The wildest times call for the freest of voices. After selling millions of records, playing to countless fans, and fronting some of the most influential rock bands in history, award-winning songwriter and vocal dynamo Joe Lynn Turner speaks his mind as loudly as possible on his eleventh full-length offering and Mascot Label Group debut, Belly of the Beast. Joining forces with iconic producer Peter Tägtgren [Hypocrisy, PAIN, Lindemann], the New Jersey-born powerhouse conjures up the kind of heavy metal that not only makes you throw your fist in the air, but also makes you think.

"Belly Of The Beast is a phrase we’ve heard over and over again in history,” Joe Lynn Turner observes. “You can trace the cults and corruption all over the world back to prophecies in the Bible. It feels like it’s coming to fruition these days. When you look at the book of Revelation, there it is. I’ve always dipped into esoteric knowledge, Hermeticism, Occultism, Bible research, Eclectic philosophy. I’ve been fascinated with discovery of hidden mysteries. We are in a true spiritual war right now. It’s Good versus Evil. We’ve all got an Angel on one shoulder and a Devil on the other. We’re in the Belly of the Beast, trapped in the System, and there’s no way out of it. The album addresses this."

From founding and releasing 4 albums with Fandango in 1977, to performing and recording with Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force, Deep Purple, Glenn Hughes, Mick Jones, Cher, Lita Ford, Billy Joel, Michael Schenker, and Arjen Lucassen's Star One - Five decades into his career, Joe Lynn Turner releases the heaviest music he has ever recorded on Belly Of The Beast.
