Dead Cross ‘Dead Cross’ Review: a stellar, punishing debut from hardcore supergroup.  Hardcore supergroup Dead Cross’s self-titled début (out August 4th via Ipecac) is one of the most anticipated albums of 2017. This shouldn’t be surprising: any band featuring former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and vocalist (and man of a 1000 bands) Mike Patton is worthy […]
