So, Battle Beast. Honestly, I’m not familiar with them. I mean, I follow what’s going on around Skullbanger, so I’ve seen pictures and what not, so the extent of my knowledge is “heavy metal band of there in Europe.” Well, they have a new album out and I was asked to do a review. I’m sure I won’t do them justice.

Battle Beast is the metal version of a Frank Frazetta painting on the side of a conversion van. No, that’s a good thing. Please, Battle Beast, put away the axe. What I mean is, they’re epic. Their sound is simply huge, and there’s just no flaw in it. I’ve had mixed feelings about keys in a metal band, but Battle Beasts does it well, adding a feeling of awe to their songs. Vocalist Noora Louhimo delivers, ranging from metal screams to the hypnotic vocals of Angel Cry closing out the album.

Yeah, this is a band I should have checked out earlier. Solid metal with absolutely brilliant execution.
