Battle Beast is a Finnish heavy metal/power metal band established in Helsinki in 2008. The initial line-up consisted of guitarists Anton Kabanen, Juuso Soinio and drummer Pyry Vikki, who were high school friends. The rest of the original line-up, singer Nitte Valo, bassist Eero Sipilä and keyboardist Janne Björkroth, joined the band after auditions. Battle Beast’s first album, titled ‘Steel’, was released in Finland in Spring 2011. In Autumn 2012, after touring the Finnish rock festivals for the summer, Nitte Valo was announced to be leaving the band because of family issues. With the news of her departure, came the announcement of a new lead singer Noora Louhimo from Tampere, Finland. With Louhimo in the band, Battle Beast started another European tour in November, this time supporting the Finnish power metal band Sonata Arctica. In January 2015, Battle Beast released their third album ‘Unholy Savior’, topping the Finnish album chart on its release week. Soon after a European tour supporting Sabaton, in February 2015 the band parted ways with Anton Kabanen with both parties citing musical disagreements and other unsolvable issues within the band.
