Every time Brazil’s Sepultura release a new album, there is a buzz of curiosity with fans wondering if they will return to their beginnings.

Battlecross have already carved themselves an impressive trail since debuting in our Death Match arena two weeks ago. After dispatching of Skeletonwitch with 'Force Fed Lies,' Battlecross claimed an even more impressive win in their latest battle against Testament.
