"Metal - Brute Justice Mode"
FFXIV Brute Justice Theme

"Metal" is a set of boss themes that play within the Burdens of Alexander in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, composed by Masayoshi Soken. The two themes are known as "Metal - Alexander Awakes" and "Metal - Brute Justice Mode".

Game appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIV: HeavenswardEdit

"Metal - Alexander Awakes" plays when the party fights The Manipulator within 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 - Alexander Awakes" 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 - Alexander Awakes" is also used when the party fights Onslaughter inside the Burden of the Son and Refurbisher 0 in the Eyes of the Creator.

Before the party engages these bosses in combat, an instrumental version of "Metal - Alexander Awakes" 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.

"Metal - Brute Justice Mode" is the theme of Brute Justice, the final boss of Alexander: Midas, created by the fusion of Onslaughter and its four sentai-like robots from the Arm of the Son, deep within 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 - Alexander Awakes" and Locus.

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