BATTLECROSS
PURSUIT OF HONOR
METAL BLADE

Furiously ripping through 11-tracks of explosive skull pounding blasts of heaviness, Michigan quintet Battlecross unleashes a top shelf mix of punchy modern metal on their debut entitled PURSUIT OF HONOR. Ferociously channeling death metal melodies from fellow statesmen The Black Dahlia Murder while employing Maiden interpreted guitar heroics third hand from As I Lay Dying, Battlecross uses these elements merely as a springboard to launch past obvious influences into new levels of mayhem. Sporadically interjecting shards of Swedish metal sweetness, galloping metal majesty, and organic old school thrash metal rage, Battlecross assuredly delivers a crushing presentation brazen with the kind of memorable metallic moments the extreme end of the spectrum can repeatedly enjoy (“Breaking You” and “Push Pull Destroy”).
