Commenting on the tour, vocal powerhouse Noora Louhimo states: 

”Battle Beast is coming to you sounding and looking better than ever before! We are very excited to unite our forces with Dragonforce for a North America tour. I think this will be an epic combination of heavy metal energy and our fans will be getting 300% of explosive entertainment with our new album ”Circus of Doom” let loose on stage. Get ready to be mesmerized with high screams, new horns and new Battle Beast.”

BATTLE BEAST’s eagerly awaited 6th studio album, “Circus of Doom,” features 10 tracks that blend true heavy metal with pop and rock-vibes, paired perfectly with Louhimo’s inimitable voice. “Our goal was to make an interesting and absorbing album, with both lighter party songs and heavier stuff as well. In a way the whole album is like a joyful day at the circus. Full of enchanting surprises and wild carnival atmosphere,” explains keyboardist Janne Björkroth.

The band just revealed a stunning music video for the first single, “Master of Illusion,” directed by Markus Nieminen, that you can watch here:
