Babymetal: 'Slayer and Metallica Are Very Different Live From Who They Are Backstage'
Babymetal recently gave their first-ever US interview, sharing quite a few interesting details from over the past few months.

As reported, the J-pop death metal act recently saw a massive popularity rise, getting a chance to share the stage with such metal behemoths as Metallica and Slayer. Speaking of which, the girls got very impressed by how different metal titans are on and off stage.

"When we were at Sonisphere, in the dressing room we were talking to a lot of people," Moametal told Metal Sucks. "We met the guys from Slayer, so when we first met them it was a different impression from watching them onstage - they were like totally different people. That was very cool for me. We saw Slayer and Metallica perform. I think that they are very cool live and very different from who they are backstage, but very cool."

The girls further added, "When we are not being metal, we are also different people. So of course our friends are like, 'Oh, you guys are totally different from when you're on stage!' But we go to karaoke together and our friends will sing metal songs with us. Everyone is really supportive."

Asked to pinpoint the reason behind Babymetal's popularity, Su-metal explained, "I feel that it's probably because we're doing something so different, something that has never been done before in the metal scene. This is probably the reason why people have responded very well to our music and what we’re doing right now."
