War of Will is the second studio album by American extreme metal band Battlecross. Produced at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, FL, the work was released on July 9, 2013 via Metal Blade Records peaking at No. 2 on Heatseekers Albums during its first month while debuting at No. 134 on Billboard 200. Percussion for the album was performed by Shannon Lucas formerly of The Black Dahlia Murder after drummer Michael Kreger and the band parted ways. Additionally, Jason Suecof performed a string solo for the work.
Battlecross, however, do something different. While their sound definitely has surging old-school thrash at its core, it doesn't sound like old-school metal. Rather, it sounds the way we like to remember thrash: ridiculously fast, aggressive, and technical. With song after song blasting its way out of the album, War of Will feels as though it's trying to make good on its title by creating a kind of heavy metal endurance test for listeners to challenge themselves with. And while the album can be a gloriously exhausting experience, Battlecross keep things short enough to never feel as though they've overstayed their welcome, preferring to deliver their songs (for the most part) in sub-four-minute bursts.

It's a step up from War of Will in terms of overall energy, compositions and production, though I think it still suffers a little from the songs not being distinct enough - the first handful are solid as hell but I always find myself zoning out about halfway through the album. Either way, some awesome trashy death metal!
