Finnish metallers BATTLE BEAST have commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2017's "Bringer Of Pain" album. "We started in the beginning of this year, doing the demos," singer Noora Louhimo told Antihero Magazine during a recent interview (see video below). "And when we get back [from the road], we continue doing the new album. So it's gonna be out next year."
Asked what fans can expect to hear on the next BATTLE BEAST disc, Noora said: "I don't wanna say anything too much revealing, but a hundred percent heavy metal. [Laughs]"
BATTLE BEAST's fourth album, "Bringer Of Pain", was released in February 2017 via Nuclear Blast Records. The ten-track disc was recorded and produced at JKB Studios by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, was mixed by Björkroth alongside Viktor Gullichsen and Mikko Karmila, and was mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The cover artwork was crafted by Jan Yrlund.
"Bringer Of Pain" was 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.
