«Metal Resistance»: This is what the new BABYMETAL sounds like

Metal Resistance Babymetal

Today April 1, Zorro Day, has gone on sale 'Metal Resistance', the new album by the Japanese BABYMETAL, a work that although sometimes sounds a bit more adult than his eponymous album, 'Babymetal' (2014), once again gets you to put your hands on your head with that great mix of extra strawberry fuchsia J-pop with the most powerful metal ... even more than in the previous album.

If there is something that is noticed from the first listen, it is that, the architects behind SU-METAL, YUIMETAL and MOAMETAL, that world tour in which they have rubbed shoulders with the flower and birthplace of metal has done them super well, taking a thousand influences from here and there to make almost all the songs on 'Metal Resistance' sound different, something that already happened with 'Babymetal', but now with that point a little - and just a little - more adult.

In 'Metal Resistance' the music is no longer so Baby

What does stand out a lot in 'Metal Resistance' is the almost total absence of songs in the same vein as 'Gimme Choco !!', 'Doki Doki Morning' or 'Line!', Since that's where the biggest change lies. in this new BABYMETAL album, and that is music is not so Baby, although it does waste "metal" and also the same quality at the vocal level to which SU-METAL has us accustomed.

Those looking for that side of BABYMETAL loaded with wild riffs mixed with electronic sequences and melodies soaked in sour strawberry - their best side - will fully enjoy 'Awadama Fever', 'GJ!' or 'YAVA!'; for those who appreciate that step forward that they offer us in this new album, they will continue to enjoy 'Road of Resistance' and 'KARATE', to which they will add 'Amore' -which almost seems like a continuation of 'Road of Resistance'- and' Tales of the Destinies', one of the most surprising follies - and my favorite - of 'Metal Resistance'.
