Here is a bit of history. 10 months after the victorious shows at the Budokan in Tokyo Babymetal kicked off 2015 with a massive show at the 20,000 capacity Saitama Super Arena on January 10. The show highlighted the “Road of Resistance” single that were soon to be released on February 1 in Japan, a collaboration between DragonForce and Babymetal. The song was first performed live in the UK at the Academy Brixton show on November 8 2014 so it is available as part of their “Live In London – World Tour 2014” DVD (this version is also featured as a bonus on the international version of the first album). Later on, it was also the opening track on the second album “Metal Resistance”. Babymetal understood the importance of this song early on and shot a video for official use at the Saitama Super Arena. 13,000,000 hits and counting on YouTube. It is a bit of a masterpiece and the opening ritual and the performance by the girls is awesome to behold. It is a bonafide classic now.
