Grimmreaper Covers Babymetal's “Road of Resistance” With Own English Lyrics; New Album Out March 30

 



The fourth and final single leading up to the full release of Grimmreaper’s debut album “The Tragedy of Being” is upon us, and he has shared his cover version of Babymetal's “Road of Resistance”, which features Dragonforce guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman on the original recording.

Grimmreaper elaborates for choosing the track to cover:

“I’ve been a Dragonforce fan forever. I first heard this song by Babymetal and thought ‘That’s Japanese Dragonforce for sure.’ Sure enough, Dragonforce helped write some songs for them, including this one. I’ve been a fan of Babymetal ever since.

I re-wrote the lyrics in English in 2018 and recorded the cover in my apartment when I lived in Japan. I lived there for a little over a year. It took almost 2 years of learning, recording, failing, and trying again before it was done. Dragonforce often writes about the hero’s journey, mountains, dragons and archetypes, and this cover sticks with those themes, but also fits in with the album’s story.”

Grimmreaper also pays homage to Dragonforce’s writing style by making the cover version of the song about the nobility of moving forward in life, up the mountain. It also fits into the theme of his own album “The Tragedy of Being” quite nicely. The full length is a concept record, which goes through the default conditions of life, tragedy, and suffering, and the options they present, nihilism and resentment, or transcendence and courage.

Grimmreaper’s solo project has been described as mixing technical styles like those of Dragonforce and Meshuggah with mainstream styles like Bullet For My Valentine and Five Finger Death Punch. “The Tragedy of Being” is a dark record with many twists and turns, but never boring. The album is a journey through different tastes of metal, and while it’s meant to be enjoyed from start to finish, each song stands strong on its own.

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
