Battle Beast released No More Hollywood Endings in March through Nuclear Blast Records. The Finn party power metal band romped through The Fillmore Silver Spring recently to open Kamelot, and fellow Finn Paivi Salonen was there to capture all of the action.
The 11 featured songs on the new album were recorded by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, Viktor Gullichsen and guitarist Joona Björkroth at JKB Studio; the record was also produced and mixed by Janne.
“The heavy songs are heavier, pop-delights brighter, rock vibes stronger, and sounds richer than before. The emotional scale is wider, and everything is bigger,” Janne said.
