“Battlecross is well on its way…to become one of metal’s most powerful forces” – 10/10 Outburn Magazine

“A lean, mean, ass-kicking machine that doesn’t want to quit kicking your ass until there’s nothing left for it to kick” – Heavy Blog is Heavy

Last Friday Motor City thrashers BATTLECROSS released their long awaited third album “Rise To Power” via Metal Blade Records. This highly anticipated release entered the following Billboard Charts:

#103 Top 200 Current Albums
#137 Top 200 Albums
#4 Heatseeker
#14 Hard Music
#36 Rock
#23 Independent

 

Guitarist Tony Asta comments: “We love our fans and I often say they are the best on the planet. You know it must be true because we are proud to announce “Rise To Power” charted well, thanks to you. Thank you all for your support, see you all on the road!“

The album that Metal Sucks describes as “quite appealing, coming off as an accomplished synthesis of a wide range of styles…” can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Bandcamp and directly from Metal Blade Records.

The album can be streamed via Apple Music and Spotify.
A video for the song “Absence” is available for viewing HERE. The video was directed by David Brodsky of My Good Eye (Whitechapel, Revocation, Cannibal Corpse, GWAR).

“Rise to Power” was produced by Jason Suecof, and mixed/mastered by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studios. The cover art was completed by Hungarian artist Péter Sallai (Sabaton, Sacred Steel).

BATTLECROSS are currently on the road with label-mates GWAR and Butcher Babies on a North American tour stopping in Tulsa, OK and wrapping up September 18th in Rochester, NY. Following a short break BATTLECROSS will rejoin GWAR on the road alongside Born of Osiris (Cryptopsy in Canada) starting October 7th in Cincinnatti, OH and wrapping up November 28th in Orlando, FL.
