BATTLECROSS: 'War Of Will' First-Week Sales Revealed

"War Of Will", the new album from Michigan's BATTLECROSS, sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 134 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

Commented the band: "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!"

"War Of Will" was released on July 9 via Metal Blade Records. Co-produced at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida, the sophomore effort from Detroit's newest soldiers of steel is destined to become a heavy metal classic for fans of all sub-genres. The drum tracks on the CD were laid down by Shannon Lucas (ex-THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) following the departure of Mike Kreger earlier in the year.

The follow-up to 2011's "Pursuit Of Honor", "War Of Will" features a guest guitar solo by producer Jason Suecof. Eyal Levi handled engineering duties on the record and ARMORED SAINT's Joey Vera, who mastered the band's cover version of PANTERA's "Fucking Hostile", mastered the effort.
