Editorial Reviews

BATTLECROSS incorporates many elements of extreme thrash, death and tech metal, creating a precise blend of fist pumping brutality, intensity, and drive that satisfies both the tech-metal guru and the old-school die hard alike. This culmination of innovation, persistence, power, and aggression has earned BATTLECROSS, what some say, its own genre: Blue Collar Thrash Metal, proudly referencing the hard working, never give up attitude displayed by those hailing from the Motor City. Being huge metal fans themselves, they are highly influenced by bands like Pantera, The Black Dahlia Murder, Testament, GWAR, Sepultura, Metallica, and Slayer.

With the mindset to create a sonic metal assault unlike nay other, childhood friends Tony Asta and Hiran Deraniyagala set forth on the path to shred & abandoned the idea of following any trends. The guitar slinging duo brought an infused style of old school metal with dark elements of thrash and death metal. Struggling for years to find reliable and dedicated members, the true formation of BATTLECROSS was born in 2007, when drummer Mike Kreger responded to a want ad, and added a machine-like, brutal precision on the drums and proved to be just the right match for Tony and Hiran s mature and technical style of thrash. Bringing a whole new level of musicianship and intensity with his quick finger picking and tasty solos, bassist Don Slater joined the group, bringing a skill and technique that impresses even the most prolific bassists. The thrash metal band was finally complete when popular area vocalist, Kyle Gumby Gunther, joined the band. Known for his command of the stage and alternating deep growls with high pitched screams, Gumby punishes the audience and inspires pits of rage.

Together, the five-piece create an unforgettable and energetic live show that decimates their audience. Sharing the stage with the likes of Dying Fetus, GWAR, Devil Driver, The Absence, Vital Remains, The Faceless and Metal Fists throughout the Midwest, BATTLECROSS began to bang heads nationally with a nod from MySpace A Place for Metal s 2008 Best Unsigned Metal Band contest for being Metal Sucks worthy and being featured on local, national and global metal radio. Mike Kreger has also gained recognition and was crowned as Sickdrummer.com & Zildijian s Sickest Dirt Fest Drummer in the same year.

Short but sweet: this is a modern thrash album in the sense that it is the latest offering from Battlecross, and it does have some of the modern sensibilities latter day thrash metal has adopted. The raspy vocals for one are the only thing that really put me off, when he used the more "death" growl vocals, that's when I can really appreciate it.

Great production; very dense, heavy and thick -the guitars are devastating, you can actually hear the bass (not all the time) but it's there! The drumming is top notch -very precise and technical. These guys weren't joking when they wrote this album.

I very much recommend this album to thrash enthusiasts -heavy, dense and brutal thrash metal, it will melt your face off!

Album is amazing! Battlecross seamlessly, effortlessly blend elements of classic Thrash (i.e. Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax) with modern Heavy Metal in a relentless audio assault on your ears. If you're lookin for a new-ish band to give you a joygasm/eargasm, then look no further.

This is by far one of my favorite albums of the last 5 years. The entire album is a sonic punch in the face. Trust me you will not be disapointed with this.

I saw these guys live last year in Dallas, Tx. They blew my mind with ferocity in their music and along with their performance on stage. Every song on this album is great to listen to. If you are a fan of good old fashion, dig down, heavy metal music, you will love this album along with every song. The songs bring you back to a time of metal music when it was nothing but pure ferocity and rage in every song. The lyrics of the songs are written perfectly too to go with song music of the song. All in all, awesome....

I had never heard of these guys until I saw them live a short while ago. I was impressed and bought both albums. These guys embody the spirit of what metal used to be. Not sure I would call this a return to thrash, but this is aggressive, well-executed metal. Battlecross is the best new band I have found in a long time.

Highly recommended.

I LOVE the Amazon metal samplers. I have gotten hooked on a number of bands through them, but my favorite that they introduced me to has to be Battlecross. They play brilliant, hard-hitting thrash that is right up my alley. I've played this one over and over and still love it. If you like this also pick up their latest one (as of this writing anyway) "War of Will". For under 20 bucks you'll get all the awesome Thrash Metal you can handle for quite a while.
