Babymetal Played ‘Syncopation’ Live at the White Mass and Here’s the Audio

I’m sure that many of you have seen/heard this by now, but Babymetal‘s event in Osaka on Monday included the first-ever live performance of the not-released-outside-of-Japan-until-like-last-week “Syncopation.” I grabbed this from the Mexican fans group on Facebook, but it’s finding its way just about everywhere.

By the magic of the Internet, though the old video was scrubbed from Facebook, this one now exists from Red Night!

I am not only extremely high on this song, but think might be their best-ever song (it at least belongs in the conversation); that it’s also one of the most idol metal things they’ve recorded is, I think, kind of a big deal, too.

Maybe that can take some of the bad taste out of today, too.
