BABYMETAL have unveiled the first single from their upcoming concept album THE OTHER ONE.
The song, dubbed “Divine Attack-Shingeki” takes a slightly different path from typical BABYMETAL songs going for a heavier, post-hardcore sound rather than their dance-centric metal style. The song marks their first single since 2020’s “BxMxC.”
The song also introduces the album’s ambitious concept. The press release says BABYMETAL were “sealed” from the world after a 10-year journey and were finally recovered within the virtual “METALVERSE” in April 2022 via “THE OTHER ONE restoration project.”
The restoration project uncovered 10 songs, each “representing a unique theme based on 10 separate parallel worlds.” “Divine Attack – Shingeki” is based on one of the worlds dubbed “CAVALRY,” which alludes “to a cavalry preparing for their next battle.”
Check out the single below.
BABYMETAL will release four more pre-release singles in the coming months, dropping in November, January, February, and March respectively. Pre-order THE OTHER ONE here.
After the album’s release, BABYMETAL will join Sabaton on their UK/European tour in April and May. Find all their dates here.
