Battlecross

Genre: Metal

Country of Origin: Singapore

Detroit’s BATTLECROSS have come a long way since their recent signing with Metal Blade Records in May 2011 and the release of their debut Pursuit of Honor in August 2011. Since its release, the single “Push Pull Destroy” was the #1 Most Requested Metal Track for five weeks (Sirius Liquid Metal Devil’s Dozen List), remains a staple on the Liquid Metal channel, and the track’s official video has racked up more than 750,000 YouTube views in the last six months. BATTLECROSS has received killer reviews across the internet and in print publications throughout North America and overseas, was named Band of the Month in Metal Hammer Norway and Metal Hammer Spain, and should be no surprise that this blue collar, hard-work ethic that comes from the band’s five musicians – Kyle “Gumby” Gunther/vocals, Tony Asta/guitar, Hiran Deraniyagala/guitar, Mike Kreger/drums, Don Slater/bass – translates into a potent force on record as well as on stage. BATTLECROSS inspires the tech-metal guru and the old-school die hard alike. Together the five-piece create a memorable blend of melody, abrasive aggression, and blunt brutality.
