2016's Metal Resistance saw the kawaii idol metal troupe embrace the darkness and dial back some of the more radio-friendly J-pop aspects of their sound. Metal Galaxy, the band's third full-length effort, aims to remedy that. The 14-track set commences with the fragmented "Future Metal," an overture of sorts that suggests Babymetal are taking the road less traveled this time around, when in actuality, the idea of globe-trotting plays a large part in the overall proceedings. Thai rapper F. Hero's gruff delivery brings added heft to the already muscular and mosh-pit-ready "Pa Pa Ya!!"
