Battle Beast Breaks Down In France

Currently embarked on a European tour, bad luck has struck the Battle Beast crew as the band is now broken down on the road. Battle Beast issued this update via Facebook:

"Bad news, everybody. Our tour bus is has broken down somewhere in southern France. The bus has lost all transmission making it impossible to drive another meter safely. When it came down to endangering our own and other road-users' lives, we were left with no choice but to stop.

Battle Beast Posts "Bringer Of Pain" Video

Finnish heavy metal crew Battle Beast release fourth studio record "Bringer Of Pain" last Friday through Nuclear Blast. Today the band has released another musical taster in the form of a music video for the album's title track. The clip was produced by Dark Noise Productions and can be seen below.

Bassist Eero Sipilä commented on the video: "Short story: We wanted to do a video which was simply about thrashing around. 'Bringer Of Pain' is the fastest and probably the least commercial-sounding song on the album, displaying a completely different side as opposed to the previous singles so it seemed like a perfect choice. Empty industrial hall, tons of smoke, tight jeans and lot's of headbanging – the classic metal video!" More...
