Beast in Black
“The Beast is back, the Beast In Black!” Haunting words recalling Berserker, Beast In Black’s debut album, from November 2017. Although it never actually felt as if the beast had been away entirely. Right after the departure from his former band Battle Beast, Anton Kabanen founded Beast In Black and recruited high-pitched vocalist Yannis Papadopoulos (Wardrum), bassist Mate Molnar (Wisdom), guitarist Kasperi Heikkinen (U.D.O.) and drummer Atte Palokangas (Thunderstone). This year’s album From Hell With Love cemented the Finnish band’s reputation as one of the frontrunners of powermetal.
