ZEE PLANE, BATTLECROSS, ZEE PLANE!
Today Metal Blade releases Battlecross’ full-length debut, Pursuit of Honor, and to celebrate, the band has debuted a new video with our bro-bros over at Metal Injection. It’s for the track “Push Pull Destroy,” and it’s basically one of those so-called “warehouse” videos, except that it was filmed “at the Yankee Air Museum, located on the grounds of the historic Willow Run Airport… where Henry Ford mobilized his manufacturing base to contribute to the war efforts by mass producing the B-24 Liberators that provided American Air Power to win WWII for the Allies.”
In other words, for at least part of the video, the band is standing next to a big fucking airplane from World War II, which instantly makes the video cooler than if they were just in a warehouse. In fact, if I had my druthers, all the stuff with the band performing in those ruins (or whatever the hell they are) would have been swapped for more footage of the band with the plane. I don’t even care that Henry Ford was an anti-semite, he’s dead and the plane looks awesome.
Like I was sayin’, Battlecross’ Pursuit of Honor is out today on Metal Blade. Metal Injection also has a pretty cool time-lapse video of the album art being created; check that out here.
