Last week, Battlecross unveiled the title, cover art, and first single from their upcoming new album, War of Will. This week, the Battlecross lads have posted the first of two studio videos. The clips were filmed entirely by the band as they were holed-up at Audio Hammer Studios in Florida. In this first instalment, fans will be treated to raw video of session drummer Shannon Lucas tracking songs for the album, as well as other candid clips from throughout their time in the studio. Watch clip #1 at this location. At that page, fans can also stream Force Fed Lies  and pre-order the album.

Battlecross 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 by famed producers Mark Lewis and Eyal Levi, the sophomore effort from 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. Levi comments on the album:

War of Will triggers a strange Déjà Vu while feeling completely brand new.

After a fist-pumping debut, impressive breakout tours in 2012, Battlecross will continue their climb as one of metal’s most impressive new bands with appearances at Orion Music +More with Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones and Suicidal Tendencies in the band’s hometown of Detroit and the 4th Annual Gwar-BQ with Municipal Waste and Corrosion of Conformity.

War of Will will be released on 8th July 2013 via Metal Blade just as the band head out for the summer on the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour with Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth, Mastodon and more. For tickets and details, head to the official Rock Star Mayhem website.

Shannon Lucas releases statement regarding his departure from The Black Dahlia Murder

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 7th November 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Shannon Lucas had been sitting out of the current Black Dahlia Murder tour with Alan Cassidy (Abigail Williams) standing in for him (or in this case, sitting in for him). Shannon released a video statement saying that he’s departing from drum duties in The Black Dahlia Murder to focus on other things in life. The video statement can be viewed below. The short version of the statement is that Shannon is leaving the band, he helped BDM pick Alan Cassidy as the replacement and that Cassidy is not a permanent replacement.

This is the second time this year that The Black Dahlia Murder have had a new member on tour with them without any prior announcements – The first being Max Lavelle who made his debut with the band back in January, three months prior to it being announced that Ryab “Bart” Williams would remain in the band as a collaborator for writing and recording.
