Japanese metal band Babymetal have been confirmed to make their Download bow. 

The J-pop flagbearers conjure a live show unrivalled by many; they tantalise the moshpit with innocence until it's engaged by a torrent of hyper-force riffs like on 'Karate' from recent album Metal Resistance.  

Last year they joined Dragonforce at Donington Park for a performance of 'Gimme Chocolate, but now they're impacting the main-stage on their own accord when the festival lands in June.
