J-pop-infused metal band Babymetal are ready to kick some serious ass on April 1st with the release of their sophomore album Metal Resistance. And to show you just how serious they are the band has released an official video for their song “Karate”, which shows the group using their martial arts-inspired dancing to vanquish three mysterious figures dressed in white robes.
I’ve made it abundantly clear that I love this group. I think they’re fun as hell and they hit two audiences that metal often overlooks: younger teens and, specifically, younger women. If this inspires more women to show that they’re capable of rocking out just as hard as the guys, then I’ll back Babymetal until the day I die.
