Battlecross – Interview with Hiran Deraniyagala

Michigan mosh starters Battlecross last month released their latest album, ‘Rise To Power’, to great fan and critical acclaim, not least from ourselves here at PlanetMosh.

We tracked down guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala to Poughkeepsie in New York, during their stop off on band’s current North American tour with GWAR and Butcher Babies, to talk about the album, how the band respond to critics’ opinions of their output, the importance of touring – and how they want to get back to the UK and Ireland in 2016…

‘Rise To Power’ is out now on Metal Blade Records.
