Titled Legend - Metal Galaxy, it was recorded over the group’s two shows at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Center in Japan on January 25 and 26 – and it’ll be released on September 9 on Blu-ray, DVD and CD.

The Blu-ray and DVD releases will include a total of 24 tracks which will be split into two performances: World Of Light and World Of Darkness.

Along with the standard edition, Legend - Metal Galaxy will also launch as The One limited edition. It’ll include a 64-page booklet titled Apocalypse and also feature interviews with Babymetal.

Last month, Metal Hammer listed the 50 greatest metal bands of all time as voted for by magazine reader  – and Babymetal were placed the top 10.

Reacting to the news, Su-Metal said: “I honestly can’t believe it, especially ‘of all time!’ It’s truly an honour to hear that people regard Babymetal in that way and it gives me more strength to do what I love. Thank you so much for the love and support!”
