Battle Beast (Finland): Unholy Savior (Nuclear Blast Records)

Battle Beast (Finland): Unholy Savior (Nuclear Blast Records)
2015 started off with a new band to us: Battle Beast. These guys have been around since 2008 and are a big deal in Finland, apparently with many accolades from winning battle of the bands contest to chart toppers.
They are capable musicians with two other albums under their belts. Unholy Savior is a release that will confuse the listener. They are all over the place with their Europower metal influence to club pop rock ballads.
They are trying to cover a lot of ground with one album. Funky keyboard driving pop songs like "Touch me in the Night" and "Angels Cry" are outright embarrassing.
We are jaded and ugly so we are probably NOT the people to enjoy this, BUT if you like Wisconsin cheddar (we do in our food!) cheese topping off that fried Twinkie with a touch of power sugar, you came to the right place...enjoy!
2015 is off to a weak start, but we got Napalm Death, Hate, UDO, Venom to look forward too...YES!!
