BABYMETAL's Backing Band, KARI BAND, Are Releasing Their Own Album
Babymetal is a controversial topic in the metal world, with people either really loving them or really not, but there is no denying the talent in the band, producing some legit heavy metal riffage for the trio of girls to sing over.
Now, Babymetal's backing band, Kami Band, are stepping into the forefront. MetalSucks reports that Amazon Japan has an album listed for release tomorrow by the trio of killer musicians. They are going by the name 仮 Band (Kari Band), which a commenter on MetalSucks points out means "or provisional band, a play on Kami Band which means God or Hair Band which is what BABYMETALs backing band is called."
The group consists of BOH on bass, Mikio Fujioka on guitar and Yuya Maeta on drums and they promise a mix of genres with some guest musicians.
The album will also be available on iTunes. Here is footage of a recent performance from the bands:
