Legend "I"', "D" & "Z", narrated with a series of painted pictures projected on the screen, but such a prologue is not always narrated before this song.

Prologue for "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "I"

YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL romped too much in the party of the hilarious midnight.
That night, they were tricked by the big power "Idols",
and ate the "check-it-out chocolate" which the Fox God had told them never to eat.
Suddenly,
with an anti-metal attitude saying "It's not the metal, is it?",
they change into BLACK BABYMETAL.
And, as if they are possessed by something,
singing "Yo! Yo!", they are driven to do "Ask-Dad-for-it Operation".


Prologue for "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "D"

In SU-METAL's birthday party "the special night of fifteen",
YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL romped so much.
But they should have been careful not to romp too much.
"Snake", a member of the big power "Idols", had stolen into the party.
He said, "You're super cute! Your dance is very hyper!"
"There is a super enjoyable stage in A-KIBA,
and now we're gonna have a dancing party night. Won't you come together?"
Not to be noticed being the trap of the big power "Idols",
"Snake" lured them out by the ingenious words.
Though they had been taught "Flirt, No, Absolutely" by the Fox God,
they carelessly took a "daring!" action.
A-kiba is the jerusalem for the big power "Idols".
Undergoing the baptism of the cyber-city, saying "It's not the metal, is it?" again,
they have changed into BLACK BABYMETAL.


Prologue for "Onedari DaiSakusen"   in Legend "Z"

SU-METAL was driven into the crisis
because of YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL.
Deeply sorry for that, and to revenge SU-METAL,
they alone went to A-KIBA, the jerusalem for the big power "Idols".
The Metal Resistance to be done without SU-METAL
was severer than they had imagined.
In the desperate situation, at the last moment,
they heard the oracle of the Fox God.
"When you are in a village, obey the village".
Without the neon lights, A-KIBA was dyed black,
and the deep bass resounded throughout the jet-black city.
YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL,
at last, by their own power, to save the world from the end,
into the dark heroines "BLACK BABYMETAL",
they have changed.
Once in their lifetime,
the first and the last
"Ask-Dad-for-it Operation" now begins...

Prologue for "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI"   (usual)

Why do people hurt each other?
For whom do they hurt each other?
I don't want to see your tearful face anymore.

So we stand up.
In my dream the Fox told me
we should run about with all our might.
In my dream a long-haired young man told me
"Wall of Death".

If you show us the true courage,
we will tell you the true Metal.
"Bullying, No, Absolutely"


Prologue for "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI"   in Legend "Z"

We've got the new life.
But the life can't last forever.
Not to forget this moment now,
we continue to sing.

We don't want to see your sorrowful, tearful face anymore.
We in your heart are always with you.
So we sing together.
"Bullying, No, Absolutely"


Prologue for "IJIME, DAME, ZETTAI"   (English version)

Why do people hurt each other?
Who do they hurt them for?
More than ever I do not want to see you cry anymore

So, let's stand together
In a dream THE BIG FOX taught us
You should never give up
and run the race as hard as possible
In a dream the METAL MASTER taught us
WALL OF DEATH

If you show true courage
We will show you TRUE METAL
No more bullying, forever.

  * "Seitan-sai" (聖誕祭) means "holy birth festival" (mainly used for Chiristmas).

Prologue for SU-METAL's Birthday Celebration   on 2012 Dec. 20th

"Second Impact"

It was the winter just 15 years ago
when, in the idol scene, the teen group known as "the SPEED king of Okinawa"
had a dominant influence. On December 20th of that year,
SU-METAL was born to this world.

Concurrently, on December 31st 15 years ago, the legendary band called "invincible"
ended its history at the Tokyo Dome.

The Fox God said,
"It is the birth of the new life that transcends the law of nature,
and as its cost an old life shall pass away."

Preparing for the upcoming "Metal Resistance",
SU-METAL has made many efforts in the "idol" scene.
She went to a local dance school since her childhood.
She sang "Daring!" while she was absolute cute.
She went to the growth-stage-limited school.

SU-METAL's undercover propagation in the "idol" scene
was executed steadily.

Now "the special night of fifteen" starts to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of SU-METAL's birth.
