Highlights


“100% heavy metal - 0% bullshit!” - BATTLE BEAST’s formula is simple, but very effective; and with their enormously catchy, riff-laden songs coupled with Noora Louhimo’s unique voice, these young Finns have become a flagship of modern heavy metal over the past few years.

Having only formed in 2008, BATTLE BEAST signed a record deal with the renown German metal label Nuclear Blast in 2011. The unleashing of their acclaimed debut »Steel« (2012), won the band a support slot for their labelmates NIGHTWISH. Frontwoman Noora Louhimo finally joined the band in 2012 and the band’s self-titled record (2013) was released shortly afterwards. BATTLE BEAST then got the opportunity to open for bands such as SONATA ARCTICA and POWERWOLF on extensive runs. Their ascent up the metal ladder was quick and the band’s 3rd studio album »Unholy Savior«, achieved remarkable chart positions all over Europe (#1 Finland, #23 UK Rock, #39 Germany etc.). This release was accompanied by another big European tour, but this time with Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON and DELAIN. BATTLE BEAST’s very first headline run throughout the Continent rounded off their »Unholy Savior« touring cycle.

 

But the band didn’t rest on their well-deserved laurels and instead made 2017 the most successful year in their still rather short history by forging their 4th powerful piece of heavy metal, »Bringer Of Pain«. The record also marked BATTLE BEAST’s first output without their original songwriter Anton Kabanen. The achievements of the previous album were topped: #1 in Finland, #14 in Germany plus several entries in countries where they had never hit the album charts before. The band’s 2ndEuropean headlining trek, this time supported by MAJESTY and GYZE, was the cherry on the 2017 cake. Many shows were sold out and had to be moved to bigger venues! Appearances at festivals such as Bloodstock Open Air (UK), Summer Breeze (D), and Masters of Rock (CZ) and show debuts in various countries and continents faded out this year which went down in history. In April 2018, BATTLE BEAST went on another US tour with KAMELOT and DELAIN, before closing their »Bringer Of Pain« world tour with selected summer festival and club gigs.

…whilst in the silent corners of the band’s tour bus, 11 new hymns have been written for their opus no. 5, entitled »No More Hollywood Endings«. Recorded by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, Viktor Gullichsen and guitarist Joona Björkroth at JKB Studios; the record was also produced and mixed by Janne. The cover artwork was created by Jan Yrlund (KORPIKLAANI, MANOWAR etc.), who already took care of the »Bringer Of Pain« design.
