Kawaii metal heroes Babymetal unleashed their latest studio album Metal Galaxy back in 2019 – ushering in a new era for the Japanese phenomenon.

They've seen their popularity soar dramatically since the launch of their self-titled debut album back in 2014, selling out arenas, not only in the homeland, but across Europe and North America.

In the process, Babymetal have become one of the most recognisable acts in modern metal thanks to their intricate fusion of catchy J-pop and face-melting riffs.

Metal Galaxy was, of course, the group's first album since Yuimetal left the band in 2019, but even despite losing one of their core members, it hasn't stopped the Fox God's finest from blazing a trail across the world.

With every new release comes a bigger swathe of new gear from any band – and Babymetal are no different. There's Babymetal t-shirts, coloured vinyl to stick on your record player, to hugely popular Funko Pop! figures and unusual fan-made jewellery. 

In fact, there's so much stuff around that it can be a bit daunting keeping up. So we've decided to sift through the ever-growing list and select some of the best Babymetal merch around.

Absolutely nothing

There are a plethora of Babymetal t-shirts, ranging from indecipherable death metal style logos to anime designs. However, this is our pick of the bunch, showing the trio in their Metal Resistance guise in a striking 8-bit retro design. It's not too 'out there', but it stamps your allegiance to the Fox God clearly. Plus it's black, so there's that.

With two discs taken from the band's sold out Forum and O2 Academy Brixton shows in London in 2014, this Blu-ray captures when the phenomenon of three K-pop metal stars truly announced themselves to the British scene. Sadly it's limited to tracks from the first album, until a triumphant new rendition of Road Of Resistance ends the Brixton gig to a rapturous reception.

Not one for rocking out to

OK, something a little different, but bear with us. While we all love listening to Babymetal with the volume cranked up, this CD is decidedly more laid back – as a range of Babymetal tracks have been given a lullaby makeover. Expect to fall asleep to the gentle and soothing sounds of Gimme Chocolate!!, Karate, Road Of Resistance and more.
