Helsinki-based five-piece BEAST IN BLACK was founded by Anton Kabanen soon after he had parted ways with BATTLE BEAST in 2015. By the end of 2015 the band had played their first gig, where they opened for NIGHTWISH.

Berserker was produced by Anton in his Sound Quest Studio. Its cover artwork marks the return of the collaboration between Anton and Roman Ismailov who was the original illustrator and graphic artist for BATTLE BEAST.

Berserker maintains the style of Anton’s previously composed works, which include the first three BATTLE BEASTalbums. Influenced by 80’s metal bands such as JUDAS PRIESTMANOWARW.A.S.P.BLACK SABBATH and ACCEPT, the record contains all the elements of a great heavy metal album. “It’s very straightforward, catchy, powerful and occasionally mixed with some symphonic influences,” Anton adds. Lyrically, Kabanen also continues his previous style: “Many songs such as the title track, ‘Beast In Black’, and ‘Zodd The Immortal’, are strongly influenced by the Japanese manga and anime Berserk.”
