Band formed by former BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen and continuing the sound from the Unholy Saviour album, the BEAST IN BLACK album is MASSIVE sounding melodic metal. The title song itself is pure Judas Priest at their most ferocious, with added Euro metal, as it seems only Finland can produce.
Every song is a collossal earworm with more hooks than pinhead's face! I honestly can't rate this album highly enough. Two phenomenal shredding guitars players and fronted by Yannis Papadopolous who gives THE best male vocal performance of the year. Think Halford at his 'Sin After Sin' highest and 'painkiller' most ferocious, but with an AOR mix given over the heavy metal sound.
Simply, melodic rock doesn't get any more melodic or er...rock, than this.
I urge you to get a listen to this. Links to two songs here.

And 'Ghost in the Rain' is the best AOR ballad of the year!https://open.spotify.com/track/7t0qFmR25oC6gf5NQ6Hpel?si=qB-HAnGMQNmNzHPZR2CqMQ
