From the land of the thousand lakes, Battle Beast conquer the Dong hill. The Finnish sextet is notorious for turning any venue they rock into an immediate moshpit. No surprise, considering that the troops around front beast Noora Louhima are inspired by heroes of the 80s like W.A.S.P., Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden, interlacing their attributes with the stomping rhythms of contemporary power metal.
This blend proved successful shortly after the foundation in 2008, when the band won the world’s largest newcomer competition in 2010, a competition whose German final will be fought yet again on the next Dong Open Air: The Wacken Metal Battle. Their latest record “Bringer of Pain” pushed Battle Beast to the German Top 15 and had them play it in sold out venues. We are looking forward to see the reactions to their following album and are convinced that the fat riffing and Noora’s metal vocal chords will hit the right spot at the Dong!
