January 21, 2022, 4 months ago
After re-signing to Nuclear Blast in early 2021, Battle Beast are once again unleashing their full force upon the world in the shape of their brand new masterpiece, Circus Of Doom, out now via Nuclear Blast. In true Battle Beast fashion, the 10 tracks blend true heavy metal with pop and rock-vibes, paired with Noora Louhimo’s unique voice.
To celebrate the occasion, the band release a music video of their new single "Wings Of Light, that you can watch below:
Janne Björkroth comments about the release: "We wanted to make an absorbing and interesting album that includes both lighter party songs and heavier stuff as well. It's not a theme album in the traditional sense, but rather a versatile entity that sounds like Battle Beast, but with new flavors and twists.
The album is named after its theatrical opening track, which is quite a massive song in many ways. It's groovy and catchy, filled with fascinating details, wild orchestrations, big emotions, and many stories. In that way, the song reflects the whole album, and we think it's an ideal title track. Like the song 'Circus Of Doom', the whole album is filled with enchanting surprises and wild carnival atmosphere. Like a joyful day at the circus."
Circus Of Doom was recorded at JKB Studios in Helsinki, Finland and produced and mixed by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, while the stunning artwork was created by Jan Yrlund.
