Future Asian & Pacific History Month: Babymetal's Ever-Expanding Domination

Fuse is celebrating Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month by looking at a variety of rising forces who are creating Future Asian and Pacific History before our eyes. While Babymetal's global takeover has been in full force for sometime now, the group's latest accolades and how they've dealt with their recent success all prove why they're truly here to stay.

The Japanese pop-metal trio released their second full-length album Metal Resistance last April leading the group to score a Top 40 album when it debuted at No. 39 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The LP was their most cohesive—not to mention accessible with their English song "The One"—to date and proved how far the ladies can take their unexpected musical style. Yet like any successful act, there were some unfortunate moments (like being rudely interrupted while accepting Best Live Band at the 2016 Kerrang! Awards or when haters attacked a photo of them with Rob Zombie) but fans and artists alike came to their defense with Rob even delivering a major compliment saying Babymetal has "more energy than 90 percent of the bands we play with." All the while, Su-metal, Yuimetal and Moametal (who you can get to know a little better in the video above) have always acted in a respectful, dignified manner and focused on pushing forward with their careers and not any drama in their lives.
