Japanese metal trio Babymetal has released a mysterious new trailer announcing the arrival of a new “metal resistance”.
“The video claims that “a new era is about to begin” and goes into some seriously conceptual detail about the “metal resistance” that the band are founded upon.
The transcript speaks on how “Babymetal transcends dimensions of time and space. As well as the body and mind, as it is a legend about the CHOSEN ONE with a metal spirit, who travels across the metal galaxies. The metal spirit within the CHOSEN ONE is born again, rises again, and again, and again.”
