Good evening Babymetalheads! So many people in Japan have the new album and i was lucky enough to hear the album today. Here is my review:
Road Of Resistance: Now this one has been out for a while and I think all fans know it. Dragonforce x Babymetal is all you need to know here, a blistering start to the album.
Karate: The most recent single and MV to be released Karate packs a punch for sure with a catchy chorus, killer riffs and loads of Seiya Soiyas. I would still call this the appetiser of whats to come though.
Awadama Fever: Now this one has been floating around for a while now but now I have heard the studio version I think it sounds so much better than id hoped for. The girls are bored of chocolate and moved to Bubblegum here. This is the more Kawaii side of the album that is guaranteed to make you move.
YAVA! (Previously called Chigau by fans): This one has a very awesome intro and some great Ska influences in there with the rapid assault of Guitars that will get circle pits going for sure live. Despite the catchiness of this song I think it left the least amount of impact on me throughout the album.
Amore: Ok here is the first Su-metal solo song of the album. Starts with some beautiful melodic vocals before some blistering shredding kicks in that gives off a very classic Dragonforce vibe. It is not as powerful as Akatsuki from the first album imo but that opinion could change when I see it live on Saturday (April 2nd) at Wembley.
Meta Taro: Now this was an unexpected one, a very Battle metal (Battle Hym) style song with influences from bands like Sabaton for example. It sounds like a song that you would march to and has plenty of lyrics from all 3 girls. A big surprise and im loving it!
From Dusk To Dawn: This album keeps surprising me! Now we have a song that has plenty of dubstep sounds and heavy riffs and not many lyrics. It is a very surreal sounding song and I especially love when they say BREAK! Before the breakdown. Has a lot of Bring Me The Horizon vibes to it
GJ!: Now we are onto the first Black Babymetal song (Moa and Yui) and this one is a favorite for me at the moment. Imagine some heavy Nu Metal riffs with Moa and yui doing some fast and very cute almost Rap like lyrics. You will have Motto Motto Hora! Repeating in your head for a while haha.
Sis Anger: Hands down the heaviest song on the album (maybe even the heaviest they have ever done). The second Black Babymetal song is the death Metal song of the album but with Moa and Yui’s cute vocals instead of growls and a lot of shouts that add to the intensity of the song like BAKA YAROOOO! (Basically a more vulgar version of Idiot or Moron. Who though Moa and Yui were so foul mouthed haha). This song will make you bang your head for sure.
No Rain No Rainbow: Now time to relax a little. An old song that was performed at 2 concerts in 2013 and 2014 finally comes back with a full release on the album. The second Su Metal solo song is a bit of a tear jerker. A beautiful Piano Ballad with an amazing guitar solo and very angelic vocals from Su Metal. So are you relaxed now? Cause buckle up for the next one, it’s about to get crazy.
Tales Of The Destinies: Now I still cannot describe what happens in this song, it is so much thrown at you at once in a mental mind-fuck. It will take a lot of listens to know what’s going on in this blend of many genres. There’s a little piano part, loads of tone changes and a very Math rock sound to it. Is it even possible to play live? Well the Kami Band will have their work cut out for them for sure. For these reasons it makes it a very memorable song from this album that is sure to confuse you haha.
The One: Now this one sounds like an anthem, a full English song about everyone coming together as THE ONE. It’s a beautiful way to end the album and sounds amazing. Will be a great closing song for Future concerts.
Extra song only available on the Japanese version
Syncopation: Now this one sounds very much like it could be an opening of an Anime. It’s a great rock song with some very nice vocals and chants from Moa and Yui. It’s somewhat softer than some of the others which is nice to have. This one is growing on me more and more with each listen.
Overall impression I freaking love the album. If I had to give it a rating it would be 9.5/10 as it can’t be absolutely perfect but it is the closest you will get to perfect. There is a song for everyone on this album and I’m pretty sure it has broken a record of most genres on a single album for sure!
