This is simply an amazing and stunning metal album from the mighty Battle Beast. Some people had serious question marks when the band were forced last year to find a replacement for the fabulous Nitte Valo and what a replacement they have found ! The new vocalist is quickly becoming a genuine metal goddess, the amazingly talented Noora Louhimo has such a great range and is a true metal singer. For those who love the classic metal style with a modern twist and high quality production then this is most definitely for you.
I had the chance to listen to this a number of times on pre-listen and I was hooked immediately. The whole band perform well, but above all full credit has to go to the genius behind this band, Anton Kabanen, lead guitarist and master song writer he has delivered the basics to enable the whole band to deliver a tight and dynamic album.
The influences from Accept to Judas Priest to Iron Maiden are all discreetly in there but above all these are classy songs, some great riffs and songs you want to play over and over again, oh plus the vocals, god the great vocals !!!!
This is the second full album for Battle Beast and without a doubt a real step up, the first album was great but this pushes them to a new level. Lets hope they get the credit they deserve and for now I am just excited to have this simply stunning album in my collection !!! Seriously buy this and take note that The Beast really have arrived ! Play it Loud.
