BEAST IN BLACK – Kick off Support Tour With Rhapsody

Finnish Power Metal band BEAST IN BLACK kick off their European trek supporting Italian Symphonic Metal legends RHAPSODY on their 20th Anniversary Farewell tour today! After this tour, the band will remain on the road for a while longer, in a tour that will include three dates in Japan and several dates in Finland. 

Recently, BEAST IN BLACK announced their new drummer Atte Palokangas. He has been touring with them from the end of 2017 and is a worthy successor to former drummer Sami Hänninen who left the band recently.

Sami stated:
“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 his absolute hundred percent for the band.”

Atte commented:
“I’m honored, excited and thankful for this opportunity! I can’t wait for the future adventures with the guys!”
