BABYMETAL and Electric Callboy have released an electrically charged techno music video to accompany their exhilarating new single, “RATATATA.”

Two of the largest names in metal, the groups have come together to produce a hit single, and it’s even better than you could possibly imagine! “RATATATA” seamlessly unites each band’s trademark style into a hypnotic, headbanging ode to metal. Part of that seamless unity is the accompanying music video, which sees Electric Callboy’s notorious vision for kooky, humorous music videos incorporate BABYMETAL’s captivating choreography for a sonically stimulating, visually stunning performance.

The song kicks off with a tough, bouncy synth beat. The track’s energy is subdued as it builds toward that initial “RATATATA-TATA,” where the guitar and drums come crashing in while singer Nico Sallach’s signature screams stimulate your inner demons. The pot is sweetened when BABYMETAL’s tantalizing vocals take over to give the song its snappy, memorable chorus. Elevated by Japanese verses you don’t need to understand to delight in, this single is a lively, energetic, and hard-rock display you’ll want to put on repeat.
