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.
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.
He was replaced by Ossi Maristo and keyboardist Janne Björkroth's brother, Joona Björkroth, on a sessional basis. Joona Björkroth became a permanent member in 2016.
Battle Beast will release their fourth album Bringer of Pain on January 17th 2017.
