International phenomenon Babymetal shared a surprise single, “Distortion,” to kick off their latest world tour. The video introduces The Seven Metal Spirits that the band teased a week ago.
The apocalyptic video introduces seven new characters to their mythology. The Seven Metal Spirits are shown facing down a giant, demonic creature, using super powers, in an epic battle takes place in what looks like the wasteland of a ruined city. One character wields fire, another can fly, another warps reality, and best of all, one looks like a female version of Raiden from Mortal Kombat.
In a press release the band said, “The new song ‘Distortion’ explores the unrevealed dark side, the apocrypha, the legend of seven metal spirits in which power is distorted through time and space. The music video of this song presents this unknown side and marks the important beginning of a new legend.”
Last week the band released a cryptic video about the Seven Metal Spirits. They also announced their own record label. You can read all about it here.
