In 2008, her agency formed a trio called Karen Girl's, and Suzuka was selected to be in it. The group was introduced as a little sister of the girl trio Perfume and sang several theme songs for the anime Zettai Karen Children. After the animated series ended, on March 31, 2009 the group was dissolved.

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 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.

Babymetal have also collaborated with DragonForce's Herman Li and Sam Totman in 2015 for the Road To Resistance Tour and Album.

Personal details

Suzuka has an older sister, Himeka Nakamoto, who is a member of the idol group Nogizaka46. They both studied together at the Actor's School Hiroshima(ja) (ASH) and sang together in a duo known as Tween.
