”In short, this is an impressive album by this young band.” – Some will never know 85/100

”Another discovery, this time it sounds like Janis Joplin goes Metal with some Iron Maiden influences and some hard rock influences from the 80′s.” – Peek-a-boo Magazine 83/100

”The band has the ripping, shredding, blasting heavy metal composure down pat, along with the skills to bring everything together; the lead guitarist is an absolute maniac on the fret board and shows off his talents on nearly every track, drummer Mattias flogs the skins on his kit with variety at a blistering pace, the rhythm guitar uses an array of up and down strummed power chord progressions and the bassist beckons the utmost respect with his fluid developments.” – Volumesofsin.com 7 av 10

Wenn Beast ein Boxer wäre, würde er den Knock-Out suchen und nicht versuchen über die volle Distanz zu gehen. Neun Songs, neun Kinnhaken, die dich seltsam befreit zurücklassen. Starkes Debüt! – Trashrock

”Definitiv eine DER Rock Platten des Jahres!” – Ben Soulseller Magazine

”Muy recomendada” – metal4all.net  7,5 av 10

”BEAST spielen ruppigen Garagen-Sound mit wütender Punk-Note, den eine ausdrucksstarke Sängerin wahrlich veredelt, falls es die hohe Spielkultur der Gitarristen nicht für die anvisierte Klientel richtet.” – musikreviews.de 12 av 15

The band released three singles and ep’s during 2011 and 2012, and made a name for themselves with their energetic live performances which took place all over Sweden. BEAST has toured with Danko Jones and played at major festivals such as West Cost Riot as well as underground gigs all across the country.
The debut album was recorded in Studio Cobra with engineer Konie Ehrencrona who previously has worked with artist such as Dundertåget, Håkan Hellström and In Solitude. The recordings have been mixed and mastered by Ola Ersfjord in Sun Studios, Ireland. Hakim Krim from Dead Lord visited the studio and is featured on the song Outracin’ Hell.
