Hailing from the southern edge of Finland, Battle Beast were founded in 2008 and established themselves with their trademark PROPER Heavy Metal. Following the success of their second self-titled album, the band are now set to release their third studio album, Unholy Saviour. The new album will be out on the 12th of January 2015 via Nuclear Blast (I’ve already pre-ordered it – Ed). Until then, the band are whetting fans appetite by revealing the official video for new track Madness:
They’ve also released another track Touch In The Night that you can check out here:
Bass player Eero Sipilä commented:
“Touch in the Night is probably the farthest away from typical Battle Beast sound we’ve ever went. It really sums it up, that in the pre-production phrase went under the nickname Alphaville. If Judas Priest covered Big in Japan, I believe this is where they would end up. True metal fans hold on to your hats – there’ll be more blast beats for you later!”
The tracklist for Unholy Saviour reads as follows:
I Want The World….And Everything In It
Sea Of Dreams
Speed And Danger
Touch In The Night
The Black Swordsman
Far Far Away
