battlecross war of will album cover 1

Battlecross is an American modern death metal band showing European flar. With War Of Will, they offer a bit more melody and atmosphere then most. There’s a crisp, punchy sound with a triple vocal tone attack – from a hatecore screech to a brutal low growl. Battlecross offers unusually inspiring lyrics, compared to ‘evil reigns king’ type bands. Unfortunately, vocals remain unintelligible, so the message is diluted, unless you have their lyrics printed. Nearly every well-crafted tune has a dual ‘lead’ guitar line with both parts in close harmony. They’ve got a solid rhythm section, which sets a blistering pace.
