Battlecross‘ debut album, “Pursuit of Honor” has garnered rave reviews since it was released on Metal Blade Records in August. The label has unleashed music by some of the genre’s top acts, including Slayer and Metallica.
MetalAssault.com gave the album a 9.5 out of 10 rating, with the reviewer calling it “one of the most ‘complete’ heavy metal albums I have heard in recent times.”
The album’s title track has survived on the Devil’s Dozen chart for 26 weeks, including five weeks at No. 1. The Devil’s Dozen is the list of most-requested tracks on SiriusXm satellite radio’s Liquid Metal channel. The band’s new single, “Breaking You,” is also steadily climbing that chart.
