The official lyric video for the song “Over The Top” from Finnish metallers BATTLE BEAST can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s self-titled sophomore album, which entered the official chart in the band’s home country at position No. 5. Released in Europe on May 17 via Nuclear Blast Records, the CD was produced and mixed by the band at JKB Studios in Helsinki and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The cover artwork was created by Claudio Bergamin (HALFORD, ARJEN A. LUCASSEN, MAGICA).

Comments the band: “Over the top — words to live by! This song perfectly sets the tone for our upcoming metal crusade next month.

“We’re stoked to get back on the streets and tour with all these great bands [POWERWOLF, MAJESTY, ASHES OF ARES and WISDOM]. It’s gonna be fun, it’s gonna be metal and it sure the hell is gonna be OVER THE TOP!! See you all next month!”

BATTLE BEAST last fall parted ways with lead singer Nitte Vänskä and replaced her with Noora Louhimo.

In an interview with Metal Divas, Noora explained how she ended up fronting BATTLE BEAST: “Last September (2012), I got a call from Anton [Kabanen, guitar] that they want me to join BATTLE BEAST. I had heard their music and loved the sound and the vocals, so the next day I called Anton and said I’m in.

Anton found me by accident on YouTube when he was searching for the new vocalist. He had been looking for a vocalist — male or female; [it did not] matter. The only thing that mattered was can that [he or she could] sing his songs without compromises.

“I’ve been singing since I was 4 years old. While being a huge fan of heavy metal of ’80s and a teenager, I had some classical singing lessons when I was 16 years old. Then at the age of 19, I started studying music in pop/jazz line. At the same time, I started doing some jam sessions at bars. There I found my first band (ADMIRAL OCTOPUS) in the blues bar. We used to play rock and blues music from ’60s-’70s and Janis Joplin was the reason I got the rasp in my voice. After ADMIRAL OCTOPUS, in 2011, I took part in a singing competition (‘Wanna Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’) at Henry’s Pub of Tampere and won it with Janis Joplin‘s ‘Piece Of My Heart’. That’s how my single ‘Relax’ was born.”

BATTLE BEAST‘s debut album, “Steel” — which was originally released in Finland in 2011 via Hype Records — was made available internationally on January 27, 2012 through Nuclear Blast Records.
