Game appearances[]

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

"Metal" plays when the party fights The Manipulator within Alexander - The Burden of the Father, the final turn of Gordias. True to its name and in sharp contrast to the electric tones of the usual boss theme, "Locus", "Metal" is a heavy metal ballad in the language of the Goblins (perhaps sung by Quickthinx Allthoughts and his Illuminati), calling for "The end! Oh, the end! Yes, the end!" of the Warriors of Light. "Metal" is also used when the party fights Onslaughter inside Alexander - The Burden of the Son and Refurbisher 0 in Alexander - The Eyes of the Creator.

Before the party engages these bosses in combat, an instrumental version of "Metal" plays as the ambient music, switching to lyrical mode upon engaging. The lyrical version of the track was also used in a trailer for Alexander at PAX Prime 2015.

It is the 58th and the last track in Heavensward: Final Fantasy XIV Original Soundtrack.

Music

"Metal - Brute Justice Mode" is the theme of Brute Justice within Alexander - The Burden of the Son, the final boss of Midas, created by the fusion of Onslaughter and its four sentai-like robots from Alexander - The Arm of the Son, deep within Alexander - The Burden of the Son. Fittingly for Brute Justice, who is likely modeled after Voltron, "Metal - Brute Justice Mode" is a 70s Tokusatsu-style jazz theme, created by remixing "Metal" and "Locus".

"Metal - Brute Justice Mode" is the 10th track in The Far Edge of Fate: Final Fantasy XIV Original Soundtrack.

A goblin in Idyllshire sings his own version of the song: "Smack whack crack wham bang bonk boom! Gob building fancy new room!"

Snap click crank whirr whizz wham boom!
Wheels humsing uplander doom!
Crack thoom snap bam bim bangy zoom!
Ah, nearsoon firebloom, crimson FOOM!
Stop dizzyheels of the wicked
Defuse, pop! Debone, slup! Deflate...
Brute Justice Transmode!
Twenty-two sectors tested
Fragments in one direction
Celestial noise detected
Delirium unsuspected
Static tuned in to reason (Yes, falling back right in with the system)
Time in the aether deepens (Who'll see you falling back to the end)
Transmissions blink uncompleted (Yes, falling back right in with the system)
Seven two three two three...<send> (Who'll see you falling back to the end)
Yes, falling back right in with the system
Who'll see you falling back to the end
When falling back is better than simply
Falling back into pieces again
