Battlecross Unveil Crushing ‘Flesh + Bone’ Lyric Video
Battlecross, the buzziest band in the metal underground, dropped the lyric video for their epic new track ‘Flesh & Bone.’ But this isn’t another video comprised of snoozy, CGI animation while the song’s words flash on the screen.
Instead, the lyrics spill over footage of the band performing live, murdering their instruments and banging their heads. These explosive live scenes were culled from the band’s performance at the Orion Music + More Festival, curated by Metallica and held last month in Battlecross’ native Detroit. So if you missed the event, you can relive it — or at least relive Battlecross’ performance — by watching this clip.
And that’s how you do a lyric video, since it’s pretty much a live concert performance with words scrawled overtop.
‘Flesh & Bone’ is a brutal, neo-thrash assault and it appears on the band’s upcoming album ‘War of Will,’ out July 9. If you like what you see here, then be sure to catch the band’s set at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. They’ll be on the tour all summer long.
In other news pertaining to the ‘Cross, they will drop an official music video for ‘Never Coming Back’ soon. It was just filmed so stayed tuned for its debut.
