Anton Kabanen founded the band in 2015 after he left his former band Battle Beast earlier in the same year. Like Battle Beast, the band’s name is a tribute to the Japanese manga and anime series Berserk.
Beast in Black signed with the Nuclear Blast label and released the first album, Berserker in November 3, 2017, which received a very positive response worldwide. The debut album ranked seventh on Finnish charts albums. In addition, Berserker also charted in Germany, United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland and France.
On February 7, 2018 it was announced that Atte Palokangas will replace Sami Hänninen as the permanent drummer. The band includes the Greek vocalist Yannis Papadopoulos (ex-Wardrum), the Hungarian bassist Mate Molnar (Wisdom) and Kasperi Heikkinen (former guitarist of bands as U.D.O., Amberian Dawn etc.).
The band’s second album, From Hell with Love, was released on February 8, 2019. After the release of the album, the band did their first headline tour in Europe with the Finnish industrial metal band Turmion Kätilöt as support.
Dark Connection is a new album (2021).
