Album Info: Battle Cries was the band's debut album released on Pakaderm/Word records under the high production standards of John and Dino Elefante. The album was met with critical success and yielded over 6 top ten CCM singles, including All Together Now, The Waiting, Just a Man and If That Ain't Love.
The Brave produced a huge arena rock sound, laden with fiery guitars that were rich in melody and attitude, Def Leppard type harmonies, thundering drums and bass, all glued together with the Lou Gramm/Klaus Meine inspired vocals of James Salters.
Battle Cries was mixed by none other than Neil Kernon(the mastermind behind Queensrÿche's Operation Mindcrime and Dokken's Under Lock and Key), and together The Brave became a crowd and radio favorite, touring over 32 states in 3 months in support of an album that has garnered fans the world over, even after 20 years since its release.
