Exile Tribe’s Battle of Tokyo series continues with its second installment. This mix of animation and live-action has been quite cool so far, and I’m eager to see the rest of the series. Call of Justice finds personal favorite The Rampage joining the fray, bolstered by their familiar rock-meets-rap style. It’s an exciting jolt of energy, different from Generations’ track but maintaining the intensity of this cross-group battle.
My favorite Rampage single is 2019’s Swag & Pride. I think its guitar-heavy sound fits the guys perfectly, and I’m happy to see it continue here. Call of Justice’s chorus isn’t quite as dynamic, but its blend of heavy guitars and dramatic orchestral flourishes is still a lot of fun. The verses trade between charismatic hip-hop and vocals, punching forward with a believable sense of bravado. The second verse makes room for a brief breakdown, adding dynamic kick to an already lively segment.
I wish that Call of Justice’s hook wasn’t so repetitive, but it’s delivered with a ferocity that makes it sound larger than life. Alongside stabs of strings, this simple refrain is elevated to something much more grand. In a way, that has always been The Rampage’s charm. They bring so much energy and life to a track, transforming even the most threadbare of melodies into imposing battle cries that you can’t help but fall in love with. If you’re looking for a song to get your blood pumping and your fist moving, Call of Justice will certainly do the trick.
