We saw Babymetal last week with a bunch of metalheads and had a great time. But, the fans in the UK got an even bigger treat. They got to hear a new song!
Vince Neilstein from MetalSucks explains the mythology of the new track:
When the Babymetal show in NYC last week finally came to a close after nearly 90 scintillating minutes, the on-stage screen that had been playing videos explaining the Babymetal “story” between songs teased the following: “Metal Resistance Episode III: Coming 2015.”
A nearly five-minute video introduces the concept of the song in typically Babymetallian mythological character — future humans have become so ensconced in technology that we’re all losing our souls, and only Babymetal can save us all! — after which the three Babymetallers descend from the platform and begin the song.
It looks like episode III came early in the form of this new live bootleg. The song sounds like Babymetal meets Dragonforce, and we are not complaining.
