The Story Of The Beast

Beautiful Beast is a Hair Metal project initiated by singer and guitarist Julian Angel. Angel, who had already recorded two solo albums ('angel-rock.com' (2001) and 'Choreography Sucks' (2007)) started Beautiful Beast in 2010 along with fellow musicians Frank McDouglas (bass, keys, backing vocals) and Roland 'Ro Lee' Jahoda (drums). 

2011 saw the release of 'Adult Oriented Candy', a critically acclaimed musical (and optical) step back to the year 1989. Due to its huge success, Julian Angel started working on a new album immediately, but this time he went solo again: "I'm both a control freak and an enthusiast. I can't just record my guitars and vocals and then leave it. I can't stop. I feel the urge to lay down the bass lines, backing vocals and keyboards too; it's like a kid sitting in front of a bowl of candy".

15 months later in August 2012 'California Suntan' was released after a huge for-fans-only pre sale and recouped all production and manufacturing expenses after only one week - and without any media coverage yet. The Beast's second album emphasizes the party rock elements while still being backed by virtuous musicianship. 

So what's the difference between Beautiful Beast and Julian Angel? "With Beautiful Beast, be it a band or a one man show, I can live all my Hair Metal dreams while still reserving the 'right' to create other stuff as Julian Angel, the solo musician" he explains. 

Even in the face of great adversity Julian Angel and Beautiful Beast continue to deliver what their fans love so much. Some Hair Metal / Melodic Rock media and even mailorder outlets specifically seem to boycott anything that has 'Angel' written on it, but why let that stop you?
