BABYMETAL Debut New Track “METAL!!” Featuring Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello


BABYMETAL lined up the talents of influential guitarist/activist, etc. Tom Morello (Rage Again The Machine, etc.) to help flesh out their new single, “METAL!!“. The Japanese Kawaii metal champs have just given that song its online debut. Morello previously had the following to say of this collaboration:

“I am a big fan of BABYMETAL, a band that is both power rocking and constantly surprising with dizzying musical twists and turns. I’ve been trying to work with them for some time and when they sent me the demo of ‘METALI!!’ I knew I could rock that shit like crazy!”

The song marks the band’s first with their current lineup, which saw Momometal officially join the fold this year.
