The heavy metal band Voice of Baceprot was formed by three middle schoolers in a small town in Indonesia. Over the years, they built an international following that includes rock legends like Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Slash from Guns N' Roses. They joined AR from a studio in Jakarta, where they were at work on their debut album, to talk about their upbringing, falling in love with rock music, and how they overcame their families' skepticism about their musical careers.
