The five-piece, Helsinki based heavy metal band BEAST IN BLACK was founded by Anton Kabanen soon after he had parted ways with BATTLE BEAST in 2015. By the end of 2015 the band 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can’t add much more here since I am a total novice about the band. I do know a little bit about the band that Anton originally was a member of but this new thing is a new one to me. I promise to look more into them and when an album is available for purchase I will posthumously add the purchase code down below their Official URL One never does know when readers are going to visit the site and potentially read an older article so it doesn’t hurt to do that kind of editing. If you are a fan of the group and have some background on them, I wonder what you think of this news. Are you excited about it? What should we expect.
