For those who are into metal, you’d be hard-pressed these days to find somebody that doesn’t know who Noora Louhimo is. But, if you’re one of those few, never fear, for I will shed some much-needed light on your sad life.
Noora Louhimo has been the frontwoman of the heavy metal band Battle Beast since 2012, when she replaced Nite Valo. With a past in jazz, blues, and rock, she stormed her way onto the metal scene and quickly made a name for herself with her powerful, raspy, and epic vocal style.
This morning, Noora made the announcement of a solo project that will pay homage to her roots.
Here’s what her official Instagram and Facebook post says:
“This year I’ve been working on my first solo album with my band and can’t wait to get it out for you to listen. This might come as a shock to someone but my roots as a musicians comes from blues, jazz, soul and rock music. Before @battlebeastband I’d sing all other genres but heavy metal. I wanted to learn to sing in all possible ways but I didn’t know why – until 2012 when I was asked to join Battle Beast in which I’ve been able to use my voice in so many ways and is the best job to be the lead singer of the band. To give little bit something back to my idols such as Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Queen…. In my solo project it is time to go back to the roots…in many ways.“
