Guest review by
Battle Beast are a young band formed in 2008 from Helsinki, Finland. I learned about them thanks to Wacken Open Air. They won Metal Battle, a contest for new bands held at the German festival. I listened to their single, "Show Me How To Die" simply out of curiosity, but I didn't expect what I heard. Powerful and melodic traditional metal that's more than just a lifeless copy of old British bands. Steel is their debut album. They were spotted by some Nuclear Blast scouts and released the CD via this giant label. Whether it's a good decision or not to join such a huge company right at the beginning of their career - not for me to judge. What I can judge, however, is their music.
