Up and coming metallers BEAST IN BLACK recently announced the release of their sophomore record titled From Hell With Love, for February 8, 2019 through Nuclear Blast. Just a few days before the group with former BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen embarks on an extensive European tour as special guest to Finnish symphonic metal giants NIGHTWISH (all dates can be found below), they are happy to unveil the cover artwork of their forthcoming album, which was once again created by Roman Ismailov.
Anton comments, "This album was forged with passion, fury, love, dedication and I would even dare to say with maniacal obsession. And once again the stunning artwork by Roman perfectly captures the essence of what it was made of. This album is truly a creation that will burst from hell with love."
Adds Roman Ismailov, "It resembles a love-hate relationship in things that are part of our lives. Some things are like a beast that is almost impossible to tame. Then there is the love in what you do, which can overcome even the hardest obstacles."
Bassist Mate Molnar states, "We got a big chance from NIGHTWISH to introduce ourselves to the greatest audience and this means that you can expect the wildest Beast on stage every night from this Friday until mid-December! We are extremely excited!"
In addition, more dates have been added to the band's From Hell With Love Tour 2019.
The current itinerary can be found below.

Berserker - Chart Entries:
Helsinki-based five-piece 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, where they opened 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 contains all the elements of a great heavy metal album. "It's very straightforward, catchy, 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."
BEAST IN BLACK is:
Yannis Papadopoulos | vocals
Mate Molnar | bass
Atte Palokangas | drums
Kasperi Heikkinen | guitars
Anton Kabanen | guitars, vocals
