Over the years the band experimented with other musical styles, going through a number of name and backing guitarist changes until ultimately becoming what they are today. Battlecry's style is a little hard to categorize other than to just lump it into the general metal genre.
Having roots in hardcore punk and drawing influence from many diverse artists including Billy Joel, In Flames, Loudon Wainwright, and Manowar, they have developed a varied and original style. The core of the group are AJ, Ben, and Dan, the three original members. AJ provides vocals and plays bass and keyboard. Ben plays lead guitar. Dan plays drums.
New additions are Boone and Weinstock, who fill out the band's sound with additional guitars. The band collaborates to write the music; lyrics are typically written by AJ.
