Atte Palokangas signed endorsement deal with Centent cymbals!
Atte commented:
"So, as some of you might have already noticed that I've changed my cymbals to Centent cymbals.
A little bit more than 2 years I was playing with Impression cymbals but when I had a possibility to try out these Centent cymbals, it was love at the first hit!
Still, I have only the good things to say about Impression and I was really pleased to work with them for more than two years.
But now it's time for new adventures with Centent cymbals.
Can't wait tomorrow to have the first live action with these beauties!"

Atte Palokangas joins Beast In Black family on drums!
Check his video from the audition and read Atte's and Sami's (ex-drummer) statement about the change!

Sami stated:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I regret to inform you that I will no longer be able to fulfill my duty as the drummer of Beast In Black.
Due to new circumstances in my life, I'm not able to take part in the upcoming shows nor tours and I feel the band, especially in its early stages, requires a drummer who will be able to give his absolute hundred percent for the band.
In addition to that, as some of you may know, I've had some issues with my left hand, making drumming sometimes extremely difficult and painful. It has something to do with the nerve system, resulting in my left hand going all numb and powerless - much like the tennis elbow. This would constantly make it hard for me to rehearse and eventually slow the band down.
Let me continue by saying there was and will not be any bad blood between me and the rest of the band. I love all the guys in the band and wish them all the best with their future endeavors.
Without further ado, please give a warm welcome for Mr. Atte Palokangas, the new drummer of BIB. He is an absolute BEAST of a drummer and a perfect fit for the band."

Atte commented:
"I'm honored, excited and thankful for this opportunity! I can't wait for the future adventures with the guys!"

BEAST IN BLACK - sign with Nuclear Blast + debut album "Berserker" due in November!

International heavy metallers Beast In Black are ready to strike with might and main! The band with former Battle Beast guitarist Anton Kabanen will release their debut album titled "Berserker", in November. Its cover artwork marks the return of the collaboration between Anton and Roman Ismailov who was the original illustrator and graphic artist for BATTLE BEAST. Additionally the band can proudly announce that they have signed a worldwide record deal with the famous heavy metal powerhouse Nuclear Blast. More info on BEAST IN BLACK's debut album coming soon...!

Anton Kabanen stated: "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 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".

BEAST IN BLACK is:
Yannis Papadopoulos | vocals
