Japanese idol and heavy metal culture bash heads in the most glorious of ways with the release of Babymetal‘s latest single ‘Karate’. The song is taken from the highly anticipated Metal Resistance that is set for worldwide release on ‘Fox Day’ (aka April Fools).

Complete with the infectious energy of Moametal and Yuimetal’s chants housing Su-metal’s soaring vocals, all while the increasingly heavier instrumentation thrashes wildly beneath, ‘Karate’ clobbers all with its no-bullshit djent racket. Originally seen as ‘that weird metal band from Japan’, Babymetal are kicking in the teeth of all the skeptics with this blazing track.
