Babymetal is Back

In a big way. MONOCHROME is the best song since Yui Mizuno left the band. As usual, the live version is even better than the studio version. It’s got a bit of KARATE in it, a bit of NO RAIN, NO RAINBOW, and the same anthemic feel as THE ONE and ROAD OF RESISTANCE. Kobametal clearly knew he was onto something with this one, as it even has a beautiful piano version that shows off Suzuka Nakamoto’s unbelievable voice as she records the entire song live in one take.

UPDATE: How could you not love Japan? Turns out they do originals too, although more metal than Band-Maid’s hard rock. Not that Band-Maid has been idle of late.
