Riot Radio – Battlecross – Absence

“…as I fear for the beast that cripples you…”

The most impressive collective of facial hair (and they’re pretty damn good musicians, and nice guys too) in metal returns with “Absence”, from their upcoming third record on legendary label Metal Blade “Rise to Power”. The song is up to BC’s usual standard of excellently heavy, catchy and quick, and the video gives a taste of what a blast it is to catch these guys live:

Battlecross’ “Rise to Power” is out this Friday August 21st on Metal Blade Records and is available for streaming now at Metal Hammer.  BC will be back in Philly with the mighty GWAR at the Electric Factory on November 12th.
