Anyone familiar with BABYMETAL knows they are not too keen on making appearances outside the stage or a Tweet here or there. It appears they have now made an exception, and have appeared (if only for a second) in this song.

This is very clearly due to the fact it’s a Corey Taylor song. He is the lead singer of Slipknot, and singer and founder of Stone Sour. He, and especially his son, are known BABYMETAL fans. They first met when they played at the same festival, Chicago Open Air in 2016. He also went with his son to see their performance. No doubt this, along with Taylor’s success in the genre, helped BABYMETAL make an exception here.

Fans have joked that this is the first actually appearance singing in a “proper” music video since KARATE in 2016.

Though they did actually have a very short appearance at the end of the Starlight MV.

Here is their part:
