new album - axe to grind, out now !

Finally "Axe To Grind" has been released. The new album is out on Hells Headbangers. First out will be the CD version, but already at end of July or early August the album will be available as 12" vinyl in black and blue.
Mastered by Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica, Morbid Angel, Blind Guardian) and mixed by Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Anvil), Witch Cross’ Axe to Grind is the band’s first full-length of all-new material since 1984?s heavy metal classic Fit for Fight.

 

Picking up where they left off in the glorious '80s, WITCH CROSS nevertheless inject their trademark power & glory with a newfound urgency and grit that never betrays their roots in the ancient ways of heavy metal mayhem. Neither "old school" nor "new school," WITCH CROSS prove that the masters are back - and school's in session!

Chris is best known for his work with many heavy metal bands, including Judas Priest, Anvil, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Helloween, Angra and Yngwie Malmsteen.
