This Is How Bring Me The Horizon And BABYMETAL Made Kingslayer
It’s no secret that Bring Me The Horizon and BABYMETAL are huge fans of each other’s bands, but few could have imagined that their 2020 collaboration Kingslayer would be quite as awesome as it eventually turned out.
The track was unveiled on October’s Post Human: Survival Horror EP, and now Horizon have shared an insightful making-of video all about the song, with both bands detailing their involvement and how it came together.
Previously, frontman Oli Sykes told NME of working with BABYMETAL on Kingslayer, “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.”
