Hailing from the southern edge of Finland, Battle Beast were founded in 2008 and soon established themselves with their trademark of pure crunching riffs, high screams, blistering solos and strong choruses. Taking the best elements of traditional heavy metal, the sextet is never afraid to add its own flavour to the recipe. After winning the 2010 Wacken Open Air ‘Metal Battle’, and shortly after Finland’s ‘Radio Rock Starba’ competition, Battle Beast soon caught the attention of Nuclear Blast. The worldwide release of the highly acclaimed debut album ‘Steel’ in January of 2012 and a successful support tour with fellow Finns and label mates Nightwish followed.
Unrelenting, Battle Beast released their third album, ‘Unholy Savior’ this year. The album’s influenced by everything the band has been facing during the past months and clearly displays their increased hunger to succeed as a band. Trying to explain the topics of the third Battle Beast record, one will have to go deeper as the songs lyrics were born through an emotionally violent and bloody struggle, that main composer Anton Kabanen was going through at the time: Questioning his whole existence step by step, wondering if his dream had betrayed him. ‘Unholy Savior’ reeks of death, agony, pain, hate, confusion, fear and insecurity, but it speaks of deep gratitude, longing, consolation and love.
Having toured Europe extensively to support the album, supporting the legendary Sabaton, the band returns this December in their very own headline show for their ‘Unholy Saviour European Tour’. They’ll be hitting the stage here at The Borderline with support from Alpha Tiger and The Order of Chaos.
Prepare yourselves for the return of the beast!
