2014, CJ Snare (Firehouse) and Chris Green (of Pride/Furyon) first met while on tour in Europe when they shared the stage at a rock festival in Madrid. A close friendship was forged through sharing a decade of life experience that would ultimately serve as the creative nucleus for this project. Together they formed Rubicon Cross. With the addition of Pride/Furyon bassist Simon Farmery (who co-wrote, ,,Save Me Within"), Seventh Omen drummer Robert Behnke, and second guitarist Jeff Lerman, Rubicon Cross became a band of brothers, willing to tackle the music, the road, and bring life to these songs of fight, commitment, and connection. The lush melodic core of the songwriting is given a forceful, aggressive boost on this record. From the first single, ,,Bleed With Me" that starts just as propulsive as it ends to ,,Kill Or Be Killed" that has a relentless metal drive, Rubicon Cross is a collection of contemporary heavy music that sits just as comfortably next to hard rock classics as it does modern rock upstarts.
