The collaboration started with "Painkiller". Halford and Su-Metal sang in a high-tone voice face to face. Followed by "Breaking The Law", Su-Metal calls Yuimetal and Moametal onstage as special guitarists, a collaboration beyond generations was achieved between Halford and BABYMETAL


In the part of the guitar riffs, Yuimetal and Moametal unfolded a great performance, Su-Metal's singing was as if she had been possessed by the soul of Metal God. 


Su-Metal about this collaboration, "I had been admiring Rob very much, I never imagined a collaboration with him after one year we met. Being able to sing for real standing together  onstage is like a dream, I was very glad DEATH!" 


Moametal said: "I suspect if it was a dream , passed in a blink!", while Yuimetal "After the live was over, he kindly said, 'Let's collaborate longer next time', by all means I want to make it true DEATH!"

    This collab made my day/week/month.
    The western purists are weakening and the girls and kami are getting proper credit more and more. its no longer a secret love of them, true metal heads, purists, old timer core metal fans are all embracing babymetal...understanding they will never (and should never) be 100% metal only but their unique fusion thats being soo welcomed as part of this genre.

    I noticed a video lately of a metallica concert..and it was spotted in the wings a glimpse of 3 japanese girls watching their preformance. definately them...since they are on tour, there is no way they are stopping to take in concerts without can only hope what may be coming is as awesome as we think.
