NEW BAND BABY METAL LEARNED FROM METALLICA
Babymetal singer Su-Metal says the band have "learned a lot from Metallica."
The Japanese trio admit they knew little about the genre before they were brought together to front the J-pop sensations. But they learned from the biggest metal band of all as they honed their act. And they even play Metallica songs before they take to the stage at their gigs.
Su-metal tells Rolling Stone: "It's not only something for us, but the fans get excited when they listen to Metallica and, with Babymetal, it keeps with the rhythm. Before we joined Babymetal, we weren't that familiar with metal, but we learned a lot from Metallica. Watching their shows and even meeting them, they were really nice to us."
