Max Portnoy on Hideki Aoyama: "Okay, so when I first checked out Babymetal, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but after listening to a few songs, I was blown away by the musicianship on all the songs! "The drumming on Metal Resistance is absolutely incredible, it has everything you could want in a metal drummer.
"From the extremely fast playing on Amore to the really difficult progressive playing on Tales of the Destinies (which is one of the hardest songs I’ve ever tried learning). Aoyama Hideki is seriously an amazing drummer, and he can play everything super tight live!"
