Lorraine Cross is a classic speed metal/heavy metal band, born in France in 2012. Having played many successful gigs in their native country in the following years, the album Army Of Shadows was recorded and engineered by François Merle (Manigance) and mastered by Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Gamma Ray, Pretty Maids) in early 2016.
Soon after the band landed a deal with Mighty Music. The music of Lorraine Cross is a mix of influences like US Hard Rock, British Heavy Metal and German Speed Metal. But even if Iron Maiden, Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest or Helloween are the inspirations, the heart of Lorraine Cross beats in France. France and its tormented past, hence the name…LORRAINE CROSS, the symbol of Free French Forces during World War II. An iconic symbol, for all those who refuse to surrender and to live on their knees. Like Guillaume‘s grandfather, a French resistant who was nearly shot by a German fire squad. He was like his brother in arms, one of the anonymous martyrs fighting oppression. He was one, from the Army of Shadows. (from Amazon)
The band released their first ever music video for the song “At Close Range”, the second single from Army of Shadows.
The cool performance video shows the band playing in rough surroundings in what seems to be a run down factory. The video compliments the band’s powerful performance and great stage presence.
