Less than one year since the release of their enormously successful debut album Berserker, up and coming metallers BEAST IN BLACK are currently putting the finishing touches to their highly-anticipated sophomore record in guitarist Anton Kabanen‘s home studio. But before their fans can listen to the group’s new tunes, the band are ready to reveal the title of the album, which will see the light of day on February 8, 2019 through Nuclear Blast – just before their very first, recently announced EU headline tour with Finnish electronic crossover band TURMION KÄTILÖT kicks off!

Comments the band, “Sometimes it felt like hell working so much and so hard on the second BEAST IN BLACK album, but we put our hearts fully into it. Well, this is for you guys, From Hell With Love!”

More details will be revealed soon, stay tuned!

Helsinki-based five-piece 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 had played their first gig, where they opened for NIGHTWISH.

Berserker was produced by Anton in his Sound Quest Studio. 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.

Berserker maintains the style of Anton‘s previously composed works, which include the first three BATTLE BEASTalbums. Influenced by 80’s metal bands such as JUDAS PRIESTMANOWARW.A.S.P.BLACK SABBATH and ACCEPT, the record contains all the elements of a great heavy metal album. It’s very straightforward, catchy, powerful and occasionally mixed with some symphonic influences,” Anton adds. Lyrically, Kabanen also continues his previous style: “Many songs such as the title track, ‘Beast In Black’, and ‘Zodd The Immortal’, are strongly influenced by the Japanese manga and anime Berserk.”
