Metal Resistance is an excellent follow-up to BABYMETAL’s self titled album. Even though is not as great as their 2014 album, Metal Resistance shows the evolution to their songs, and how more mature they are, incorporating a lot more of metal.
If you enjoy their music, this album is necessary to be in your music library. And if you prefer streaming, than buying music, it is also available in multiple streaming platforms.
Another interesting way to see some of their songs, is that they are also throwing a little bit of J-Rock in their songs, for example, Amore can easily be cut into an anime opening/ending, which is pretty common in most popular J-Rock bands, like, FLOW.
There is one song in english if you buy or stream it out of Japan, called The One, and I’m not gonna lie, it is pretty good. I was not expecting it to be that enjoyable. Su-Metal has improved her English a lot, I remember seeing some interviews a while ago, and wow, what a change!
Oh, and before knowing that some members of the band DragonForce collaborated in this album, I was thinking to myself: “Did they change the band? It sounds so much like DragonForce!”
I totally recommend for people who are familiar with its style and appreciate it.
