BABYMETAL have dropped another taste of their long-awaited fourth album The Other One. Following on from recent singles Divine Attack - Shingeki and Monochrome, the Japanese metallers have released the album's opening track METAL KINGDOM.

Take a listen to the new track below.

The Other One has been described by the band as a concept album, and have released a trailer that includes snippets of all 10 songs on the record. We're still not 100 per cent sure what the story may be, but hopefully this excerpt from the band's press statement will shed some light...

"Last year BABYMETAL were 'sealed' from the world after a successful 10-year journey. In April 2022, THE OTHER ONE restoration project began to recover the BABYMETAL we never knew existed within a virtual world called the METALVERSE. 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. The upcoming concept album features these all-new tracks for us to experience the other BABYMETAL story that no one ever knew about."

So now you know. Check out the trailer to hear the snippets for yourself.
