・About Suzuka Nakamoto （SU-METAL）
Suzuka was signed to the talent agency Amuse, Inc. after becoming a runner-up in the 2nd Star Kids Audition held by the company.
In 2010 Suzuka became a founding member of Sakura Gakuin, an idol group created by her agency. The group members also formed so-called clubs, or smaller groups, each of which released their own songs as a unit. Suzuka became a member of the heavy music club, which released songs under the name of BABYMETAL. That group also includes fellow Sakura Gakuin members Yui Mizuno and Moa Kikuchi.
In the spring of 2013, Suzuka Nakamoto graduated from junior high school and therefore had to “graduate” from the group Sakura Gakuin ( which consists of girls of up to junior high age). Her graduation concert was held on March 31 at the Tokyo International Forum. Suzuka now performs with BABYMETAL under the name Su-metal. BABYMETAL’s self-titled debut album was released in February 2014.
Suzuka has an older sister, Himeka Nakamoto, who is a member of the idol group Nogizaka46. They both acted together at the Actor’s School Hiroshima (ASH) and sang together as a duo known as “Tween”.

We knew SU-METAL was a hard worker as various activities in her career since she was very young. The fact that YUIMETAL loved her since her younger days and sang her song for the audition is miraculous. SU-METAL’s career as ”Karen Girl’s” has historically led three of them to BABYMETAL’s success as we know it today.
