BABYMETAL’s quest for global domination is truly starting to take flight.
In some ways, this album is a nightmare, but only to the so-called ‘elitists’ who might have hoped that Babymetal would fall by the wayside and fade into obscurity. Instead, they’ve pulled the rabbit out of the hat once again.
One listen to this record should see any naysayers firmly put in their place. Bow down to the intergalactic Fox God, get over your prejudices and let them blow your mind.
I certainly never thought in a million years that I'd ever say that the new Babymetal is better than the new Amon Amarth, much less that the new Babymetal is currently my album of the year, but this is the world we live in now.
METAL RESISTANCE defies the odds and delivers a listening experience that far exceeds that of the first album, and I am certain BABYMETAL’s world domination is just now beginning.
Metal Resistance proves Babymetal’s debut wasn’t just a novelty. It overcomes the sophomore curse spectacularly, no matter what genre you consider it.
I just finished my first cover-to-cover listen, and I feel like I just woke up from a week long bender, and everything is a blur, but I’m glad I survived, and I’ll probably do it again very soon … like now.
On Metal Resistance, BABYMETAL continues their reign over kawaii metal, their unique genre-bending sound that could comfortably serve as the soundtrack for the morbid animated series, Metalocalypse.
True heavy metal classics littered throughout the record and not a dull moment in sight, Babymetal are here to stay, and I for one am incredibly glad.
