Marty Friedman: "It's very good. I also like the original song. It's a good peace which I played by myself. After BABYMETAL lives, when the fans return to their homes would be nice if this song is played (Laughs). Speaking about that, there is no guitars in this album, isn't it?"
Hitomi Nishiyama: "Yes, they are not included."
Marty Friedman: "I think is better to not have a guitar (Laughs). I think they doesn't match with the concept."
