BABYMETAL Are Releasing A Massive 10-Year Anniversary Best Of
BABYMETAL are about to celebrate 10 years as a band. In typically understated fashion, the Japanese kawaii-metallers are marking the milestone with a Best Of entitled 10 BABYMETAL Years. Sorry, a Best Of available in 10 different variants, coming on December 23. Except for variant X, the contents of which only the Fox God knows.
This is a, frankly, mind-bending amount of BABY-memorabilia. So, from the top: there’s variant 1, a basic, standard CD version, and then numbered variations where you get (deep breath…):
2: a Blu-Ray of videos
3: 10 pieces of artwork that can be used as a cover
4: a poster and a Blu-Ray featuring performance footage of fan-chosen songs
5: battle cards, a battle CD, and battlefield.
6: a flag, two Blu-Rays featuring interviews and live footage, and a photo book
7, 8 and 9: these are special SU-METAL, MOAMETAL and KOBAMETAL editions. Here’s where you need to pay attention…
“[Each] features a selection of their personal 10 best songs. In order to obtain this very special version which is not available for sale, one must first purchase any one of the initial limited version 1 – 6 which includes a randomly distributed PROPHET CARD. Each version contains 1 PROPHET CARD (PROPHET CARD S, M, or K) which has a unique serial number on it. Whichever card (PROPHET CARD S, M, or K) the purchaser received, he or she will have the privilege to obtain this very special version only if he or she correctly guesses what 10 songs were selected and the correct order.”
Got it? Cool. In other news, BABYMETAL recently released the video for BxMxC. Check it out below.
