Loudness talks about BABYMETAL in interview on Natalie
Loudness in order to promote the release of their new album "Samsara Flight" a commemorative release to celebrate the 35th Anniversary was caught by Natalie.mu. In the page 3 of the Interview talk about precedents like BABYMETAL and how times have changed.
-Times have changed. These days we have successful precedents like BABYMETAL.
Takasaki: "They're really interesting. They're cute, and the production is just amazing. It's going to be intriguing to see how the three will change as they continue to get bigger."
Niihara: "We're used to idols in Japan, so no matter how heavy the sound is it's easy to see that they're still idols at the core. However, this combination is unimaginable from a western perspective. They might wonder, "Why are these girls performing to this kind of music?" This may be one of the reasons why they are becoming popular. In fact, I get asked this very question during interviews with western media - "How do you feel about BABYMETAL?" I guess it's really extraordinary for people over there. Well, it would be brilliant if they can expand the market as a result."
Takasaki: "These days it isn't that rare to see Japanese bands performing overseas. I think it's great that we're seeing these dreams coming true. I even wonder how awesome it would be if there is a circuit event featuring just Japanese bands. Anyways, there are many things left we still want to do!"
