Metal Blade Records signs Battlecross
Official press release: Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the latest addition to its roster; Detroit Michigan's very own Battlecross. Incorporating many elements of extreme thrash, death and tech metal, creating a precise blend of fist pumping brutality, intensity, and drive, Battlecross satisfies both the technical metal snob and the knuckle-dragging metal jock alike. "We are extremely honored to join such a respected label and humbled by their belief in our music. We're stoked to be part of a label that has a great roster of bands we all admire and respect!" says guitarist Tony Asta. Hiran Deraniyagala (guitarist) adds, "We understand the hard work and pavement pounding that is required of a Metal Blade band and we are going to work our asses' off to show the world what we're about." "We have been keeping our eyes on Battlecross for some time now and watching the band grow into quite a beast. We feel confident that metalheads across the world will enjoy the ferocity and dedication that Battlecross will be bringing forth on their debut album as well as the stage," comments Kelli Malella of Metal Blade Records. The band's Metal Blade debut is expected this summer followed by a grueling tour schedule that will bring a face melting thrash metal assault.
