    Album Description

    The ferocious power of Battlecross's debut album, "Pursuit of Honor," now available for the first time ever on stunning Blood Moon Vinyl. Originally released on Metal Blade Records in 2011, this thrash and metal juggernaut features the relentless anthem "Push, Pull, Destroy" – the #1 most requested song on Sirius XM Liquid Metal for an incredible 5 weeks in a row in 2012. Remastered for vinyl, this edition comes in a mesmerizing red with black marbling, encapsulating the intensity of Battlecross's sonic assault. Dive into the heart of metal history on March 29, 2024, exclusively on Backbreaker Records. says...

    "Rumbling over the top of this music juggernaut is vocalist Kyle Gunther, who will not be mistaken for anything less than a workhorse on the microphone. Employing a multitude of screams, roars and growls, it’s shocking there isn’t much blood emanating from his larynx on “Man of Stone.” All five musicians come together to perfect pit-worthy harmony on the low tuned future show action highlight “Breaking You,” the riffs and drum parts dive bombing in a back and forth jackhammer exercise guaranteed to inflict serious limb damage."

    Battlecross History

    Battlecross is an thrash metal band that originated in Canton, Michigan. The band was formed in 2003 by guitarist Tony Asta and drummer Mike Kreger. Over the years, Battlecross underwent several lineup changes before solidifying its roster. The band's lineup typically included Kyle "Gumby" Gunther as the vocalist, Tony Asta and Hiran Deraniyagala as guitarists, Don Slater on bass, and Alex Bent on drums.

    They gained recognition for their energetic live performances and a sound that blends elements of thrash, death metal, and groove metal. Battlecross released their debut album, "Push Pull Destroy," in 2010 independently. This release helped them build a following and led to them signing with Metal Blade Records.

    In 2011, Battlecross released their second album, "Pursuit of Honor," which received positive reviews and showcased their technical proficiency and aggressive style. The album's single, "Push, Pull, Destroy," became particularly popular and received significant airplay, including being the #1 most requested song on Sirius XM Liquid Metal for several weeks in 2012.

    Following the success of "Pursuit of Honor," Battlecross released "War of Will" in 2013. The album continued to showcase their intense and relentless approach to metal, featuring rapid guitar work, powerful drumming, and harsh vocals. "War of Will" further solidified their presence in the metal scene.

    "Rise to Power," released in 2015, marked another milestone for Battlecross. The album reached #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, demonstrating the band's growing impact and popularity.
