Nuclear Blast


Holy sh..t, where have these guys come from ? From Finland and this explains a lot. The story says that BATTLE BEAST won a contest for the best new heavy metal act and many labels offered to sign them, but finally they chose Nuclear Blast. A good choice for a label, since these youngsters have a lot of talent and show a maturity in composing songs that is unlike their age and impressive for a debut album. As the title of their album suggests, they play nothing more than traditional heavy metal inspired by the great 80’s sound. I think that they draw influence from bands like ACCEPT, RAINBOW, RUNNING WILD and of course IRON MAIDEN, but the great thing with them is that they give their own interpretation to their influences. Also a big plus to the sound of the band is their female singer Nitte Valo (does she has any relation with the HIM singer?) whose voice is characteristic and influenced by singers like DIO, Udo and Jutta (ZED YAGO). “Steel” is a pleasant surprise for me and I think that BATTLE BEAST along with KATANA are by far the best newcomers that I have listened to lately. A must have for traditional metal fans.
