After re-signing to Nuclear Blast in early 2021, the Finnish heavy metal sextet Battle Beast are once again getting ready to unleash their force upon the world in the shape of their brand new masterpiece Circus of Doom. The album is set to be released on January 21st 2022 via Nuclear Blast and in true Battle Beast  fashion, the 10 tracks blend true heavy metal with pop and rock-vibes, paired with Noora Louhimo‘s unique voice.

Today, the band have revealed a music video for their second single, ‘Eye of the Storm’, that you can watch here:

Guitarist Joona Björkroth comments on the single: “‘Eye of the Storm’ is a song about the one thing that keeps your boat floating when the storms of the world try to sink you. It’s an empowering and uplifting song that works best with the volume turned way up to 11, so make sure to crank it up!”
