Battle Beast ‘Battle Beast’ stream and album review
Battle Beast are streaming their eponymous second album exclusively with Terrorizer.
The latest full length from the Finnish power metal crew was produced and mixed by the band in JKB Studios Helsinki and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. ‘Battle Beast’ is out 20 May via Nuclear Blast, but you can stream it in full right here and read John Consterdine’s review of the album from Terrorizer 236 below.
Within the first 30 seconds of putting on ‘Battle Beast’, the eponymous second album from the Finnish sextet, you’re bombarded with the opening lyric, “I am a space traveller on a distant planet x / Seeking directions back to earth”, and from there on in, you’re hooked. The follow-up to 2011’s ‘Steel’ is the bands first with new vocalist Noora Louhimo, whose utterly incredible range seems to have bolstered the whole outfit, resulting in huge sounding songs, impeccable production and a fantastical atmosphere that leaves you beaming from ear to ear. Combining the ballsy attitude of early Accept with the eccentricity Finnish power metal is known for: Battle Beast will reinvigorate and reforge the genre. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
