"Battle Cry", the new video from the Australian traditional metal act DRAGONSCLAW, can be seen below. The song, which features a guest appearance by former VIRGIN STEELE guitarist and current BURNING STARR mainman Jack Starr, is a tribute to late RIOT guitarist Mark Reale.
"Battle Cry" comes off DRAGONSCLAW's sophomore album, "Judgement Day", which was released last week via Killer Metal Records.
Comented DRAGONSCLAW vocalist Giles Lavery: "We are extremely happy with how 'Judgement Day' has turned out. I feel we have our strongest batch of songs yet. There is more diversity musically than heard on the first album and we are ready to take no prisoners. There have been some killer metal albums released this past 18 months and we knew we had to rise to the challenge."
