BATTLECROSS Streams New Song “Spoiled”

Monday, 29th June 2015

Detroit thrashers BATTLECROSS are streaming the song “Spoiled,” which comes from their forthcoming new album, Rise to Power. Rise to Power will be released worldwide on Metal Blade Records on August 21st. The record was produced by Jason Suecof, and mixed/mastered by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studios. Cover art was completed by Hungarian artist Péter Sallai (Sabaton, Sacred Steel).

Guitarist Tony Asta states: “‘Spoiled’ kicks in with a heavy rockin old-school vibe and progresses into a brutal more technical feel. It’s also a really fun song to jam.”

“The subject matter and lyrics of ‘Spoiled’ were inspired by the dependency on modern technology, more specifically the cyber world. An entire generation thrives from its use but does not know what it was like before the internet existed. It IS a great tool, although the magnitude of its impact on our everyday lives sometimes gives me the chills. This is the only song I had a hand in writing lyrics for and you can thank the ‘phone-gazing zombies’ for it.”
