Battlecross  


Battlecross hails from Michigan and formed in 2003, putting out a self-released debut in 2010 before Metal Blade signed them to their ever-expanding roster, and three more albums have been released since then. As heard on 2013's War Of Will, Battlecross play frenzied, tight melodic thrash, highlighting stellar musicianship particularly with the guitar leads and drumming. The vocals are relentless and pretty harsh -- they alternate between a raspy shriek and a lower-pitched roar (giving the band a slight metalcore flavor), but both can wear on the listener after a while, though to be fair such vocals are commonplace among modern thrash bands.
