Album Review

BATTLE BEAST is a Finland based power metal band that was founded in 2008. The band plays epic power metal and has won the Metal Battle Contest at Wacken Open Air 2010. At the end of the year 2011 the band signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast which released their first album named ‘Steel’ in 2012. In august of 2012, the first vocalist Nitte Valo left the band and was replaced with Noora Louhimo. The follow-up to ‘Steel’, the self-titled ‘Battlebeast’, was released in 2013.

Now in December 2014 I sit in my rather small apartment and listen to the songs of BATTLE BEAST’s 3rd strike, ‘Unholy Savior’, and I can say two things rather quickly, first: I think I would like the band (at least a little bit) if it wouldn’t be female fronted and second: I get the feeling that I heard everything on this record before, more brutal, faster and better. Nothing I hear is new or at least varied in a manner that demands balls. Nothing is brave, not one song provokes a feeling aside wanting to listen to something else. Don’t understand me wrong, musically or technique-wise the band members know what they do, they just follow a path that has been walked a million times before.

Normally I recommend a song to listen to in this segment but I cannot recommend a song this time...

Yeah, you can't recommend a song because you've listened the album like one time, with 40% focused on a first few songs.

Don't really know why all of you review guys keep pointing out that something is bad just because it's not new, fresh, or whatever... There are plenty of room for true heavy metal in the vein of the best bands from the 80s, with apsolutely no need to open the new horizons or some other shit.

Just listen and enjoy!
