You would think, that by now, I’d have learned my lesson, but no I still make the same mistake over and over.

Today’s mistake?  Listening to Battle Beast with the volume too low.

Battle Beast’s new album “No More Hollywood Endings” is out now on the Nuclear Blast label, and marks their fifth studio album.

For me, it has a definite big hair, big voice feel to it; with strong guitar riffs, and catchy choruses with plenty of key changes to make singing out loud even more of a challenge.

However, I’m not one to shy away from a challenge, and so I was determined to master at least one track before the end of the day – so I set my sights on “Endless Summer”.

The more I listened to it, the more Noora Louhimo proved just how good she is, although there were times that I could have argued that Pink was vocalist – whether that is a good or bad thing, I will leave to you to decide (personally I don’t think it’s a bad thing).

On the whole, I enjoyed the album a little more each time I played it… and I played it a lot.

My one recommendation is that you don’t try to listen to this under the cover of darkness, or when you’re in a library – Battle Beast deserve (no, they NEED) to be turned up loud and the album “No More Hollywood Endings” is definitely a “crank it up” kind of album – so do just that!
