That’s another story of Babymetal… This work is a concept album that restores Babymetal songs that we didn’t know. 10 parallel worlds that exist beyond the time and space that were revealed during the restoration plan ‘The Other One’ to solve the mystery sealed in ‘The Other One – Black Box.’ 10 theme songs are now clear!!”

BABYMETAL Premiere New Song “Divine Attack – Shingeki”

BABYMETAL have premiered a new song titled “Divine Attack – Shingeki.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Other One,” which will be released on March 23. The following was said about the song in a press release:

“A total of 10 songs have been discovered within ‘The Other One’ restoration project, with each song representing a unique theme based on 10 separate parallel worlds that they have discovered. One of the discovered 10 parallel worlds is ‘Cavalry’, and their single ‘Divine Attack – Shingeki’ centres around this theme. As if this song is a hint into the future, alluding to a cavalry preparing for their next battle, we can feel a new sense of power from not only the sound but also the lyrics that have been written by SU-METAL for the first time.”
