Deposed Battle Beast founder Anton Kabanen is back with Beast In Black who are now fully armed and ready with a Nuclear Blast record deal.

Beast In Black will release their debut album, 'Berserker', in November. The album's cover artwork marks the return of the collaboration between Anton and Roman Ismailov who was the original illustrator and graphic artist for Battle Beast.

Anton Kabanen told us:

"Our wildest dreams came true when we made a deal with Nuclear Blast, the biggest and the best Heavy Metal label in the world.

"We are thrilled about our debut album release in November and besides the massive anthem-like Heavy Metal songs, we'll promise unforgettable live shows all around the world as we unleash the 'Berserker' album!"

The five-piece, Helsinki based Beast In Black were founded by Anton Kabanen soon after he had parted ways with Battle Beast in 2015, the same year they played their first gig as opening act for Nightwish.

The making of 'Berserker' was already in progress back then and it was completed in summer 2017. A deal was signed with Nuclear Blast almost immediately after the completion of the album.

'Berserker' continues in the style of Anton's previously composed works which include the first three Battle BEast albums. One of the essential themes on this debut album is the Japanese manga and anime Berserk.

Beast In Black are:
Yannis Papadopoulos - vocals
Mate Molnar - bass
Sami Hänninen - drums
Kasperi Heikkinen - guitars
Anton Kabanen - guitars, vocals
