Last year BABYMETAL concluded their 10-year journey which culminated in the celebration of the revered Japanese metal band with the vinyl release of their retrospective album, 10 BABYMETAL Years. Later they released a cryptic video that announced BABYMETAL would be “sealed” from the world until further notice.

Today, BABYMETAL break the seal, making their return to Earth. Their official website has revealed a LEGEND MAP depicting all of BABYMETAL‘s future activities, including the news that BABYMETAL‘s first concept album THE OTHER ONE will be released worldwide on Friday, 24th March, 2023.
