Su-Metal: "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! At first I was nervous, at the end I enjoyed it!" 


Moametal: "'Ijime, Dame, Zettai'", I was very nervous because I had to play the guitar, it was fun DEATH! I suspect if it was a dream, passed in a blink! Also once had the opportunity to collaborate, I wanted to try the guitar DEATH!" 


Yuimetal: "I was nervous. We value such experience of playing a live homage with the real Metal God, it's something will not forget DEATH! After the live was over, he kindly said, 'Let's collaborate longer next time', by all means I want to make it true!"

    I don't understand the references to "death".

    @Grundoon: In Japanese, when you say something is such-and-such, you use the word "desu" (it kind of means "to be" but not really, it's complicated). The "u" is often not pronounced, so it sounds like "des". Regarding the english word "death", the Japanese are not familiar with the "th"-sound, so to them it also sounds like "des". In short, it is a wordplay, so when they say "Babymetal desu" ("we are Babymetal") they also say "Babymetal death" because it sounds alike. The transcriber of the original interview went along with it and transcribed every instance of "desu" as "death".
