Berserker has been unleashed!
International heavy metal group BEAST IN BLACK have released their highly anticipated debut album last week, through Nuclear Blast Records. To mark the occasion, the band with ex-BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen has launched another taster in the form of a brand new lyric video for ‘Born Again‘. The video also includes a studio performance by vocalist Yannis Papadopoulos and was shot and edited by Stergios Kourou. Check it out over on YouTube, here:

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 had played their first gig, as the opening act 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 BEAST albums. Influenced by 80’s metal bands such as JUDAS PRIEST, MANOWAR, W.A.S.P., BLACK SABBATH and ACCEPT, the record is nothing but a great heavy metal album. “It’s very straightforward, catchy and 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«.”
