Here is the BABYMETAL interview.

Q: Last August, BABYMETAL participated in Summer Sonic 2013 and met Kirk Hammett, Metallica’s lead guitarist. What do you feel about that?
A: It was the first time we met, and even though it was really brief, we were appreciating each other. When Metallica was on stage, we watched their show and when BABYMETAL was on stage, he watched our show.

Q: What was the best experience you got from Summer Sonic 2013?
A: Last year, we also attended Summer Sonic, but we didn’t perform at the main stage. We watched Momoiro Clover Z performing on stage in front of around 10,000 audiences and we hoped that someday, we could perform on that stage too. Finally, this year our dream came true.

Q: What was your first impression on Indonesia?
A: Pretty interesting, especially because the roads are very crowded with so many vehicles. We also have tried some Indonesian food like satay and star fruit juice.

Q: Moa and Yui are active members of Twinkle Stars, Mini-Party, and BABYMETAL itself. How do you manage the time to do each group’s activity?
A: It’s nothing special because we (Moa and Yui) really love music, so we enjoy doing each activity.
