The Fox God's third arrival is upon us as world-conquering kawaii metal heroes Babymetal have unleashed their new album, Metal Galaxy. And if you’re looking for the best Babymetal merch to celebrate this new release, you’ve come to the right place.

Babymetal have become one of the most unique and recognisable acts in modern music thanks to their deft combination of K-pop and blistering metal; to say it has struck such a chord with fans around the globe is an understatement.

With Metal Galaxy being the first album since Yuimetal left the band last year, there's now high expectations on the shoulders of Su-metal and Moametal. But with the Fox God's blessing – honestly we have no idea what this whole Fox God thing is about, but Babymetal seem to love it – both Metal Galaxy and its subsequent world tour (which hits UK shores in February) should further cement the band's place among metal's elite.

Of course, with every new album comes a bigger swathe of new gear, from Babymetal t-shirts and new album vinyl to stick on your turntable, to Funko Pop! and unusual fan-made jewellery. We’ve narrowed down our list of the best Babymetal merch to these 10 picks, but there's an abundance out there in the metal galaxy for you to explore.

2. Babymetal Skull Sword t-shirt

Because you can never have too many black t-shirts, right?

It's a black t-shirt!
Machine washable
Sweet design

There are a plethora of Babymetal t-shirts, ranging from indecipherable death metal style logos to anime and computer game-inspired designs. However, this one featuring a minimalist design of cute skulls and a massive sword is one of our favourites. It's not too 'out there', but it stamps your allegiance to the Fox God clearly. Plus it's black, so there's that.

3. Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal

Learn the lore of the band and the Fox God with this unique Babymetal book

It’s a cool read
One for fantasy fans
Become a Babymetal expert
Only if you loathe reading

Written by the esteemed Prophet of the Fox God, this book chronicles the band's origins – and they’re far wilder than most acts who simply started jamming together. In Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal, you can follow the Japanese trio as they attempt to defeat the forces of darkness by assuming various forms throughout history.

We're not sure if it's entirely true, but one thing's for sure, The Dirt this isn't!

4. Babymetal Blu-Ray: Live In London

Re-live one of Babymetal's most iconic gigs yet

Witness the birth of British Babymetal mania
Get a taste of what they’re like live
Ace rendition of Road to Resistance
Mostly only features first album tracks

With two discs taken from the band's sold out Forum and O2 Academy Brixton shows 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.

5. Babymetal Funko Pop! Vinyl

Pledge your allegiance to the Fox God with this rare set of Babymetal Funkos

An instant collector's set
Ace detailing on each figure
All three Babymetal Funkos are here
Rare items so they’re expensive

Next up in our best Babymetal merch guide is one of the rarest too. You see, although most rock and metal recipients of Funko Pop! Vinyls are established legends, the Babymetal trio were deemed worthy enough to join them. These big-headed miniature figures are collectible enough as it is, but unsurprisingly the Babymetal Funkp Pop editions flew off the shelves upon release, making those remaining difficult to find and rather pricey.

Halloween is coming up soon, but even if it wasn't you don't need an excuse to wear one of the Fox God masks that the Babymetal members wear during Megitsune? There are some pretty expensive replicas out there, but this one is an ideal option to kick-start your cosplay set, especially if you plan on throwing it out to the crowd afterwards.

7. Babymetal merch Kami Band badges

The best Babymetal merch for showing the Kami Band some appreciation too

Handmade band merch
One badge per band member
Easy to attach to bags and clothing
US shipping times vary

While Su and Moametal take front and centre, it's their backing Kami band that are delivering the killer metal licks of the likes of Karate and Megitsune. It's cool, then, that they get to take some of the glory with these fan-made pixelated badges of the four members, including late guitarist Mikio Fujioka who passed away in early 2018.
