City Slang: Battlecross crashes Billboard

Posted By on Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 8:57 PM

Local metal-heads Battlecross have seen their War of Will album debut at number 134 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart, number 118 on the top current albums chart, number 2 on the heatseeker chart, number 15 on the current hard music chart, number 16 on the hard music overall chart, and number 32 on the independent albums chart.

A statement from Metal Edge Records reads, “This marks the band's first ever Billboard chart debut! " BATTLECROSS comments on the chart debut: "This is just amazing! We are really grateful and honored that fans like our record enough to pick it up when there are so many great releases out this summer. We're truly humbled by this outpouring of support and we are very proud that War of Will is getting such great reviews from around the world. We share this achievement with Co-Producers Eyal Levi and Mark Lewis from Audiohammer Studio, our management, and Metal Blade Records, as they've been a huge part of this record. Thank you to everyone!"
