New Crushing Album by Battle Beast

Finnish metal gods Battle Beast just unleashed their new skull-crushing album “Circus of Doom” on January 21st with Nuclear Blast. Over the last decade and a half, Battle Beast has been stomping the power metal scene all around. They have reached over 200 million and counting streams, received three #1 records in Finland, and have sold out shows around the world with other power metal legends like Nightwish, and Sabaton. If you are a fan of bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dragonforce, this is the band for you!

“Circus of Doom”  features 10 headbanging tracks that blend heavy metal with pop vibes, I cannot stress how good this band is and this album has definitely made one of my favorite albums of the year. Their vocalist Noora Louhimo absolutely shreds all through every song, her highs in my opinion are right there with Rob Halford of Judas Priest. One of my favorite tracks on this album happens to be a bonus track titled “Tempest of Blades”. The one thing I was not expecting out of this album at all was a very tasty two-step, I can only hope they play this song on their upcoming tour. Speaking of the tour, you can catch Battle Beast this March-April alongside the almighty Dragonforce!

I hope to see you at the Reading, PA date on April 15th, but until then you can pick up a copy of “Circus of Doom” everywhere. You can check out their music video for the song “Masters of Illusion” which is one of the other songs on this album that slams below!
