International heavy metallers BEAST IN BLACK will unleash their debut album Berserker, in three weeks via Nuclear Blast Records. To give their fans another musical taster of what to expect from this 10-track power package, the band founded by BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen have launched a lyric video for “Beast In Black”, over on YouTube. Based on a picture by Anato Finnstark / Finnstark Illustration (, the clip perfectly underlines the energy of the album’s opening track. Check it out now:

Anton commented:
“As well as the band name, this track was inspired by a character from the Berserk manga. Though the lyrics are directly connected to that character they are also speaking in metaphors about something personal. It’s one of the most powerful songs on the album and Kasperi’s guitar solo in this one is probably the best one on the whole album!”

More info & tickets:

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.”
