We proudly present you "DIE BY THE BLADE" lyric video, our 2nd single from the upcoming album "From Hell With Love".
Anton states: "'Die By The Blade' is one of the Berserk manga related songs on the album and apart from its very straightforward song title, the lyrics deal with a deeper issue than it might seem at first glance. Music-wise it's a definite BEAST IN BLACK style heavy metal ear-worm and Yannis' powerful and emotional all-or-nothing type of performance deserves a special mention!"

31 December 2018
Happy New Year!

For us, 2018 was a big step ahead:
- Atte Palokangas officially joined the band on drums
- We SOLD OUT our very first headline shows in Jyvaskyla (Finland, Cap.: 530) and in Helsinki (Finland, Cap.: 900)
- Joined Rhapsody Reunion on their "20th Anniversary Farewell" tour for 5 weeks
- Played a short tour in Japan for the very first time
- Participated in 18 great summer festivals
- During the summer festival season we recorded the 2nd Beast In Black album
- Atte signed endorsement deal with Centent cymbals
- Beast In Black have been nominated for Metal Hammer Awards in "Best Debut Album" category
- Supported Nightwish on their "Decades" arena tour for 6 weeks; played in front of 10 thousand people/show in average
- Reached 10 million views on Youtube for "BLIND AND FROZEN" music video in less than 14 months
- Released our 2nd music video "SWEET TRUE LIES" which gathered 770 thousand views on Youtube in 1 month
- Announced February 8, 2019 as the release date of our 2nd album "From Hell With Love"
- Announced our first European headline tour entitled "From Hell With Love tour" including 30 shows for 2019 spring
- Announced some big festival shows for 2019 summer and many more is coming soon…

Well, that’s what we call big step(s) ahead but the motto is still the same:
As long as you are with us, we are stronger and stronger year by year!
2019 will show the band’s real strength. All headline tours are always big risks, especially the very first one. Although the ticket pre-sales are surprisingly great so far and some venues are SOLD OUT already, we have to entertain the audience for longer than ever and make them feel hungry for more after the end of the shows. That’s the real challenge now but we are looking forward to it!

Thanks for your support Guys, meet soon, have fun!
Atte, Kasperi, Mate, Anton, Yannis

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!"
20 May 2018

07 February 2018
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!"

31 December 2017
Happy New Year!

For us, 2017 was an unforgettable year:
- We signed with Nuclear Blast Records, the best metal label in the world
- Released our very first music video "BLIND AND FROZEN" which has more than 2,2 million views already in less than 4 months
- Agreed with Till Dawn They Count Ltd in a management deal
- Released our debut album 'Berserker'
- Signed booking deal with Contra Promotion GmbH and Fullsteam Agency
- Went on tour with Wasp although it ended sooner than expected
- Supported Beyond the Black in Germany for 2 weeks; we had nice memories and had a great time together, which made the band's spirit even stronger.
- Announced tons of summer festivals for 2018 and a short Japan run.
- Announced a tour for spring supporting the reunioned Rhapsody...

Well, can we expect better for next year? YES, of course!!!!
As long as you are with us, we are stronger and stronger year by year. 2018 will be a MURDER for us (as our management says)
Some great things are not announced yet, but be sure, we will go everywhere we can to unleash the Beast!

So thanks for your support Guys, meet soon, have fun!
Atte, Kasperi, Mate, Anton, Yannis, Sami

The debut album titled "BERSERKER" is set to be released in November 2017 and it continues in the style of Anton's previously composed works which include the first three Battle Beast albums.
And let it be mentioned that one of the essential themes on this debut is a Japanese manga and anime "BERSERK" .
The album cover art deserves a special mention as well, since it marks the return of the collaboration between Anton and Roman Ismailov who was the original illustrator and graphic artist for Battle Beast.
The time is drawing near. The newborn Beast is back with a vengeance, rising from the abyss with fortitude to spew its unrivaled heavy metal fury all over the world!
The Beast is back, the BEAST IN BLACK!

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".
