BEAST IN BLACK – Dark Connection
The beast is back in black! And it‘s ready to crush the known boundaries of melodic metal! Beast In Black, the international battalion of ground-breaking melodic metallers, is ready to blow your mind with their third album ominously titled Dark Connection.
If you’re into melodic and atmospheric heavy metal with an insanely catchy twist, this is the album you’re looking for. There’s no other creature like this walking the earth. None other bears these sharp edged riffs or piercing choruses. Not with these epic sci-fi, fantasy and cyberpunk stories to tell. Beast In Black is a wholly unique form of heavy metal evolution.
Dark Connection is an album which gathers all the elements from past, present and future of Beast In Black leader, Anton Kabanen. The raw melodic energy of early Battle Beast remains, but now Beast In Black are crafting their own sound within the genre thanks to the utilisation of wildly melodic guitars and multilayered synthezisers.
Remember the glory days of 80’s metal? When you could spend hours and hours staring at the cover art of a heavy metal album as you start to discover what all the lyrics are about? Beast In Black is right there with you. Dark Connection is a deeply intricate heavy metal record. As you start to invest time into the songs, you’ll realise that there’s something interesting happening at every layer, from the music to the cover art and also the lyrics. It’s all tied up into one, to ensure the ultimate audio-visual metal experience.
Thirteen songs, a mountain of irresistible melodies and influences from the retro roots of music to a plethora of futuristic themes and atmospheres. Every single song from Dark Connection could be a single. Beast in Black could create a music video for every last track. That’s just how much dedication and passion has been immortalised in these songs.
All these moments on Dark Connection won’t be lost in time, like tears in rain. Beast is Black has created a lifetime heavy metal exprience. Are you ready to face this eternal beast?
