Noora Louhimo (Battle Beast) Says Her Upcoming Solo Album Will Feature “Soulful Blues Rock With Country Influences”

During a recent interview with Finland’s Kaaos TV, Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo discussed her upcoming solo album. According to her, the effort will feature “soulful blues rock with country influences.”

Louhimo said the following:

“A couple of more songs [need to be] done, [and] then the material is there, and then we are doing the arrangements. For example, I’m going to have some horn sections and real instruments in this album. So this is going to be, music-wise, soulful blues rock with country influences, and I really want to involve here real instruments and really pro musicians. So I’m really excited that I can actually go not just to the roots music-wise but also with the instruments.”

She continued after being asked if it was important to go in a different musical direction than Battle Beast:

“Of course, it’s important. And I really feel like, because I have different sides as a musician, and my roots, as a musician, is in blues music and in soul music, so I really want to show that side also to the audience — that I’m not just about heavy metal, but I want to show the people where I come from. And also I really don’t want to compete with my own band [laughs], because I think it’s really good that people can see different sides of me as a musician and as a person. And in the album, all the lyrics will be about my personal life, so I’m gonna show people myself in a whole new level.”

On another note, Louhimo also confirmed that Battle Beast have started writing material for their next album:

“The songwriting process has already started for the sixth BATTLE BEAST album. And Joona [Björkroth, guitar], Janne [Björkroth, keytar] and Eero [Sipilä, bass], who are primarily the songwriters, they have been doing some stuff. And I’m waiting to get to the demo sessions and see what they have been writing.”
