Battle Beast Bio:
Hailing from the southern edge of Finland, BATTLE BEAST represents the traditional Heavy Metal sound. Delivering crunching riffs, high screams, blistering solos and powerful choruses - in one word: Power.
Starting in the year 2008 BATTLE BEAST's journey has taken the band quickly to the consciousness of the metal scene. Winning the W:O:A Metal Battle, Radio Rock Starba and appearing in the Finnish Metal Expo were some of the early highlights of the band's career.
Fueled by its rocket-like rise to fame, the band soon landed a recording deal with HYPE RECORDS in late 2010. The fruit of the new synergy was soon to be shown.
Released in April 2011, the band's debut album STEEL hit the Finnish album charts at #7. Also the album's two singles, "Show Me How to Die" and "Enter the Metal World", both gained heavy rotation on the Finnish radio waves. Even the press greeted the album with open arms - the
reviews for STEEL ranged from very good to excellent in almost every noteworthy media.
Although released only in Finland, the album was quick to make waves abroad as well.
All the rumors and expectations were finally redeemed in November, when an extensive licensing deal with the dominating global metal power, NUCLEAR BLAST was announced. The international release of STEEL is therefore to happen in early 2012.
The past summer saw the band touring extensively in their native Finland and appear on some of the country's biggest festivals. In November the band will head on a seven date German tour supporting POISONBLACK. The rest of Europe will get their taste of Finnish Steel in spring of 2012, when BATTLE BEAST takes the honor of supporting NIGHTWISH on their European tour. The tour will span total of 20 gigs in 13 countries all over continental Europe.
The journey has just begun…
