Finland – a mine of talented newcomer bands since the year one. With Battle Beast from Helsinki, Nuclear Blast are happy to welcome one of the most promising combos of this flourishing scene aboard!

Founded in 2008, the band already attended the W:O:A Metal Battle in their home country two years later and won the national contest, which enabled them to perform at the Wacken Open Air in Germany and represent Finland in the international Metal Battle finals. Battling 26 other bands from all around the world, Battle Beast emerged victorious. Under these circumstances a record deal with the world's biggest independent Heavy Metal label seems to be the only logical consequence.

Andy Siry, head of A&R at Nuclear Blast, agrees: "Young, dynamic but still deeply rooted in traditional Heavy Metal – Battle Beast breathe new life into the scene and rekindle the sound of the 80s with a fulgent livery.

"The well-deserved victory at the W:O:A Metal Battle 2010 was the first important step to which we want to live up by supporting these up-and-coming talents energetically. We're looking forward to the cooperation!"

The band also expresses their joy. Guitarist Anton commented: "We feel honoured that Nuclear Blast show their interest in Battle Beast by releasing 'Steel'. Many thanks to our partners, closest people and most of all to our fans who believed in us and gave us their support. The journey continues!"

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.
