In July last year, BABYMETAL revealed that they wanted to collaborate one day with Bring Me The Horizon, and now, after bringing them on tour in Japan several months later, the two bands have finally collided on record.

Their hectic, heavy joining of forces happens on the track Kingslayer, taken from Bring Me's new 4K-rated Post Human: Survival Horror EP (out today – October 30). Frontman Oli Sykes tells NME that the song is about someone who is “willing to do what’s right even if it’s illegal”, adding of the two bands' work together: “We wanted to do something with them for ages.

“We’ve got a really special connection with them, even though we don’t speak the same language. We don’t hang out or have conversations, but when you see them, it makes you really happy. They work so well with the whole idea of this record being cyber-punk-y. It sounds like an anime TV trailer.”
