Humanity’s reckless broadcast of the Voyager probe’s Golden Record has ruined the relative peace and quiet of the galactic home to an eight-tentacled alien species, so they’ve come to earth to exact their revenge! Parking their invasion force over a quiet Tokyo suburb, the aliens abducted and merged the soul of a high school boy into the body of his classmate Rinko, who happens to be the drummer in her school’s all-girl metal club. Unfortunately for the aliens, this unlikely duo is determined to fight back with the only weapon they have: the power of Heavy Metal! Join up with fellow K.M.G. (Kichijoji Metal Girls) members Kia, Mani, Shiimi, and Erii, and unleash rocking drumbeats and metal riffs to protect the earth from these tentacled invaders while simultaneously trying to navigate daily life as a high school student.
