Ok, we’ve talked about two songs from this album, and one other track was originally debuted on special edition of their first. What more could Metal Resistance offer? Is it all SUPER CUTE KAWAII FUN GIRL METAL HEHE YAY!
No, this is serious. I’m being serious. The second album should be taken seriously, as it has a wide variety of influences and sounds reflected within its runtime. Guest spots from Dragonforce guitar wizards and song structures that run the table from J-pop to progressive metal to Queen to…you name it. Metal Resistance doesn’t feel like an album from a group poised to destroy the genre (as many STILL suggest, please let it go, its already older than your grandfather) it feels like an album showing RESPECT to it, marveling at metal and offering their own work to add to its mystique.
Listen, sometimes the best thing a genre of music, a product, ANYTHING can get is something/someone considered “unconventional” giving it their seal of approval, or wanting to be a part of it. BABYMETAL is more than just a product. Does this sound plastic? Hell no. Their backing band prevents that from even being a possibility.
While not a perfect work, Metal Resistance may surprise the heck out of you. Its almost more criminal for you to just pass on it, then it would be to your precious “metal cred” if you listened to it.
And nope, that’s not an April Fools joke.
