BEAST IN BLACK - ALBUM OUT NOW
Last Friday, the international powerhouse BEAST IN BLACK released their long awaited third album "Dark Connection".
But that´s not all, they have another surprise for their fans with the release of the striking new video for third single "Hardcore", taken from the new album.
"Welcome to the next century. Dark connections and prohibited pleasures is the name of this ultimate game, a reality within reality. Some things are just too irresistible not to taste, even when it's your own life that is at stake." Anton Kabanen comments, as he sums up the core message of the video.
"Time to reveal the naked truth and face the judgment. What you're about to witness is the result of an unapologetic and unforgiving vision inspired by the mind bending works of Hajime Sorayama and raw cyberpunk animes of the 90's, namely, 'AD Police Files: The Phantom Woman'.
For your pleasure, or your slight, we present you: 'HARDCORE'!"
And there is one more highlight the band has in store - the amazing video game that they developed for their fans. You can play and get addicted here: https://beastinblack.com/game
Produced, recorded and mixed by Anton Kabanen himself as well as mastered by Emil Pohjalainen (Amethyst Sound Productions), »Dark Connection« may feature the most prominent synths of all of BEAST IN BLACK’s recordings so far, especially in the form of the Italo disco, Euro beat and symphonic elements that the band are so widely loved for. Despite that, at its core it’s still all about simple heavy metal.
The kind of ageless melodies that Kabanen has always been able to create. These tunes once again melt with heroic stories that are rooted in sci-fi, fantasy and cyberpunk, that are represented in the artwork of the band’s long-time companion Roman Ismailov.
