Battle-Beast---Bringer-Of-Pain---Artwork_res.jpgBattle Beast from Finland have released their fourth studio album Bringer of Pain. With groovy heavy metal, Battle Beast have created a signature niche for themselves.

What can you expect on Bringer of Pain? Think Sabaton, but even more over the top and cheesier, with a big dash of 80s kitsch. The result are short, catchy songs, carried by the strong vocals of leading lady Noora Louhimo. I recognize a bit of Sinergy in the music, but the overall result is more mainstream and almost radio-friendly work.

Even though there is a lot not to like about Battle Beast and their lack of frills, the songs do really work as earcatchers. Listen to a song of Battle Beast once, and chances are you'll be humming it a few hours later. They are that catchy.

If you want some pretentionless fun, and a great live show, Battle Beast are the band you need to check out. If you think a party metal band like Sabaton is already too far, then don't go for Bringer of Pain, since Battle Beast are a few levels of cheesiness more than Sabaton.
