The circus has arrived in Milan – report of Battle Beast show at Legend Club

Author Benedetta Baldin - 14.2.2024

The vibrant atmosphere of a sold-out Legend Club in Milan was electrified as three powerhouse bands, Induction, Saint Deamon, and Battle Beast, took the stage for a night of high-octane performances. Each band brought its unique flair to the audience, creating an unforgettable experience despite some technical hiccups. Let’s go over the events of the night! A huge thank you to Mona Miluski of All Noir!


Kicking off the night, Induction seized the spotlight with their dynamic presence. The band’s engagement with the crowd was undeniable, creating an immediate connection. They were having fun on stage, and the audience could tell the feeling was genuine! My favorite moment was when we all sang along to “Go To Hell“, guided by the captivating voice of Craig Cairns. However, the energy was somewhat overshadowed by a prevalent issue with the bass overpowering the mix. This imbalance detracted from the otherwise immersive experience. It was a bit disappointing that no band member spoke a single word in Italian, leaving some of us yearning for a more personalized connection with the performers. All in all, a great start to the evening!

Saint Deamon

It’s time to kick things up a notch, with the second band of the evening, Saint Deamon. They swiftly took the stage with a burst of energy that reverberated through the venue. Their infectious enthusiasm and compelling melodies captivated the audience, despite some initial challenges with the audio mix. As the set progressed, there was a noticeable improvement in the sound quality, allowing the audience to fully appreciate the band’s musical prowess. The resilience of Saint Deamon in overcoming technical difficulties spoke volumes about their professionalism and dedication to delivering a memorable show.

Battle Beast

For the final band, the circus is literally coming to town. Battle Beast, the headlining act, entered with a cloud of anticipation and a burst of smoke that set the stage for a theatrical performance. They were very good at engaging with the crowd, fostering a sense of unity and excitement. However, the issue of an overpowering bass persisted, occasionally drowning out the intricacies of the music. Lead singer Noora’s vocals, while powerful, seemed to exhibit signs of strain, possibly indicative of the demanding tour schedule. Despite this, her stage presence and commitment to delivering an electrifying performance were evident throughout the set.
