After re-signing with Nuclear Blast in early 2021, Finnish heavy metal sextet BATTLE BEAST announces its new album “Circus Of Doom”. The album is set to be released on January 21, 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band has shared the official music video for the second single “Eye Of The Storm”, directed by Tobias Andersson

Watch “Eye Of The Storm” below.

Guitarist Joona Björkroth comments on the single: “‘Eye Of The Storm’ is a song about the one thing that keeps your boat floating when the storms of the world try to sink you. It’s an empowering and uplifting song that works best with the volume turned way up to 11, so make sure to crank it up!”

Watch the previously released ‘Master Of Illusion’ below. 

“Circus Of Doom” was recorded at JKB Studios in Helsinki, Finland and produced and mixed by keyboardist Janne Björkroth, while the stunning artwork was created by Jan Yrlund.

“Our goal was to make an interesting and absorbing album, with both lighter party songs and heavier stuff as well,” explains Björkroth. “In a way the whole album is like a joyful day at the circus. Full of enchanting surprises and wild carnival atmosphere.”

01. Circus Of Doom

The band comments: “The long nightmare is finally behind us and the future’s looking bright! We really poured our heart and soul in this album and can’t wait to present it to you both on record and live on stage. Damn, how we’ve missed touring!

“You are all heartily welcome to this feast of joy and horrors — the Circus Of Doom.”
