Founded in 2015 by Anton Kabanen after parting ways with his former band, Battle Beast, in which he was not only the founder of but also the creative force who oversaw every aspect of the music and promotion. Anton immediately went to work and formed a new band and this time he hand picked every member for not only their musical talent but also their personality characteristics.
Anton's first selection was Greek singer Yannis Papadopoulos whom he discovered on Youtube a few years earlier. Yannis' vocals can be described as mixture of Rob Halford, Bruce Dickenson, and Ronnie James Dio.
The next addition was Finnish guitarist Kasperi Heikkinen whom Anton had known from his previous bands Merging Flare and U.D.O..
On bass Anton brought in Mate Molnar, from Hungary, with whom he toured together when Mate's band Wisdom and Anton's band Battle Beast were supporting Powerwolf in Europe.
Initially Finnish drummer Sami Hanninen was handling the drum duties for the band's first live shows and the album recording but shortly before the band was going to embark on its first full tour Sami made the decision to step away from the band and they parted ways. In need of a touring drummer the band tapped Atte Palokangas for the scheduled shows. After those first shows the band decided that Atte was a perfect fit for them and they invited him to join as their permanent drummer.
The band went straight into the studio and created a debut record that really introduced the world to Beast In Black. Nuclearblast quickly signed a deal with BIB and the debut album Berserker was released in November 2017. Berserker shows the world that BIB are not limited to one genre of music and the album is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
