BATTLE BEAST – sign a deal with Nuclear Blast - 2011-11-17

2011-11-17 - Finland – a mine of talented newcomer bands since the year one. With BATTLE BEAST from Helsinki, Nuclear Blast are happy to welcome one of the most promising combos of this flourishing scene aboard!

Founded in 2008, the band already attended the W:O:A Metal Battle in their home country two years later and won the national contest, which enabled them to perform at the Wacken Open Air in Germany and represent Finland in the international Metal Battle finals. Battling 26 other bands from all around the world, BATTLE BEAST emerged victorious. Under these circumstances a record deal with the world’s biggest independent heavy metal label seems to be the only logical consequence – Andy Siry, head of A&R at Nuclear Blast, agrees:

”Young, dynamic but still deeply rooted in traditional heavy metal – BATTLE BEAST breathe new life into the scene and rekindle the sound of the 80s with a fulgent livery. The well-deserved victory at the W:O:A Metal Battle 2010 was the first important step to which we want to live up by supporting these up-and-coming talents energetically. We’re looking forward to the cooperation!“

The band also expresses their joy. Guitarist Anton comments:
"We feel honoured that Nuclear Blast show their interest in BATTLE BEAST by releasing "Steel". Many thanks to our partners, closest people and most of all to our fans who believed in us and gave us their support. The journey continues!"



BATTLE BEAST’s brilliant debut album “Steel“ will be released on January 27th 2012 via Nuclear Blast – the track list contains the following songs:

01. Enter The Metal World
02. Armageddon Clan
03. The Band Of The Hawk
04. Justice And Metal
05. Steel
06. Die-Hard Warrior
07. Cyberspace
08. Show Me How To Die
09. Savage And Saint
10. Iron Hand
11. Victory

BONUS TRACK:
12. Stay Black
