Video Premiere: BATTLE BEAST's 'Familiar Hell'

January 13, 2017

"Familiar Hell", the new video from Finnish female-fronted metallers BATTLE BEAST, can be seen below. The clip was once again directed and produced by Markus Nieminen of Oy Routafilmi AB.

"Familiar Hell" is taken from BATTLE BEAST's fourth album, "Bringer Of Pain", which will be released on February 17 via Nuclear Blast Records. Recorded and produced at JKB Studios by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, the ten-track album was mixed by Björkroth alongside Viktor Gullichsen and Mikko Karmila, while mastering was done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The cover artwork was crafted by Jan Yrlund.

Commented BATTLE BEAST bassist Eero Sipilä: "'Familiar Hell' is probably our bravest adventure into hard rock territory thus far, displaying yet another side of the 'Bringer Of Pain' album. The unholy alliance of the crunching riff and catchy chorus makes the song an obvious candidate for a single. For the video, we did around 12 hours of shooting outside in late December, most of the time wearing nothing but our stage clothes. If that sounds cold or unpleasant to you, that's because it was. Luckily, it didn't rain — a lot. For all the pains we suffered to make this video, we definitely hope you will enjoy it!"

"Bringer Of Pain" is BATTLE BEAST's first album to feature guitarist Joona Björkroth, who joined the band in 2015.

BATTLE BEAST in February 2015 parted ways with lead guitarist and main songwriter Anton Kabanen due to "insurmountable disagreements" with the other members of the band.

BATTLE BEAST's third studio album, "Unholy Savior", entered the Finnish chart at position No. 1. The CD was released in January 2015 via Nuclear Blast.

BATTLE BEAST vocalist Noora Louhimo joined the band in 2012 as the replacement for Nitte Vänskä.
