BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). Metal Injection wrote, “Where Rise To Power makes its biggest statement is in not just the voluminous collection of intellectually engaging, yet fist pumping, riffs – check out The Big Four-ish shuffle of ‘Scars,’ the spidery, single note up-tempo flash of ‘Absence’ and the dynamic blips in ‘Spoiled’ – but how the arrangements create a sense of forward motion that keep the above-mentioned songs cogently flowing and seeming shorter than their actual running time.” In a 4/5 rating New Noise concurred, “With a fantastic replay value and a high riff per second ratio, Rise To Power is sure to win over a lot of new fans for the band,” while Metal Wani, in a 9.5/10 score, lauded “an album where every member played their best and shone like diamond in the rough, and this diamond will only be more and more polished day by day.” To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit:
