Helsinki’s epic heavy metallers Battle Beast have started out strong in 2015 by releasing a new album, and touring relentlessly. On the road supporting Unholy Savior (Nuclear Blast) which dropped in January, the band has been supporting the likes of Sabaton and Delain among others. They are just getting warmed up, and the live arena is where they flourish as a group. Catching them in a more intimate setting close to home, TJ Fowler shot the band at Henry’s Pub in Kuopio for this dynamic photo set for Ghost Cult.

Interviewing Grave Digger’s Chris Boltendahl, TJ and Chris talked about the bands upcoming album due next month, Return of the Reaper (Napalm Records). Being that the festival was their first show of what stands to be a long touring cycle, they discussed creating the set list, the new album, the history of the band, creativity with album artwork, Star Wars, and their past fascination with concept albums. Special thanks to TJ for letting us share this interview.

TJ spent last week At the Metalfest Loreley, Germany covering the festival and interviewing bands. One such band he interviewed was Sabaton, coming off their triumphant new album Heroes (Nuclear Blast). TJ was cool enough to allow Ghost Cult to also run his interview. In this often hilarious interview, TJ along with Joakim and Chris from Sabaton covered the new album, finding new lyrical themes about wars, touring  behind the new album, and future touring plans in 2014. Thanks for sharing TJ and keep up the good work!
