But these concerts are just the beginning of a promising 2018 for the band featuring ex-BATTLE BEAST guitarist Anton Kabanen – on Saturday, February 17th the band will kick off their European run with Italian symphonic metal legends RHAPSODY, before heading to Japan and then playing several European summer festivals.
Additionally, BEAST IN BLACK are pleased to announce that their new permanent drummer is Atte Palokangas. He has been touring with the band since the end of 2017 and is a worthy successor for former drummer Sami Hänninen who left the band recently.
“Due to new circumstances in my life, I’m not able to take part in the upcoming shows nor tours and I feel the band, especially in its early stages, requires a drummer who will be able to give their absolute hundred percent for the band.” – Sami Hänninen
“I’m honoured, excited and thankful for this opportunity! I can’t wait for future adventures with the guys!” – Atte Palokangas
