Brazilian legends and indisputable masters Ratos De Porão (or simply RDP) have been commanding the punk / hardcore / crossover / thrash four-way scene since 1981, releasing so far 15 studio albums and several other efforts! Despite the changing trends and tastes, the band has kept and keeps holding the Pole Position, remaining resolutely uncompromising both musically and politically since the very beginning! The band’s latest album “Século Sinistro” (2014, via Alternative Tentacles) is a real crossover thrash masterpiece of the ’80s with the taste of modern hardcore of our days! In spite of their long successful career, today the band is more active and hungry than ever and ready to deliver blast to their loyal fans while conquering new territories.

Currently being rapturously received by UK audiences on Red Hot Chili Peppers mammoth arena tour of the UK, the news further cements what looks to be an incredible start to 2017 for Babymetal, which also includes supporting Guns N’ Roses in Japan in January.
“We’ve looked up to Metallica for so long and to be able to join them on their tour is a dream come true. It will be our first performance for 2017 so we are really looking forward to receiving a lot of good energy from them to kick off the new year!!”
“I am just so thrilled at the amazing recent news of being able to join such big bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns N’ Roses, and now Metallica!! I just can’t keep up! Metallica is such an important part of what Babymetal does. I feel that we were able to make it this far all thanks to Metallica-san! It’s still so unbelievable to be able to play with them and I’m incredibly happy! Very excited for 2017!”
“It is such an honour to be able to join the Metal Master Metallica on their tour! We’ve been blessed to be able to join many different artists up to this point and we are very excited to see what we can learn next from Metallica. I hope we are able to absorb as much as possible from our Metal Master! Looking forward to learning new and unimaginable things from them!!”
The announcement comes ahead of the release of their ‘Live At Wembley’ album, which is released this Friday 9th December via earMUSIC, and marks great piece of news in what has been a massively successful year for the band.
Summer saw them perform at the main stage of Download festival in June – but not before scooping a Kerrang! Award for Best Live Band, with July seeing the girls pair up with metal god and Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford at the Alternative Press Magazine Awards for a once in a lifetime live collaboration.
September brought another UK award for Best Live Act, this time courtesy of the Association Of Independent Music, just a couple of weeks before their biggest headline shows to date; Babymetal attracted 110,000 people over two nights at the huge Tokyo Dome in Japan.
Babymetal recently announced the release of a new ‘Live At Wembley’ album (December 9th via earMUSIC). With a carefully selected tracklisting, the CD captures the spectacular performance recorded at Babymetal’s first ever UK Arena show, 'Babymetal World Tour 2016 kicks off at The SSE Arena, Wembley’. The KKKK rated album was described by Kerrang! Magazine, who last week gave the band their first Kerrang! cover, “proof of what a devastating live force they are”
