BABYMETAL Maina Hits Sonisphere

There are dates that go down in history that historians will never forget, for BABYMETAL July 5th, 2014 will be the date that they will remember, for that is the date this Idol metal group hit the shores of Great Britain and the Sonisphere festival.

From the moment they were announced to be appearing there were cries from what is now clearly the little in numbers that this group was anything but metal and overstepping their rights by playing in the big leagues of heavy metal.

There was even some talk among us in the Idol metal genre, could this really go the distance.
A short time ago BABYMETAL walked off the main stage of Sonisphere  as concurring heroes.

Most of all BABYMETAL simply had a goodtime and do what they do best, put on a great Idol metal concert.
With this success come more questions left to be answered for the dozens of other Idol metal groups yet to taste this success as to the future of this new sub-genre of Idol.

For now BABYMETAL is leading the charge and leaving those who attended their concert today simply saying on twitter, Instagram and other social media sites the following.

“BABYMETAL, the single most enjoyable thing at Sonisphere so far. I`ve never seen so many people smiling so much at a metal festival”

“This was the most metal experience of my life” [comments posted on Instagram]
