It's been 7 long years since the last album of these Chilean heavy metal warriors, but finally the follow-up to their 3rd full-length is here and it's their most varied one to date. BATTLERAGE have been always struggling with line-up problems, but one constant remains: the original vocalist, Fox-Lin Torres, who now became the main songwriter. His unmistakable gruff voice, with tons of passion and rough energy, along with the hard hitting old school heavy metal with the most impressive guitar work, will have many metal hearts pumping faster for sure! As uncompromising as before, but with new facets to their songwriting, standing with one foot firmly planted in US metal (CIRITH UNGOL, METAL CHURCH, OMEN...) and one in European metal, especially the Teutonic metal of the '80s (GRAVE DIGGER, TYRANT, PARAGON, SACRED STEEL...), they are once again fighting for a true metal victory, though the style is better described now as just plain heavy metal. They've exchanged the axe for the sword, no less deadly but oh so much more versatile. From speed metal bullets to mid-tempo fist-raisers, the album packs everything you can expect from BATTLERAGE, but often with a new and unexpected twist to it. Reinventing themselves while remaining themselves, this is surely their strongest and most original album so far.

• The long awaited 4th studio album of these heavy metal veterans of the Chilean scene, formed in 2002.
• Professional recording and production resulting in exceptionally clear and powerful sound meeting the highest modern standards, but at the same time staying old school enough for the traditional heavy metal style.
• Extraordinarily talented musicians; top-notch guitar solos.
• A professionally filmed and edited video clip for the title track with ca. 5000 views on YouTube as of five weeks prior to the release date.
• For fans of: Grave Digger, Cirith Ungol, Metal Church, Omen, Tyrant (Ger.), (old) Blind Guardian, Paragon, Sacred Steel, Ironsword...
