Detroit, Michigan's BATTLECROSS have unveiled the title, cover art, and first single from their upcoming new album. Battlecross will triumphantly return as one of the true champions of American Heavy Metal with their devastating sophomore release, War of Will. Co-produced at Audio Hammer Studios with famed producers Mark Lewis and Eyal Levi, the sophomore effort form Detroit's newest soldiers of steel will soon prove as one of the most impressive follow-up releases, destined to become a heavy metal classic for fans of all sub-genres. "War of Will triggers a strange Déja Vu while feeling completely brand new" says Levi.
You can listen to their first single from the upcoming album, "Force Fed Lies" below.
Battlecross recently played their hometown at the Orion Music + More Festival in which Metallica's James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo made an appearance to introduce Battlecross who also delivered a spot-on rendition of Slayer's "War Ensemble" in tribute to late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

Butcher Babies are proud to announce the July 9th release of "Goliath" on Century Media Records.
The Los Angeles based band - frontwomen Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd, guitarst Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein, and drummer Chris Warner - wrapped their tour with Marilyn Manson in late February and went straight into the studio with producer Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Lamb of God, Hatebreed). The results offer an undeniable mission statement to the metal community: forget everything you think you know about the BUTCHER BABIES, because they've got their sights set to slay on "Goliath."
